Macro Mondays: Transportation

Monday, June 18th, 2018

This week’s theme for the Flickr Macro Monday group is “Transportation.” From this week’s instructions (from Steve Crawford):

Transportation is the act of moving people or goods from one place to another. It is also the theme for this week. Things used for transportation are generally large so your macro photo will only show a small piece. This is a broad theme but there are a few restrictions. First, the theme is about physical transportation (people, goods), not radio, networks or other data-transport. Second, actual/usable transportation only – no models, toys or drawings of transportation-related objects. Finally, your photo’s connection to transportation must either be completely obvious from the photo or explained in the description or title.

From spark-plug to tail-lamp, automobiles alone are full of possibilities but so are other transport modes. Think bike gears, flight computers, transit cards, dock lines, rail signals and so on. I have created a gallery to get you started. Please be sure to adhere to the 75mm/3″ absolute maximum photo size and other Macro Mondays rules. Tag your photos #MacroMondays and #transportation. Most importantly, be creative and have fun.

Idle Wheel

Two summers ago, Dominic was obsessed with wanting to get a skateboard. He watched YouTube videos and assured us over and over again that he would actually ride it if he got one. (My kids have a tendency to want things to the point of obsession then lose interest once they have said item.) So my mom invested in a nice skateboard, helmet, pads, and other accessories and gave him a decked out board for his birthday. We should have known since he has some problems with his balance that riding a skateboard would be challenging. It was tried a few times then forgotten… and it’s been sitting in his closet ever since.
