Big & small cars CONTRAST!

The THEME for City Daily Photo blogs for October is CONTRAST! My office assistant, Allison, and I drove around Eagan in her BIG Chevy Suburban between office clients just to find a SMALL Mini Cooper with which to contrast. Friendly Doug and his pet Chihuahua were happy to be photographed for my blog. When we arrived back at the office after chasing around town, we spotted a cute, yellow, Mini Cooper in our parking lot!

How do Mini Coopers contrast with Suburbans? Look at the numbers: Length: 8 feet, 1 inch VS 18 feet, 6 inches
Width: 5 feet, 6 inches VS 6 feet, 7 inches
Height: 4 feet, 7 inches VS 6 feet, 5 inches
Weight: 2,568 pounds VS 7,400 pounds
Gas usage: not so much VS a lot!
Base cost: $19,500 VS $40,000
Passengers: 4 & SMALL dog VS 7 & BIG dog

  1. Nice contrast. When I had a Mini, driving on the freeway next to a semi used to scare the heck out of me.

  2. Safe Leif's camera is very speedy as you would not have believed how that sweet puppy was shaking! Doug was such a kind, willing participant, too!

    Ich glaube, Sie haben einen lieben, netten und grosszügigen Chef, dass Sie sich ein solch grosses Auto leisten können :-))

    Liebe Grüsse an Ihren Big Boss Leif

  9. Great contrast idea. Another good example would be of those itty-bitty "Smart" cars, which are even tinier than the Mini-Coop! (See my 5/26 entry.) :-)
