Postcard #40. Red Ferrari 458

Vlad from Pacific Pines requested a “Red Ferrari 458“. I though t this would be an easy request. It wasn’t. Whilst I saw many Ferraris in Rome, I saw no 458s except for a blue one, conveniently parked, so I was able to photograph it at great length, but when I realised no red ones would be forthcoming, I bought Vlad a toy one from the Ferrari shop instead.

I was excited to discover it was remote controlled, so I dipped its little wheels in black and ink and drove around on paper making little skids. Unfortunately the car now only goes in reverse, but not before I was able to smudge together a Ferrari logo from ink burnouts which I think Vlad will find appealing, even if I did break his toy doing so.
