Chasing Cars {travel stories}

I settled in and made myself comfortable in the backseat, fully content to just stare out the window after a long day of work. It was a treat in itself to be taken out to dinner by two dear friends, and i was planning on unwinding during the short ride. A small smile stretched across my face as I started to take in the colors of dusk - my favorite time of day. I reached into my bag and laughed to myself as I realized I had the perfect position to rest my camera lens on a curve of the Civic . It was all I needed to steady my hand enough to capture the colors of the sky, the lights flashing by and the moving cars.

"Click, click, click"... Ted could hear me snapping away in the backseat. He asked Becky what I was doing and I can imagine that she described my scrunched down position with my eye locked to the view finder of the camera. Simply taking pictures of the scenary. In typical Ted fashion he asked me "Do you always do that?"

My mind started whirling through my travels and several photographs popped up.

Again I smiled to myself.
"Hmmm, yeah. I guess I do."
