Playing in Traffic...



"Chicken"
Philadelphia Museum of Art - Benjamin Franklin Parkway
Philadelphia, PA




Probably not the smartest of ideas.  But...kinda worth it.

  1. Maybe a risky move but it got you a seriously good image.

    As for my Philadelphia image today I rather like it for it's grittiness. There is always more to any city than it's best bits! It is a city I adore so a less glamorous view is never going to put me off, if anything it will only endear it to me even more.

    1. I liked your image too! Cities aren't pristine places. But they certainly are visually interesting in many different ways.

  2. Oh wow, you are brave! lol...I wonder what that oncoming car was thinking when they spotted you? :)

    Great shot!

  3. Oh my, you are lucky those are taxis out there and not police cars because surely one of them would have seen you and you might be taking
    shots from behind bars. That wouldn't be good, now would it? :)

  8. Gotta be quick (and good looking to not piss off the drivers) to get this shot-which is extra fabulous. I love your images-and extra love the Philly shots to remind me of my former home. Happy day friend.

  9. I blame myself for this......I mean I have been telling you how much I've been learning about your city through all your great commentary and images. And now I have experienced being in the traffic, sorry, being IN the traffic!!! Love the side framing of the bright colours and I can definitely hear all the associated sounds with the scene too.

  18. Great shot Kathy! Don't you simply LOVE PHOTOGRAPHY. I can't think of anything else at all that can make you so bold and innovative. And the great part of it is, YOU NEVER RUN OUT OF SUBJECTS! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog this morning also!
