Drive-By Shooting

I'm dog-sitting this week for my Jewish family who lives on a secluded mountaintop. While this location is mildly creepy, especially with only a big dumb black lab to provide protection, it also provides plentiful opportunities for deer spottings. This morning as I was headed down the driveway, I spotted three deer enjoying a morning nosh of...grass, I guess. Anyway, I stopped the car, dug out my phone and snapped a couple of pictures. Even though they look far away due to me not being able to figure out how to work the zoom feature on my camera phone, they were only like 20 feet from my car.





I am not a photo nazi at all, so I'm not sure what got into me, but as I continued my descent, I left my camera phone lying on the passenger seat ready to go. And as I drove the 10 miles to work, I randomly snapped some pics from behind the wheel. Which is much trickier than it sounds, trust me.



This is one of the horse pastures I go by every morning on my way to work. I like that the view in the side mirror is so crisp.

The next two pictures are two of the gazillion churches located on my route. And yes, they are all THAT enormous!





The last semi-succesful drive-by photo was supposed to be of the recently blossomed trees that are sort of visible in the upper left portion.



While I'm pretty sure it was probably not one of my bightest ideas to drive and take photos at the same time, it did make my morning commute far more interesting than it usually is.

good golly the churches are bigger than our hospitals here. probably not the smartest,not to mention, the safest thing to take pictures while driving.
