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
Sorry about the delay, but what an amazing opportunity sprang out of it! 🙂
Thanks. A good test of patience. Grateful I wasn’t IN the accident. Friday afternoons and evenings everyone wants to get somewhere, and fast!
TGIF, eh. even in America 🙂
what a great photo!
Manifesting in action – with wonderful results. Glad to hear you got to where you were going safe and sound, if somewhat delayed.
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.
What a wonderful reflection of the sky. That seemed to be one clean truck.
