Remember that field of yellow flowers I was looking for?
I finally found it.
I’ll let you into a secret, though: this isn’t actually a field. (And those aren’t actually “flowers”, either – but you knew that, right?) It’s a random piece of land next to a road. A very busy road. A road which was filled with commuters on their way home from work at the time these photos were taken: which is why my posing is even MORE awkward than usual here.
Actually, I was pretty impressed with the behaviour of the commuters on that road, to be perfectly honest. Normally when there are a lot of people driving by a photo location, I can guarantee I’ll get a few honks of the horn at the very least (Almost always from van drivers. WHY, van drivers: WHY? Why do you have to live up to that stereotype?!), maybe even a “GINGER!” or two, shouted through an open window, if I’m very unlucky.
Speaking of open car windows, though, that reminds me: a few weeks ago we were taking photos next to another busy road (Because sometimes that’s where the best flowers are, you know? The things I do for this blog…), and someone in a passing car slowed down to shout, “Looking good, Amber!” before driving off. And I have NO idea who it was. Now, you all know I can’t bear an unsolved mystery (Seriously, though, WHERE IS MY MEMORY CARD?!), so if you were that mystery passer-by, or if you know the mystery passer-by, please reveal yourself, and allow me to sleep soundly again at night, knowing that The Mystery of the Passing Car has finally been solved!
