It’s the Weekly Photo Challenge by Michelle Weber at WordPress- Windows!

She asks What do you see though yours? I went back a few years and looked through the archives and there are lots of window images.  Car windshields, curio cabinets, subway and train windows, house and downtown office windows, refrigerator and store window displays.

Note to Self: Leave Home Ten Minutes Earlier

Two school buses and a garbage truck stopped on the narrow street as I made my way to school. A standstill, brake lights on. Do you worry? No, you photograph the scene. Write a note to self.

Almost Late for School

You get behind a garbage truck on a narrow street. A school bus bears down on your tail, headlights reflected in your rearview mirror. The minutes tick tick tick.  You watch the men pitch the bags into the back. Both sides of the street. You should have left home earlier, not stopped for coffee, gone a different route. You make it in time.  But you might as well relax and take out your camera and shoot because there is no getting by.

You're stuck on Spring Street behind a garbage truck. It's a narrow street.
Just relax and photograph the scene where you are trapped.
