It's been a while since I posted a drive by and while I typically loathe loading a blog post with may photos I've decided to do just that so I can provide you, dear reader, with a catching-up of my favorite shots from January and February in one package.

The above was shot in front of what is becoming my favorite background, the US District Court (Historic Frank Moss Courthouse) on my favorite stretch of road, the northernmost section of Main St.

Here's another against the courthouse:

Another stretch of road of which I'm fond is State St (US 89) between 100 S and South Temple as there's a nice uphill grade in addition to some great background elements. For example:

Auntie Social.

Making a U-turn and heading back down State St and then west on 100 S I capture these two fellows against some plain yet interesting backdrops:



It may be hard to tel by these smaller sizes but the bloke above caught me at work and is staring into the camera.

Alas my true love is with Main St, for both the myriad of backdrops and people...from deconstructed piles of rubbish to glistening, glass-covered structures...from the dusty construction worker to the polished officer worker:

You can view the whole, ongoing collection of these over at my "Drive-By Shootings" street photography series on Flickr.

About time! Geez! These are great Michael, the blue bench one is my favorite I think. If I trick out your sedan with tinted windows,dubs and some subs will you do more drive bys?

Mike, we should roll and shoot sometime, taking turns at the wheel and at the volume control.

Erin, thanks, she was such a fortune on a rare, windy SLC day!
