I ride the same route around the same time every day for my morning commute. I cross the harbor over the New Bedford/Fairhaven MA bridge to get to work close to the same time every day. The bridge has a set opening daily of on the hour between 6 and 9 AM. I cross around 8. ish.
I can get there sooner, or lollygag to get to the bridge later and not have to wait. However, I get some of my best photos while waiting. I dismount the bike of the day and look around to see what catches my fancy. Some photos are very good. Some not so much. Finding something not waterfront related is a challenge on the commute. That being said, I go with the flow and photo what’s presented to me.
