Car and Girl

Jaguar E-type, Paris, France
I never quite understood that need to adorn the pictures of new cars with beautiful women. Is it supposed to make men think that owning the car would make them more attractive to said women or is it just a way to sneak pictures of half-dressed women into car magazines?

While visiting my brother in Toronto, I decided to work on a picture for an online "water" photo contest.

The Gendarmerie Mobile is a subdivision of the French Gendarmerie, used mostly in riot-control.
