Serendipity

Today I was fighting my way through the morning rush hour and I noticed this truck next to me transporting a beautiful tree. Somehow the truck and I managed to stay next to each other for several kilometers. There I was snaking my way through the urban jungle and yet I got to sit in the shade of this gorgeous tree for a few minutes. I snapped a photo of it just before I had to exit the highway.

BTW I know my friend Shubho will leave me a comment saying that I should have been on the subway, putting less stress on the environment, so that poor little tree wouldn't have to work so hard to clean the air back up for me. But Shubho I was driving the car that we won in that contest. What am I supposed to do, let it sit in the parking lot...? :)

Comments:

what a cool shot!! i would've done the same thing, though we probably endanger drivers and ourselves while taking on-road pictures...we won't talk about that though. :)

Hey, that looks like one of the trees that Mr Zander had pulled out of the MPK parking lot years ago to make room for the Cirque du Soleil tent which was erected!

I always wondered where those tress ended-up; now I know!

Taking pot shots at me - tsk tsk :)

Just a thought - can you recycle a whole car :)

Cirque de Soleil tents on campus! Those were the days, Rob. :)

Christin, I do worry that one day my husband will one day post something like "Melanie is in the hospital but she wanted me to post this cool picture of 15 donkeys in a pickup truck!"

You're just so predictable, Shubho. Yes, I'll give some thought to recyling the car. :)
