3 on Hydrant

Since yesterday's post obsessed with fire, it's only fitting to post a fire hydrant today.

"Never seen nobody take a picture of hydrant b'fore," says the middle-aged lady watching me from her driveway.

I forget how strange I must look--of course, I am a strange looking person in general--kneeling in the middle of the street to get just the right angle.

"Well, it's the ordinary stuff that makes for interesting shots," I smile back. "We get so used to it, we stop paying attention."

"Guess that's right," she nods.


  1. I know the feeling of people looking at you like you're nuts. I was at an elegant hotel once with a really unique ceiling, so I just laid down on the floor to shoot up at it. People were looking like I was a kook, but know what? As I was leaving, I looked back and there was another person doing the exact same thing!
