Things held sacred
You other photographers know exactly how this works: you’re driving along and see something (let’s say a wooden cross mounted on a fence in front of an abandoned house, to pick something at random), and you drive right by. Then, maybe a mile or two down the road, you start to think that maybe you should have stopped to photograph it. But you drive on for maybe another mile before you convince yourself that you need to get that shot. And then it takes a minute or two to get to a place where you can turn around, and then maybe you have to drive past it a little ways to find a place to make that second turn-around. And then, there you are. With the cross, just like you spotted it from the car, nicely framed between two different-height fence posts.
Just a normal-ish drive, right?
