Photo Blogging Challenge (April 2013): Transportation
You know, the way we all get around. There are so many modes of transportation. Car, train, boat, bus, bike, feet — you name it, there’s transportation.
But when doing a photo challenge, the normal isn’t always what you want to do, right?
So I went with the idea of a more loosely based interpretation of transportation. See, the No. 1 definition of transportation is “an act, process, or instance of transporting or being transported.”
I truly am excited to see what kind of things our group has come up with this month. I am sure there are many different ways to do it and with some of the bloggers we have participating, I’m sure it will be fun to see their five photos.
Originally, I was going to do some closeups on things like tires of different types of transportation. Or find still items, such as a bus or a truck. But I also wanted to think outside the box a little bit, which I think and hope I accomplished.
Anyway, on with mine. I hope you enjoy!
1. Taking the ball down the field
I shot a few lacrosse games this month and wanted to use something … so, of course this made sense. The player in gold is trying as much as he can to transport the ball down the field. It’s not always so easy when somebody doesn’t want your form of transportation to get by!
Boating is a great transportation. However, these fishing boats are still waiting the time when they’ll be used to transport the fishermen back out into the water. (Note: I also took this photo for Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day, which is why it has the look it has. Used a digital pinhole lens).
Is there an older form of transportation than by using one’s feet? I think not. You can do it so many ways, too. Well, what you wear that is. Sneakers, boots, barefoot — whatever. In the summer, I love my sandals. I’ve had this pair for several years. Though they look a tad beat up, I really do love them!
Much of transportation seems to be with a vehicle of sorts. Cars, trucks, etc. But you can’t always be driving, right? So when transporting things, such as yourself or physical objects, consider parking and taking a rest at times. It’s good for you!
5. My car
I like to walk or hike and ride a bike. But I really love my car. It’s a 2005 VW Jetta and it’s been beat all to hell. By me, too, as I leased it when it was new and then bought it. This car has been through some crazy times and many (160,000-plus) miles, seeing many states, two countries and so many back roads, it’s not even funny. It’s treated me well and keeps on rolling. And, it’s a stick shift, which makes it even better.
There’s my five and my interpretation of transportation. I hope you enjoyed.
If you took part this month, make sure you link up below. And for those who participated, make sure you try and get to other people’s blogs and comment and visit so we can continue to grow this challenge.
Don’t forget, too, to come back tomorrow and see the theme for May!
NOTE: I also set up a Facebook group for those who participate in the challenge and are interested. I’ll post any announcements there and hopefully it can be a place where things are discussed and some interaction etc. You can access it here.
