FMTSO: Rush Hour Traffic

CIMG7860-001

Usually, the rush hours in town is something I try to avoid!

The busses are usually very full that time of day too.

If I walk, I try to choose the side-streets if I can.

When walking home from town, there are only a few places where I have to cross more heavily trafficated* streets.

* Ooops - I'm guilty of "Swenglish" here, it seems :) ... We have the word "trafikera" in Swedish...

In the summer there is sometimes a more fun kind of rush hour traffic, as on certain occasions special vehicles gather in the town square (which is usually forbidden area for traffic).

… Like mini cars …

  1. AHHH! The colorful-car-shots that I was looking for! These are elegant shots of a topic that is kinda difficult. Nice.

  2. I love the beautifully lit trees, the cars, and the blue buses! I wish I could walk with you through the town! I know I would be oohing and ahhing! And did you invent a new word... Trafficated? LOVE it! The big building with the moss on it is very cool, too!

    1. Ooops - I'm guilty of "Swenglish" here, it seems :) ... I was so convinced that "trafficated" was an accepted word in English that I did not even think of looking it up... We have the word "trafikera" in Swedish...

    1. I try to participate in FMTSO most weeks, Mersad. Occasionally I skip a week here and there if I'm busy or can't find any recent photos to match the theme.

  5. I don't know why I don't comment more frequently on this blog. Somehow, I think I'd always be saying the same thing. I do enjoy it though.

    1. Always nice to know that people are visiting, Graham. I do recognize the feeling though - not always easy to always come up with a comment though. For my own part, I've given up trying to comment from my phone, since the time I managed to put in eleven identical comments on a post of yours (while thinking none of them went through)! LOL So now either I go back to comment later, from the computer - or I let it be... :)

  6. We don't have too many minis around here. The big SUV's and hatch backs for Moms in the suburbs are more popular -- but such gas-guzzlers.

  7. Love the minis. I got my drivers license drivng a mini. Would be flat out getting in and out of one these days. Couldn't possibly pick a favourite amongst these!

  10. love the Swenglish..... nothing like make a word to fit the moment. I also love the minis. great shot with all the colors. I, of course, love the bikes... my grandson was given a Harley by his dad, so for Christmas I went my the Harley dealership to look at accessories. I ask my daughter did she think it would change me if I bought myself a Harley.... she lifts her left eyebrow, like only she can do, and says you'd have to take riding lessons first..... I don't know why I have to ride the bike, why can't I just have one in my garage..... I could go out everyday and just sit on it.... I would be so HAPPY! ....
