Seattle Hood Ornament

Perhaps only in the Pacific Northwest would a car owner replace their hood ornament with a leaping salmon. :-) I did a disbelieving double take as we pulled up alongside this black car, then hurriedly whipped out the camera and tried to focus. We were at a stop light and I was riding shotgun and poked the lens under the poor driver's chin! Happy blue sky Friday everyone!

This is too cool. I could see this in Alaska, too!

That's great! I wonder what the story behind the salmon is, other than it's a symbol of the Northwest...

Good job under trying circumstances! That is pretty funny!

I know you're not fishing for a compliment, but that's a really neat photo, Kim!

A great find and good job in B&W.

Great capture, Kim. I adore hood ornaments, esp. the old ones, but this one is truly unique!

well spotted and well caught - a bit of photo-tickling there!

Oh, that's hilarious! And you're right: only in the PNW!
