While I was attending a workshop in Missoula, MT a few weeks ago, I shot approximately 1200 photos. Some were for workshop related assignments and others were for my personal reasons, just capturing the essence of Missoula. Missoula is the most bicycle friendly town I have ever been in. Almost as many bicycles as cars and motorcycles and bike racks were in abundance along the sidewalks throughout the town. Rarely did I see much vehicle traffic, but while walking around town one evening I saw this scene and captured several shots as this motorcyclist was merging with traffic. This was probably the most traffic I had seen all week!
The sun had just set and the light was starting to diminish but I liked the row of automobile taillights and the green traffic lights proceeding down the street. The motorcyclist provided a point of focus and it just seems to capture a moment in time. It’s not a blockbuster photo with any great artistic merit, but I like it and keep returning to it. Sometimes that’s just enough, when you can say, “I just like this photo!”
