Photographer’s Notes
This is from the LeMay auto museum in Tacoma, Washington (USA). A fabulous museum if you’re ever in the area.

I love hood ornaments ... other than the misdemeanor theft and vandalism of same, why have they gone the way of the dodo? Certainly we could incorporate a taser into them, one that would hold the scofflaw immobile and call the cops. I would love to say, "There's an app for that!"

Not generally much interested in hood ornaments, but I am a sucker for pretty bokeh ;-)
