Sunday 15 April 2012: April Challenge - transportation
This one really has to be viewed large!
As usual, the day's theme has provoked a good deal of discussion in this house. You know how sometimes it's hard to choose a single blip. Well today I didn't. I took about 70 photos of various aspects of transportation which showed themselves to me as we wandered around Leith this morning, out of which I created 37 nicely edited pictures. These can be viewed here as a slideshow on Flickr. Of the 37 about 35 make an appearance in this collage, which was the first I have ever made, and was such great fun I might have to do it again some time soon. If I can remember the workflow.
What this brought home to me is how transportation, its management, its context is so dominant in our every day lives. This shows the great variety of means of transport in just this little patch of Leith, and I missed a few great images such as an invalid carriage and a bike tag-along. We also didn't see any airborne transport (apart from birds with their own wings) or wheelchairs. Or trams, for that matter, but that's another thing, but I won't go there.
This is definitely the most time I (and also Mr A who kindly helped me a lot) have ever spent on a single blip. But I hope you agree with me that it's worth it.
I'll answer any queries or challenges in the comments.
