This months photo blogging challenge is – Vehicle
I have managed to get five photos this month, but I actually missed some great shots. Travelling along in the car, with iPhone in hand and ready was not good enough. By the time we’d seen it and I raised my phone it was gone! What was gone? A beautiful vintage car was gone! I suppose, on the road, is the best way to see vehicles, but it certainly isn’t the best way to photograph them, if they are going in the opposite direction. I missed several great shots that way.
I did, however, manage to get this cyclist, before he passed by, so all was not lost that day. We get a lot of cyclists around these parts.
As you may be aware, we have the Tour de France coming to Yorkshire in July and they are preparing for this huge event all along the route. They are closing about 100 roads during the event, so the roads that aren’t closing will be a nightmare to travel on. This next photo is a piece of art in a local shopping centre, depicting the cyclists.
The next is a common sight here. A tractor, pulling a truck full of what looked like grass, though I doubt it was. Nobody mows the grass here. The sheep do that 🙂
Here is another farm vehicle and I don’t pretend to know what jobs they all do, so that’s all I have to say on the subject. Where is the vintage car when you want it? Gone is where. Sorry about Mo’s green reflection in the car window.
This is a far more unusual sight where we live. In fact in the thirteen years we have lived here, it’s the first time we’ve seen it. Not one, but two police cars. I have no idea what it was for as there seemed to be no trouble anywhere. I do think they are parked rather strangely though. Almost as if they are hiding around the corner, in order to catch someone out. I watch too many police dramas 🙂
That’s my five for this month and I apologies for the fact that they are all phone shots. I haven’t been taking my camera out as we are going out each day for fast pace walking. Having a heavy camera swinging around your neck is not a good idea.
