Title • Photo Friday: 2 by 4

Photo Friday is a little different this week:

Rules for the "2 by 4" Extra Challenge:
1) Keep yourself safe.
2) Start outside your location (could be your home, school, workplace - it's up to you).
3) Travel two units straight in one direction.
4) Turn to your right and travel 4 units.
5) Whereve you are, so long as you are safe, your mission is to creatively interpret your surroundings. Bring back and post photographic evidence to your website that you were actually there. Make the absolute best of whatever you find, no matter the subject or how mundane it might seem.

So, I left my house, walked two streets east, then fours streets south and ended up at a T-junction. I'd decided to take my 70-200 (on the basis that I'd have a longer reach if there wasn't anything interesting immediately in front of me) and vowed that I'd stand in much the same spot until I got a shot I was happy with. I came home with various pictures of leaves (all crap), some passing pedestrians (equally crap), some poorly focussed cars, buses and taxis (yes, you've guessed it), and this shot: which, all things considered, I'm happy with. And I'd be interested to see whether you can identify how it was done :-)
