A Smog of Vespas

A Smog of Vespas
I'm not sure what the collective noun for scooters is, but after enduring the delightful oil cloud around copious Vespas today, I'm going with 'a smog'. :)

This is the queue for the queue for the Isle of Wight ferry where the world's biggest scooter festival is being held over the bank holiday weekend. Being in a building right next to this lot, I've just about had my fill of the sound of two-stroke engines today. :)

Excellent shot, works so well in B&W too, agh the sound and more importantly the smell of two strokes take me back some years!

I can understand that the sound would become annoying, but it does look like fun, riding one of those Vespas, and at least you got this good picture.

B&W was a great choice for this. Really gives the period feel. The only things giving it away is the age of the riders and the modern hatchback.

p.s. maybe a buzz of Vespas or a swarm?
