Seen Around

Photos by Salt Water New England





"OH" shouldn't be too hard to figure out, given the clues.



"JBY" is easier in context.

  1. ...still trying to figure out the reflection vs photographer in the first picture, but love the perspective(s) in that shot! Appreciate the puns in this Seen Around. Thank you!

  2. Well, there was at least one Land-Rover there. A real one, too.

    Now I want to see a Triumph Stag. Will settle for a Rover 2000.

  4. Oh, how sad the RR owner must have been to settle for GAT5BY. I wonder who has GATSBY...

    1. Someone on Cape Cod. I saw a vintage car in Chatham with GATSBY.

    2. Oh, sorry - I checked my photo and the vintage car in Chatham, Mass. had plates saying "GATSBE'.

  5. Saw this license plate on an SL Roadster: "WAS HIS"

    Assume she got the car in the divorce.

  7. My wife's plate, when I first met her, was PEACH. She was from Georgia. And she is.

  8. In an odd way, this license plate whimsy seems to me to be the American equivalent of Haiku – but instead of having three lines of unrhymed verse to covey your message, one is limited to only seven spaces.

    I’ve also noticed the common use of “r” “u” and “4” in many of these fun, idiosyncratic expressions.

  9. Years ago, a car passed me on the Maine Turnpike with the license, BAHABA. It took me a few minutes to figure that out!

    1. Took me more than a few, but I finally got it...

  10. New York State allows eight spaces. But authorities retain editorial rights. To prevent perhaps plates lilike: soxs*ck
