    Since I don't get the chance to go out for photo walks as much as I'd like. I figured I keep shooting during my drive home. I have some interesting routes as I travel from the south bay in Los Angeles up through Hawthorne and Inglewood until I get home in Hollywood.

    All of these photos are taken with my x10 from the drivers seat. It's already proven to be a fun challenge as I only have a few seconds to setup and take a shot before it's gone. I'm going to try and vary my route as I work on this series so it's not the same old shots every time. =)

    I do not know what drives this method
    Of answering posts in verse perfected
    But surely it must take more time
    To respond each time in careful rhyme?

    I typically tend to take them while the car is stopped at a light or a stop sign. If no one is behind me I'll stop for 2 seconds to take the photo but nothing longer. If I can't get it in 2 shots I drive on!

    My hands remain in proper place,
    until I bring the camera to my face.
    I do appreciate your concern,
    So let me impart what I have learned.
    I always check and look around,
    Just to be sure I stay safe and sound.
    My shots are done at a light or sign,
    In hopes of getting a photo that's might fine.

    I loves me some of them spicy Doritos,
    surely more tasty than those Cigarillos.
    I'd love to play along with more meter and rhyme,
    but my skills are weak and I don't have much time.
