This is why I always take my camera with me. Lately I've taken to having it next to me in the front seat whenever I drive anywhere; I seem to come upon these kinds of scenes frequently and hate it when I say,"Oh, if only I had my camera!" This was a traffic island at a very busy 5 way intersection in Portland yesterday.
So I'm thinking of starting a weekly photo meme called Drive-By Photos or Auto-Focus (thanks Gwenlyn) or Don't Leave Home Without It -- the challenge is to take and post photos that are spontaneous, fun, odd, quirky - from your vehicle or bike or on a bus, or on foot.
Would you be interested in participating in such a challenge? Probably on a Tuesday or Thursday. Quality doesn't count here, they're likely to be blurry or have a messy background. I'm looking for unusual scenes. Leave me a comment and I'll gauge the interest. Even if there isn't, I plan to post these weekly for awhile. I already have a folder full of them! I'd love to see what you come up with.
