the road less traveled

I drove past this yesterday and nearly ran off the road. For a minute, I thought I was at Universal Studios and someone had rolled one of those big canvas scenes by me. But no - it was really there and although I was on a street with no shoulder, I had to stop. Right square in the middle of the street. And Anna was in the backseat saying, "Mom....." and I replied, "Sorry, babe - I can't NOT get this. I have to."

 

If I hadn't, it would have been in my brain forever as a few shots that I have missed and still think about are. Cars were driving by and around me slowly, looking at me wondering if I needed help, (yes, I do - but not the kind they could assist with) wondering what I was doing.

 

And I got it. And I love it. It is a sweet scene. Looks to me like it could have been taken in the 70's. The color of the trees go so well with the classic ride and the sinking tires. I wonder about the car in it's prime and the memories it holds. All of it spoke to me. And now It can speak to you.

 

I am thankful to see this and feel something really powerful. Happy Thanksgiving, friends. I am also really thankful for you, your comments and appreciation of my stuff and for posting your shots that keep me inspired.
