Weekly Photo Challenge: Merge

This week’s challenge was something to think about on my trip from Pittsburgh to Columbus Friday afternoon.  Sorting through images I had in the archives. (in my mind, obviously)   Nothing jumped out.  And then-

an opportunity presented itself, right in front of me. Standstill traffic.  On Route 70 West, Friday afternoon.

A 3 1/2 hour trip took almost SIX hours to drive today due to congestion from road work and merging to a single lane and perhaps a bad accident that was cleaned up by the time I got to the site.

I saw police and emergency vehicles driving the other direction with lights and sirens.

A truck reflected the sky AND an old fashioned airplane is in the left door panel.  It looks like a bird. The sky seemed to merge with the reflection in the shiny truck.  Nature and machine-made merge.  I waited to merge to the left single lane. Other interpretations of merge are here

  1. It can be so frustrating to find yourself stuck in one of those traffic tie-ups. You did put the time to good use, though. That’s a great photo, Ruth, and a clever answer to the challenge.
