Sunday Stills: Cars

This weeks challenge was Cars. Simple enough...

This morning on CA-99 near Bakersfield. You'll never see fewer cars than this on this stretch of road. Normally, its very busy, but I guess everyone was sleeping in.

Cars can be rolling down the road without physically touching the pavement. This is one type of trucking I wouldn't want to be involved in. I'd be too afraid of ruining a whole load of brand new vehicles. Guess you'd have to have some amazing liability insurance!
A different kind of car, rolling across the grasslands near Belle Fourche, SD.

That's it for me this week.

or not....I'm adding one! Another Car picture, only somethings not quite right here. Can you see it?
Just passed this guy on CA-99. The cars were trying to get his attention and Malcolm even gave him a holler on the CB. No luck. The driver of this truck is currently in front of us about to loose one of his cars. The chains are dragging the pavement and with each bounce in the road the pickup shifts more the left. And the driver is ignoring everyone. Hope no one is behind him when it goes.  We're exiting in 2 miles so it won't be us!

Excellent post Sarah. I sure hope that truck didn't fall on anyone.Sometimes when I'm following a big truck that looks loaded not quite right I wonder about getting smacked by whatever....you always think that would never happen but it does.I'm glad you were exciting soon.

Train cars, great take on the theme. Car carriers are a bit scary, they always look like one is about to give way.

Boy the things you see on the road. That was just plain scary. That's probably quite unique for sunday stills. . . a scary picture.

Fun to see your post - I've been missing you! I guess I miss the blow-by-blow of your travels!

Have a good week and call me sometime! :)

Great photos for this one, Sarah! Did the truck over come off of the trailer(the car hauler)?

oh my goodness. I'd be passing him in a hurry. Scary!!! I'm sure that could do some bad damage.
