2009.021 . Late Evening Commute

Today was a little busy and got by me before I knew it. With contractors here in the morning working on the kitchen and bathroom repairs, then classes in the afternoon and lab at night, it was during the drive home that I thought about taking a few photos. It's illegal to operate a cellphone without a hands-free device in California, but it seems taking a photo or two at a stop light isn't so bad. This one is the best of 6 or 7 of them, with the green red and blue lights, the nice glow of red on the dashboard (perhaps from a stoplight or the brakes of the truck in front of me), and the car in a nice state of "auto stop" with the engine silent.

 

My favorite items in this photo are the radio station (my favorite Jazz 88.3 San Diego) and the 45.3 mpg fuel economy for the day showing on my Civic's display. When I got home, it was 45.1 over the 52-mile round-trip commute. Not the best, but still quite satisfying.
