Photo Hunt #31: Space


IMG_0178, originally uploaded by M'roy.

It appears like every one of the parking space is taken here. Oh what I would give to be a bird and fly over and find the right car to receive my "droppings".

Taken from Yosemite NP. I was at Glacier Point looking down on the valley below and this parking area grabbed my attention. I couldn't really fix the lighting. It was a bright August day with the sun blaring and it was hot.

It's a very cool looking photo - almost looks like some kind of huge abstract painting hidden in the woods. LOL at the bird dropping wish.

Great take on "space" (I'm already loving this theme!).

I actually like the way the lighting worked. It made the cars look like they were part of a jigsaw puzzle with a lot of white space. Almost looks like a big heart in the middle of the green forest.

I have so many birds in my yard and they often leave their droppings on my car. I wish I could convince them that I'm the good guy since I provide so many over grown bushes for their shelter as well as nesting boxes and food.

This is just awesome for the theme. I too am loving it so far this week.

Everyone has such a different take on everything.

This is going to be a very interesting one indeed. To me the parking lot almost seems to form a heart.

Happy weekend,
Jackie:-)

Blur Mommy said...

That's a cool photo. Love that it was taken from above. I'm sure there are lots of visitors in Yosemite in the summer.

stan said...

I like the perspective. And the fact the parking lot is surrounded by the wonderous spacious nature reflects how she triumphs over our efforts to invade her space. haha.

Expat Traveler said...

Randi said...

I agree - the carpark looks like a heart.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Impressive shot, love the surroundings :)

Alice Audrey said...

Not to mention the way they cleared a spae in the trees for the cars.

bingskee said...

a good perspective. didn't thought that in the middle of that denseness there will be a parking area. :-)

Marites said...

that's really cool pic! and the cars look like puzzle..imagine having a parking lot in the midst of the forest.

paoruiz said...

hahah this is sooooo nice. =)

witsandnuts said...

Very pretty. Not everyday you'll get a chance to take snaps like this. I wonder if I'll ever have that shot here in UAE. Basically, not so many trees are around.
