Zen and the Art of Driving

Of all the signs in traffic that hectic day, the yellow one on the blue car gave the best general direction...

Don't exactly know what it means. Don't know how to have one. But in tight situations my mother used to threaten to have one. A rigger. This looks like a good excuse for one.

Your ability to frame this shot in a glance... and actually photograph it in the middle of so much traffic... is phenomenal!

I love the colors, and love the way that bright yellow peace sign snaps the chaotic elements into sharp focus.

One of my all-time favs!

Make that, rigor. a condition that makes life difficult, challenging, or uncomfortable. I shouldn't say it if I can't spell it.

At least my mother knew what she was talking about. Traffic jams fall into this category.

L.A. traffic + a peace sign on the back of a car = one great picture. I love this.

Hey everyone!

Mister E, that Brenton Wood clip is great!

Thanks for all of your nice comments, people. I was stuck, stuck, STUCK on Fair Oaks in a complete stop for long enough to start getting cranky when I noticed the peace sign. Ahhhhhh.... much better. I was stuck long enough after that to grab my camera off the front seat and grab this shot before we finally started moving again. SOmetimes I just get lucky.

See you manana, everyone.
