Downtown Traffic

Downtown Traffic

I'll get out and shoot some new stuff this weekend (the new camera is looking pretty cool) but I'm hard up right now. The plan was to post more orchid pix today. However, as I was leaving downtown and heading home last night, my comfy Honda and I got passed by a horse.

That doesn't happen every day. I whipped out my iPhone and shot this through the windshield just because it was strange. (Kids, don't try this at home.) It's a maybe 3/4 scale model of a Budweiser Clydesdale horse. There is an Anheuser-Busch distributor a few blocks away so it was probably heading home.

For local readers, this is southbound on 7th Street just north of Chouteau. The Purina headquarters is off camera to the right.

Well I mean you just had to get a shot of this Bob, as you say, not an everyday occurrence! I often do that, have a post all ready to go and then spot something that takes my fancy and have to show it first.

Thats why more newsphoto's are from amateurs then from real pro's these days. Its the coincidence and just have your mobile at hand. You don't see the difference with a very expensive camera and a mobile on internet and the mobile is quicker in spreading the news. Well done.

many years ago, at pre-school screening, my little daughter was asked, "which is faster, a horse or a train?" my daughter answered, "it all depends..." they marked her down for her answer but your picture today is the perfect illustration of my daughter's reasoning.

HA!!! That's a good one B. Times like this I wish I had an iPhone myself.

I don't have an I-phone but I sometimes grab my camera from the seat next to me. I would have hated to miss this one! Great fun!!!
