You’re taking the same exit as the truck in front of you with the sign?
What do you do?
Roanoke Route 581 Photographed by Marlene with Erika driving. The truck exited the same direction they wanted to go. They exited too!
NYC- Spring Break. Spotted by my sister as we walked by.
They looked even more precarious in person, though, as you stood below and looked up!

Bus checks are necessary as sleeping children have been left on empty (almost) busses
The family was on vacation in Michigan this week.
My son Mark photographed Anna sitting on the Montgomery City Bus, in the very seat in which Rosa Parks was arrested, Dec 1, 1955.
The Rosa Parks Bus is in The Henry Ford in Dearborn Michigan. The exhibit is titled With Liberty and Justice for All.

Rosa Parks is buried in Woodlawn Cemetery in Detroit Michigan. Here is the Wikipedia link to the “First Lady of Civil Rights”
Oh, I’ve seen car and I’ve seen train…….
Columbus, Ohio- Saturday afternoon. Shot from the second floor of the parking garage on our way to the car show.d
A sliver of a city scene. A bit of sunlight. Shapes and lines. A car driving down the middle of the road.
I went and looked at all my blog posts tagged transportation and I ‘ve shot a lot of cars, trains, buses, motorcycles, taxis and trucks.
Photographing four kids together can be tricky and exasperating, trying to get everyone looking pleasant simultaneously.
The first photo is one solution. Take them from behind!
Seems easier with the distraction and props of shiny new cars at the Columbus Car Show. Pretty good cooperation. Especially when they weren’t really thinking about me and my camera! Listening to the finer points of this Mustang by Ford
They were smiling and posing for their Dad in this one. He bought a couple of raffle tickets to win the Cobra, supporting Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
The interior of the Rolls Royce. This was behind a barrier. No one got to touch it, let alone sit inside it.
Headed for home.
I like it when a color photo looks black and white. Well, gray and white.
After school I drove up to Mount Washington to see the ice on the rivers. The Monongahela, the Allegheny and the Ohio.
The Rivers Casino’s sign adds some color
The barge turned to dock
Driving on the North Side to home, headed down Chestnut Street towards Phineas Street. Going to cross the Allegheny on the 16th Street Bridge but before I got to the intersection, a car stopped in front of me to chat or ask directions of the pedestrians.
I noticed the trolley tracks and the bricks. Caught a quick picture on the phone.
So when did the streetcars stop? here is the answer
“The trolley lines could have been extended, perhaps. But as Touring Pittsburgh author Harold Smith observes with a minimum of rancor (for a trolley fan), “PAT was bus-minded to a fault. Between 1964 and 1967, it ended trolley service on all North Side and East End lines. By the early 1970s, only the present South [Hills] and the 53-Carrick line remained.”
