Week 41: Traffic

I cannot believe I didn’t plan this post better.  I think this might be the latest I’ve been on a weekly photo challenge.  Ever.  You’ll have to excuse.

I tried a couple of different things this week and none of them spoke to me.  Traffic has been a headache on Main Street (which I cross every morning and evening) because of the Sherman Minton Bridge closure and I took advantage of it.  But it wasn’t good.  If I could have gotten into traffic, it would have been better.  But I had no spotter.  And I don’t play in traffic unless there’s a spotter.  That’s one of my rules.

So I tried again on another downtown street.  It was a no go as well.  If only I could crouch between the cars…  And then a try on the expressway when I a passenger.  Nuh-uh.  Too back-seat feeling, not the kind of photo I wanted.  And that’s when I looked at the hubs in the driver’s seat.  *light bulb*

Here is my traffic:

Week 41: Traffic

The angle may not be the most pleasant but it’s a spin on the subject.  Sitting in traffic.  Waiting in traffic.  Trying-to-be-patient-but-still-have-that-bad-ass-look-on-your-face-like-you-mean-business in traffic.

I also happen to be a huge fan of his beard.  So I like the scruffs he’s got going on in this picture.

Head on over to the WPC Flickr Group with me to see how others captured “traffic”.  With so many people from all over the world, I can’t wait to see some street shots!  There’s also the Challenger Roll if you feel the need to exercise your mind this evening.

On to Week 42 and capturing SQUARE.  And that’s all she wrote.

Wendi @ Bon Appetit Hon - Brooke, the angle of this photo is what makes me love it so. It’s unexpected.
