Split second timing!


I pulled up behind this cyclist on Summit Avenue, both of us waiting for the light to change.  My camera was on the floor behind me.  I put the car in park, opened both car doors, grabbed the camera, hopped back into the front (hoping my timing was right), and got a snapshot through the windshield.  One of the best scenes of this summer!!

    I can just imagine you scrambling out to get your camera!
    ...and good for her...running errands on her bike...

  4. Makes me wonder who the flowers were for. Maybe for a loved one, an art project, just to beautify her home? Nice capture.

  5. What a fun shot, it made me smile to think of all the possible stories which could go along with this cyclist and her lovely flowers.

  6. Total serendipity, Kate. I love it! Not only is it a great summertime photo, it shows creative problem solving to a T--look how she's carrying her flowers so that her hands are free for the bicycle!

  7. On her way to brighten some ones (maybe her own) day! She has brightened yours already! Neat capture.

    1. I am having a hard time responding to Filip's site. Although his post can be translated, I can't figure out how to navigate the comment section. Anyone know how?

  15. Phew! You got it! That "gotta get it" pressure can be a bit much, can't it? Well done!

  16. This is cute, Kate. I like the idea that she has a purpose and we can jump momentarily into her life and observe her and guess about it, but the purpose remains hers alone.

  17. This is lovely, Kate! The mix of colors and the story behind the shot make it one of my favorites, too.
