Thematic Photographic 53


Carmi's Thematic Photographic Challenge 53 this week is Road. If you'd like more information about his challenge head on over to http://writteninc.blogspot.com/2009/06/thematic-photographic-53-road.html Carmi has a new challenge every wednesday. I posted a picture early from my trip to San Francisco of the crookedest street in the world. It has a series of 8 hairpin turns in one block. This is a shot looking down from the top which is a different view from the bottom shot I previously posted. Good brakes are mandatory to take this stretch of road.


Here is a picture of my own driveway. It's a tad bit bumpy and at one time there was a promise from a neighbour. He used to come pick up my daughter to take her to events with his daughter when they were in public school. He said that if he ever won the lottery the first thing he would do his pave our driveway. Since he doesn't come to pick Hayley up anymore I think the promise is probably defunct. There was also the friend who didn't realize that we had a turn around at the top and backed the whole way down. A month later she still had a stiff neck. After living on a busy road for two years it was nice to live here tucked away from all the traffic. My children could roam free without worry. I still love our bumpy country lane driveway...except in the winter when it needs to be plowed.

Wow, what a wonderful contrast between your two photos. I've never been to SF, but you sure make me want to go!

Your driveway, bumpy or not, rocks. Must be fun to stroll it on a cool spring day.

The San Fran scene just scares me. Every time I see photos of it, all I can think of it cars losing their brakes and careening out of control. Nah...I'll walk it.

I SO need to get out of suburbia :)

I love that driveway of yours. But I'm laughing about the sore neck. ;)
