This was one of those days where I took over 1,000 photos, to end up with maybe just a dozen usable shots – the car is pretty crisp, but the background is blurry to suggest motion.

Got run over while crossing the street,
Spent the next year in traction,
To his wife’s satisfaction,
As she found life without him complete.
