ABC Wednesday - G is for Gum

G is for Gum............

gum stuck under a car tire

When we pulled into a parking spot at the shopping center, my eye caught this right away.
 For some strange reason it was drawn to tire of the car next to us.

And it had this piece of gum - stretched from the tar to the tire.

I am sure passers-by thought I was strange - squatted down with my camera under this car in a parking lot.

I thought I was strange too - it had to be my eyes that saw it, and I couldn't just let it go.

Years ago I wouldn't have done it - I cared too much about what others thought.

I am not at all concerned about that now - it's the getting up and down part for these low photos that I worry about these days.

But I am not going to let that stop me either.

This is the eighth round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.


  1. That is so true, taking photos from different angles is so much more important than what other people think.

  2. Yuck!
    that said, I'm pleased how much effort, and devil-may-care attitude, you bring to your art!
