What I See When Michael Drives

It's probably a gang thing,
it's got that little devil tail,
and it resembles a lot of gang graffiti around town,
especially here downtown.
It probably means something totally different
than what it says.
But I don't care.
I'll take it at its word.

It's probably been there forever,
it's just a couple blocks down the road,
but usually I drive when we go to lunch,
and when I drive I miss everything.
the ever-wonderful Michael's been behind the wheel.
Amazing what I now see.
yesterday, in the rain


  1. yes, it's great being the passenger, so many details to get lost in. wonderful find

  2. the best photos come from that passengers seat i say!

  3. you see things differently when you're in the passenger seat. nice capture

  4. isn't that the truth !
    when my hubby drives, the world always looks different to me and fortunately he stops, often, so that I can get out and photograph what I'm drawn to.....

  5. SEEK!

    Who know the gangbangers were so self actualized! LOL.

    Great shot!

  6. Maybe there are street philosophers roaming about? :)

  7. The universe speaks to us in mysterious ways.

    I wish someone would drive my car for a little while. And if I do see something when I am driving, I am usually too lazy to stop. I must change this.


come. sit under the emma tree & let's talk. i have cookies . . .
