This time of year it is all about rushing. Rush to work, and home; company parties, shopping, children’s plays, recitals, shopping, dinner parties and more shopping. There should be no limit to the possible photo ops and I have found myself with ZERO photos on the camera. I carried the camera with me all week. Nothing. Two days ago I began looking through the Houston archives. Nothing.
I suggested this topic. Surely I had an idea for a photo to post. Nothing comes to mind. Last week Patty and I went shopping for Thanksgiving dinner supplies, the lines were miles long, everyone in a rush to get home. Did I take an interesting photo – NO. On Thursday night we went to Wal-Mart to see ‘black Friday’ activities. It was a madhouse people acting like idiots, rushing about then standing in a line that wound around the store, probably a quarter mile long. No dollar saved was worth standing in that line. Did I take photos – NO. Are you getting the idea that this is a disclaimer?
Right at this moment in time I don’t work. In fact, I avoid going out between 6 – 8 am and if I do go out, I try to be back at the house or hiding in a coffee shop between 4 and 6pm. Houston is a ‘get there by car or don’t go at all’ town. Missouri city does not have any mass transit options. Avoiding rush hour out this direction is a matter of survival. Today I took two photo – snap shots really – that can give you an idea of what a society driven by cars means on a daily basis.
