Missed a cracking shot today

Driving along (without the camera of course) when I came through a part of Cheltenham where they are tearing down council flats. These flats must be about 15 floors & one had 1 outside wall demolished from top to bottom leaving all the original interior rooms showing. It was great to see all the different colours schemes, plus 1 room had a cracking Harley Davidson sign painted about 12 foot across. Would have made a great shot Unfortunately it will be demolished by tomorrow

I know how you feel , I was driving into London a few weeks ago straight into a lovely sunrise . There was a footbridge over the road with somebody pushing a bicycle over it perfectly sillhouetted against the sky.

The worst bit was I did have my camera and the traffic did stop, but only after I passed the bridge

Was walking back to work after my lunch break the other day. A couple of minutes away I figured I'd put the camera back in the bag because there's never anything interesting on that bit of road and I don't really like all my colleagues looking at me funny, wondering why I'm walking around with a camera on my break.

Anyway... Camera goes back in the bag. I zip the bag up, look up and a kid on a bike's doing a wheelie down the street right past me as a group of construction workers look on from further up the road.

Well done Jamey.
