Parking Space
April 2008

My iTunes: Trumpet Concerto in Eb composed by Haydn

Here is a little bit of yellow that some of us might see -- or even look for -- everyday without realizing it. It's not too often that we get this close of a look at it, though, and if we're bending down like this, it's usually to check our tire pressure... unless you're doing a series of blog posts with the theme of Project: Yellow.

Okay, I admit, it's an old shot and I wasn't taking it specifically for Project: Yellow. There's NO way I could get down at this angle right now, at least not without excruciating pain from my herniated disc. BUT, I did re-edit this shot and made the yellow a bit more punchy. However, were I able to get down at this angle, I would absolutely do so for a picture.

That's kind of the fun of this...seeing what we normally might overlook. I searched my archives as well. I've only put up two so far but am looking forward to future challenges.

Your pictures are wonderful, but I fell in love with the flower bucket from the other post!

Christy,

I wanted to take a photo of the dotted lines on a road, but let's just say I haven't found an uninhabited one yet ;). I never thought of a parking spot, and yet it's so obvious!

Nice take on the ordinary :).

Like Robin, I'd had my eye on the highway centerline as well. Much safer your way. And a great shot to boot.

Do you still have that picture of me from the summer, laying on the ground taking a picture at the Grymms Dyke?

Anna -- yes, I should still have that picture you mentioned.

Christy: Nice photo of the line. I had a similar idea yesterday but was waiting till the end. I will follow you until you have the surgery.
