A tiny shed

As I was driving along the highway today, I saw this curious little shed by the side of the highway.  I had to stop and take a peek, so I pulled off real quick and grabbed a few shots.  The base is solid block and well constructed, and it goes partially underground, but the dilapidated roof caught my eye.  What also caught my eye was its size…the peak of the roof was just about even with the top of my head.  Curious.

Shots like these are why I bring my camera almost everywhere with me.  It’s often difficult to find time to go out and shoot, especially during the work week.  Usually, by the time I leave work, it’s too late to go take pictures as I need to get home to have dinner with my family.  Lunchtime is often no good due to the difficulty in getting anywhere interesting and the fact that the light is terrible at noon.  As a result, I always try and keep an eye out for interesting things as I drive about….a quick two minute stop can sometimes yield a decent photograph.
