Number Cruncher

Hand It To Me On A Plate

Photographs copyright: DAVID McMAHON

Sometimes my attention is caught by the smallest of details. Like this number plate (above) for instance. I wonder if these were the owner's initials or if he/she really was a Very Important Person. And just as I was uploading the picture, I remembered one that I shot back in 1999, with a little Instamatic. I shot it not just because of the colours of the Alaskan plate, but because of the raindrops on the chrome and the words ``850 lbs torque load maximum''.

Working where I do, I see plates from all over, including Alaska. Followed a familiar one on base the other week, focused on it and saw it was a Tennessee plate. Saw a lot of those on the recent road trip.

G'day FHB,

Yes, it should have struck me that you'd see plates from all over the country ....

Dunno that anyone saw your plate on the trip - you were goin' too darn quick!

Keep smiling

Hi Ruth,

That's terrific. I saw a car with the plat CPPPO recently - brilliant, C3PO!!

And there was a US skater in the early 80s who had the famous plate `AU IN 88' - gold in '88 ...

Keep smiling
