On Sunday we drove to Maryland and these photos were taken on our journey there and back, either while driving - not me, I was the passenger - or when we stopped at the traffic lights.
The fire station was near a busy crossroads and I found it interesting enough to take a photo.
The bright florescent strips on the firemen's coats caught our eye and I passed the camera over to Gregg . If we were stopped at a traffic light and there was something interesting on his side of the car that he wanted to take a picture of, he would ask for the camera. If it was on my sign I would take the shot. It was how we passed the time, between chatting about life in general or what we had seen that day. Our journeys go pretty fast this way.
I thought perhaps the sunlight was peaking in at an angle as those stripes were shimmering. Otherwise all was in shadow.
These were near a school and it looked like the scenes were painted by children.
Another fire station....
and a church.
and another not too far down the road.
The last two photos were taken while stuck in traffic looking at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington DC.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing a little part of our world. It's not that often that we drive through such a busy area. I wondered about the people who lived here. Would they find suburbia boring, would the country be boring? There certainly seemed a lot of life going on and I found people watching as we went by very interesting. I love to people watch, is that because I am a nosy person or am I just curious, or both? I don't like to think it's because I'm just downright nosy. How many people out there enjoy this pastime, especially when traveling?
