Default The View on your Rear-View (Pictures taken through your rear view mirrors)

I recently saw a post on 'rear view mirror photography' on a website and thought it would be a great idea for a photography thread. We could use this thread to post some interesting pictures clicked through our car rear view mirrors.

Here are some sample pictures on what has to be posted.

Im not sure this is the best thing to do while driving, especially not in traffic. For all you know you will be clicking something in your rear view mirror, and you end up rear-ending the car in front. (no not from personal experience )

I really wouldn't recommend taking pictures while driving, and I guess almost everyone here in TeamBHP is responsible enough not to do so.
BTW, I was stuck in traffic for over 20 mins where I came up with this thought and clicked the pic.

Thank you Lukeskywalker and vivekiny2k for posting your pics. This is exactly what we need here

A new way to look at life for most other folks, and a way of life for people in my profession! Interesting topic to pick, Pri2. Here's one from my side...

Had taken this pic long back on MS Ramaiah road. If you look carefully, you can see the mile long bumper to bumper traffic!

@Ardy, Love the pic!
The black background that you've managed makes it look so much better!
