Traveling for the work on live sports broadcasts ain’t what many think it might be. This little story will use 4 photos that give a taste to some of life on the road…AKA First World Problems.
For a “street/of the moment” photographer signs can be a good “go to” subject. It can be the surroundings, the shape, the juxtaposition or sometimes the content. For me signs can force a vertical perspective. They also sometimes carry a significant weight to storytelling. A perk of traveling is that you get a new pisser every week.
I will be very glad not to have to deal with the numerous security inspections on my way to & from work every day. A perk of retirement. Yes I know they are doing their job! Do we really need security to be full of consistent inconsistencies with often a lack of common courtesy? Isn’t it bad enough without the common ignorance of the public? Wake-up folks!!! Work that begins with a security check can make for long and frustrating days.
I know their are people in this world that would love to have a safe clean place to stay. And I also know that their are worse hotels than where I was normally put up at. But, hotel hallways are monotonous & without interest. They are not the way I like to begin & end my day in the world. And don’t even get me started on the carpet!
I will end this short story with a positive. The approach of Spring from 4F. The flight to & from CLT is a glorious reveal of the spectacular seasonal transitions. Upgrades and frequent flyer miles are nice but the best perk of traveling is a springtime final approach with great lighting coming back to PIT. Sometimes life is like that!
