A perk of living amongst the fabulously wealthy is that they have very very shiny cars. This combined with good light and great elevations makes for great photos.

I recently learned that “elevation” is an architecture term of art commonly used to impress one's friends, family, and readers. It refers to a building's facade. More precisely:

"A drawing of the walls of one side of a building, either interior or exterior, with all lines drawn to a scale to show true vertical and horizontal dimension; also used in reference to the vertical plane of a building, as in the 'west elevation'."

For the uninitiated, this is a great Google hint. This definition came from Google definitions. If you simply type "define: elevation" for example, into Google it will give you multiple definitions of the word - super useful.

See? You can lean something from reading My Soho Life after all.

I love these. The first photo looks like a digitally enhanced piece of art. It is a great surprise to realize, after reading your blog, what it is. Your opening line is great. Shiney rich people...really add to our aesthetic life.
