Road Work

Road Work, originally uploaded by susanvg.
Taken through my rain-streaked car window (I pulled over to get the shot). It's not easy to plot your route through the city. In our climate all roadwork has to be done after the ground thaws and before it freezes again. So we are often confronted with bright signs warning of work ahead. Highways, city streets both suffer from lane closures and detours. In the city our aging infrastructure needs replacement with streets torn up to replace water pipes. The freeze and thaw of the winter months also take their toll so roadwork is a constant. Oh well - might as well stop and enjoy the scenery.


  1. It doesn't look good for you traveling in that direction, Susan! I like the shot of the rain on your windshield and those bright warning signs.

  2. I like the in-between seasons when it's not too hot and not too cold and the world turns a different colour.

  3. I like the blur effect of the rain. Great fall and those orange cones and signs are something we're seeing a lot of these days.
