As a society, I think we’re getting just a little bit spoiled … especially here in the good old U.S of A. And I’ll be the first to admit I’m as bad as anyone. For instance, when I need to get our one and only car serviced, Big O Tires is kind enough to offer me a ride home so I don’t have to wait in their lounge. So far, I haven’t taken advantage of this courtesy, but then I only live about 300 yards from the shop. 🙂
Another wonderful convenience is the “drive-thru”. Virtually all of the fast food chains have one and even one of our local Starbucks Coffee Shops is willing to oblige anyone who is just in too big a hurry to take the time to park, walk inside, and wait in that line.
Actually, on a side note, I’ve felt pretty “inconvenienced” ever since we left Florida back in 1973. Not far from our house was a drive-thru where you could get milk, bread, eggs, and even a six-pack of beer if you were thirsty. I haven’t seen one of those wonderful services since.
As I sat there at a small table on the Starbuck’s patio, I happened to notice a small camping trailer driving by. It was really cute, shaped like a tear drop and probably no more than about 15 feet long. I probably should have done this image in color because it was mostly shiny aluminum with some very bright orange trim all around.
I sure would like to get up in the mountains for a week or two of camping, hiking, and fishing … oh, and photography of course!
Most of these images were taken with an Olympus OM-D E-M5 using either the 14-150mm zoom or the Panasonic Lumix 20mm f/1.7. The last one of the Advenir Apartments office was with a Sony Nex-6 and Sony 10-18mm f/4 zoom lens.
