Where I live there are numerous canopy roads. I’ve mentioned this before, but I’ve never been able to get a decent picture of the roads because they are tree-lined, narrow and frequently in use. Consequently, there’s no safe place to pull over and take pictures.
Lynn, author of Good Things Happened, shows beautiful pictures of Atlanta and other areas around there on her site. She frequently takes “windshield pictures,” but is always careful to mention she’s stopped when she takes these pictures. It’s fun to see what Lynn “sees” in her world. When you visit her site, be sure to click on the pictures to see them enlarged. They are lovely:~)
I figured if she could do it, it was worth a try. I took this picture from my car. It wasn’t easy, but I was lucky this day. The road was clear, allowing me to slow down and snap the picture. I liked it.
What struck me about this picture is that I captured the “bend in the road” and, of course, this made me think of the following story photo challenge:
Imagine you’re driving this road and are about to go around the bend, what do you see?
Ideas to play with: (Pick one you like)
1) Create a short conversation about what you see between you and a passenger in the car about what’s around the bend.
2) Describe whatever is around the bend in as much detail as you can.
3) Make up something crazy and wild; something that will make me laugh out loud.
Tell me about a favorite road in your area. Why do you like it? What’s special about the road? How do you feel when you’re on the road, whether driving, a passenger or walking?
