February City Daily Photo Theme Day: Entry

 February already! Those of you who have been following VDP for a while might remember the Young Old Timer Club. For the third year, those youngsters organised a night race of old and vintage cars on 25 January and VDP attended part of the afternoon registration process on Avenue de Paris. Amongst them was this BNC (Bollack, Netter et Compagnie), a French car builder of the 1920s, the first one to register for the 'nocturnal' (la nocturne). Does it qualify for 'entry'? If you would like to see the 2012 cars, click here. To see more 2014 cars, it's this way. Wishing you a fantastic new month! Click here to view all participants in the CDP Theme Day! And thank you for all your marvellous comments yesterday!

Déjà le mois de février ! Ceux qui suivent VDP depuis un certain temps se souviendront peut-être du Young Old Timer Club. Le 25 janvier, c'était le troisième rallye nocturne de voitures anciennes et vintage et VDP s'est rendue à l'enregistrement des participants avenue de Paris dans l'après-midi. Parmi les voitures, il y avait cette BNC (Bollack, Netter et Compagnie), un constructeur français des années 1920 de Levallois-Perret. Le thème du mois de février de la communauté des blogueurs City Daily Photo est "entry", ce qui peut notamment se traduire par la candidature à un événement, d'où ces photos, puisque la BNC porte le numéro 1. Pour voir les voitures du rallye de 2012, c'est par ici ! Pour voir quelques autres photos des véhicules de 2014, c'est par ici. VDP vous souhaite un excellent mois de février ! Toutes les interprétations du thème sont par ici. Et merci pour tous vos merveilleux commentaires hier !
VDP has no clue what this black car was. 

VDP n'a aucune idée de ce qu'était cette voiture noire.

Tanya Breese said...

ok, yours is the first theme post i've visited but i'm pretty sure it's going to be my favorite! love it!

Lowell said...

Never heard of BNC which isn't surprising. Looks like an old touring car and just the thing for those folks standing around it! What a fun event this must be.

The word, "entry," has several definitions, so you're right on target! Happy Feb. 1!

Birdman said...

Qualify? Of course. Am I 'registering envy' ? You betcha!

Sylvia K said...

Looks like such a fun event indeed, Ciel! Love the old cars and period clothes!! Have a great weekend!!

RedPat said...

I would love to dress up like that and tour around in such a car!

William Kendall said...

It's a word with several interpretations, so this qualifies.

Those are beautiful cars!

Virginia said...

I love the wonderful interpretations of our theme each month. Bravo!

I love that second image with the people all dressed up around the wonderful old car.

I thought of the "registration" meaning of "entry," but couldn't think of how that would translate into a photo. Well done.

Thérèse said...

Bien vu! Ce rallye vient bien à point aussi bien pour combattre la grisaille que pour passer de beaux moments visuellement pour les spectateurs et techniquement pour les conducteurs.

Bibi said...

Bravo! J'ai failli mettre une telle photo, interpretant le theme comme vous, mais en fin de compte, j'ai choisi une porte delabree. Ceci dit, j'aimerais bien faire un tour dans cette voiture!

Dina said...

The costumes are as fun to see as the vintage cars.
Nice ENTRY for Theme Day. Nice way to start the blog's 6th year.

Gunn said...

SUPERB choice of ENTRY for the theme day image.
Happy Weekend to you and yours.

Wonderful looking old vehicles, wouldn't want to be driving around with the roof down at the moment though... it's freezing!

Stuart said...

Great interpretation ! I love these old cars. You got some excellent captures of them !

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Absolutely Ciel.. an 'entry' into a genteel, elegant world.. even if it is only for a certain period :)

Very creative choice.

I had to travel on business yesterday and missed your 5th anniversary of daily photo blogging. Congratulations. You have made many people aware that Versailles is much more than a palace.

Small City Scenes said...

Looks like a perfect 'Entry' for the theme.
Good for you

VP said...

I like your address to the court even more than the beautiful images!

Daryl said...

clever!

Bob Crowe said...

Thinking outside the box, as they say. Sure, it's an entry. I need a cravat like that.

Randy said...

Very creative theme day photos.

Oakland Daily Photo said...

Yours was the most unique take on the word "entry." Kudos.

Halcyon said...

Oh, this looks like fun! And a very creative interpretation of the theme day!

Olivier said...

superbe ces vieilles voitures, cela me fait rever

LOLfromPasa said...

Wonderful idea on how to approach theme day topic. Fun photo too! PS Now I am going to see what you posted yesterday :).

paul said...

A beautiful entry - well more than one, even!

Kay said...

A lovely interpretation of "entry!" And a very elegant one at that! These cars look like fun but I'll bet our ordinary cars of today are far more comfortable...and safe.

Definitely an entry, and I would have loved to see it run! Congratulations on five years of VDP. I aspire to make that mark and applaud you for your beautiful photos of Versailles.

Bises,
