business as usual

This road is thirty-six feet wide. Large enough for three or four vehicle travel lanes.
There is a overhead utilities crew working up the street.
They provide notice to oncoming vehicles, locating their sign where the walkers and wheelchairs go.
Business as usual.

I stumbled off the track to success in 1968, started chasing shadows that summer. Since then, In addition to farm-laborer and newspaper photographer my occupational incarnations include dishwasher, janitor, retail photo clerk, plumber, HVAC repairman, auto mechanic, CAT scan technologist, computer worker and politico (whatever it takes to buy a camera.) I am on the road to understanding black and white photography.

One thought on “business as usual”

  1. Bill, Looks like much the same of what was happening throughout the day (07-26-14)upon Cleveland Ave. Saturday and overtime go together. Anyway… rather than bicycle infrastructure or ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) adversely affected in your shots, it was more about part of the tree canopy (on this side of town) collapsing and the CAT. Why does there always seem to be so much fuss among folks with what’s rightly or improperly deemed “Business as Usual?”

    Now granted, the sign in your top pic could’ve been placed within on street parking or (attempt at facetious humor here) on the double line in the middle of the road. Better yet, close the entire street. Wait, that’s what they did in my neighborhood (and your other photo in this post) and the Route 4 Bus through Fry’s Spring was affected.

    My goodness, hate to think of what’s going to go down, when the big EMP (electromagnetic pulse) strikes. That surely is liable to be harder on the younger generations than perhaps the seasoned citizens. Think of all that incapacitated technological advancement and electronic equipment. Of course, it might wind up instead as a day humanity’s carbon footprint was frozen in infamy.

    Can you imagine the ensuing chaos and mayhem, were the city to ever be serious about burying all citywide utility lines?
