New Tumblr

I started a little tumblr called Pictures of People Taking Pictures of my Car. The little Fiat gets photographed a billion times a day and at some point I started taking pictures of people taking pictures until I had a decent collection going.Β It’s silly but it makes me laugh and now I have a place to put my photos.

Pictures of People taking Pictures of My Car

ps: We filmed a little commercial for Ebay last month. It’s filled with things we actually bought from Ebay (like the car!) I’ve heard you can see it on Youtube as a commercial but for anyone that is curious you can see them right here.Β It was really fun to make and I love how they turned out.

    Ha, that’s awesome! Growing up, my Dad always said that one day he would try to find a Fiat for me; boy, did he ever know my taste. Your car is adorable!

    I love it! We moved to Italy a month and half ago and there are still so many of them around. I guess it is a bit more of a novelty in America. I still want one!

    Hysterical. Love it!
    I actually had the idea that it would be fun to take pictures of tourists taking pictures of themselves in front of landmarks but I am too lazy to stand around taking their picture.

    Haha! You should add some kind of sign with a suggested hashtag (#littleredfiat or something) so people can tag their photos and you can see all of them!

    Oooh, the current world of social media…

    I saw your car a couple weeks ago! I knew you had a red Fiat but I didn’t put two and two together. It’s even cuter in person. Love it.

    That’s so neat πŸ™‚ It’s such a cute car.

    p.s. I used your Honeycomb Garland tutorial for my daughter’s birthday. It was so well loved that we kept it up until it was time to decorate for Christmas πŸ™‚

    I just showed my husband this post and he said, hey, isn’t that the same red car you took a photo of last month? We went to the Mission District early November–I was taking a picture of a beautiful red door, and he saw across the street a red car and said, hey, take a photo of this car! Sadly, it’s not a picture of me taking a picture of your car. We had a great time–went to Bi-Rite, Tartine, Pizzeria Delfina, Dolores Park. I used to live on Dolores Terrace when I was in 1st and 2nd grade at Notre Dame and got my first communion at Mission Dolores; it was lovely to be there again.

    Oh my goodness! You know what you should do? Think of a hashtag, get a decal made of the hashtag, and put it on the back corner of your window or something. Follow the hashtag feed online to see all the fun pictures your little car ends up in! It would be a hit!

    This is too good! But I don’t blame any of the people though. Especially when you put a Christmas tree on top of it!! I would love the opportunity to photograph your family going on an adventure in your cute little fiat!

    haha, that’s too precious! i would totally take a pic of your car, too if i’d stumble upon it in the city ;D it’s so rare to see small, cute cars here (being from europe it’s still astounding to see so many huge SUVs in a CITY). lovely idea!

    that is is hysterical! and i would totally stop to take a shot of your car. it’s adorable! and with the christmas tree on top? just stop.

    Such a perfect car for the city! I’m afraid my Studebaker wouldn’t navigate/park so well there. I have my own collection of slips of paper/business cards left on my windshield asking if its for sell (I bet you have those too).
    Last time I was in SF I snapped a picture of this car…it makes me laugh every time I look at it! I’ve never seen so many precautions made, and for such a crappy car!

    We have a 1959 Fiat in baby blue. I don’t think I realized what an attention grabber they are. It’s an awfully fun car, although ours doesn’t go very fast, except downhill!
