Objects in the Photos May Appear Closer Than They Are
The first of every month is City Daily Photo theme day, and April's theme is Yellow. Because of our late snowfall in February and March, all of my flowers are behind schedule for blooming. Consequently, there are no yellow daffodils or yellow tulips or yellow forsythia in my garden to photograph. What else is yellow this time of year?
Admittedly, I had to dig deep for a subject for this month's theme.
But then a week ago I was driving to Spokane to visit my grandchildren when I came upon a convoy of heavy machinery moving down the highway. I first noticed the big yellow OVERSIZE LOAD sign, and then I saw that each vehicle was also yellow, albeit dirty yellow. VOILA! I had found my subject(s).
Now to capture these rolling behemoths without endangering myself or others. Being an iPhone photographer made it easier because, 1. I always have my phone with me, and 2. It's easy to set it up on the dash and take several photos in burst mode. It also helped that there was little if any other traffic behind me, so I was never in danger.
These photos should bring out the little boy or girl in all of us who once loved playing in the dirt with their yellow Tonka toy trucks.
Oh, and the last photo? That's me piloting my yellow snowblower in February. Even at 69, I love pushing around big machinery. (I couldn't resist including it in this month's celebration of the color Yellow.)
