drive-by shootings

a car. a camera. a vision.

Tuesday PM, Gay Street

with 5 comments

My first drive-by encounter.  I was spotted taking this photo.  He waved.  I waved.  Then he got up.

Green light.  Traffic was moving.  He walked across traffic and stood in front of the truck.  I waved him over to the window.  He mumbled something about needing a job — it was hard to understand.  I gave him a dollar…smiled…and said “I’ll see you soon”.

For his sake…I hope I don’t, but something inside me says I will.

  1. Definately worth a buck! I like that you gave some background on this one! I’m glad he waved. (and didn’t get mad). You need like a camera on your hat and one of those Jeopardy clickers leading to it, so you aren’t ‘found out’. lol. Great shot!

  3. Yes, as long as the unexpected isn’t like a baseball bat or something! Kinda scary! REAL scary!

    Oooo, hey, like your new logo.
