Photo-a-Day - October 2012 - Day 27: Vehicular

Photo-a-Day - October 2012 - Day 27:  Vehicular (Four in one)
The last time I drove home from Petaluma, there I was, driving alone in relatively heavy traffic on the section of 101 with only two lanes in each direction. 

I noticed this pickup hauling a wonderful classic car.  I desperately wanted a photo of it for today's prompt.  I also didn't want to kill myself or anyone else in the effort. 

The joy of digital cameras is you don't have to look at what your shooting.  However, you also have no idea what you're going to get. 

I was doing 65 MPH; cars in front, cars behind.  I had one chance so, camera strap on wrist, camera in right hand toward windshield, left hand on the wheel and eyes on the road - CLICK!

Imagine my surprise and delight when I realized I had captured not only a good bit of the car, but a motorcycle I hadn't even seen was there, the back of the truck and my dash all in one.  Best of all, no one was injured in the taking of this photograph.
