If You Can Read This, You’re Too Close.

Why would people create bumper stickers that you can’t read from a safe driving distance? I almost killed myself three or four times on the way to work this week, because I was trying to read bumper stickers. Either get a bigger font size or get me a personal driver so I can read things on the way to work.

I try to take my camera with me wherever I go. You never know when you’re going to come across something interesting that you want to capture in a photo. One thing that I like to do is take picture of accidents. I don’t try to take pictures of anything too horrible, and I try not to hold up traffic when I take my pictures. I put the camera out the window and hope I’m pointing it in the right direction as I drive by the scene.

Today was a horrible traffic day, which meant it was a particularly good day for accident photo opportunities. There must have been a big pileup on the opposite side of the freeway, because the 91 was turned into a parking lot for a while. There were fifteen squad cars on each side of the divider. By the time I got there, everything was pretty much cleared except for the law enforcement officers themselves.
