Weekly Photo – Traffic

One of the things I would like to work on in 2017 is my photography. I am joining in for my fifth week with Nana Cathy and Wild Daffodil‘s weekly photo challenge.

This week’s one word prompt is Traffic.


I have taken each of my other weekly photos so far without leaving the village but there is not much in the way of traffic around here and so I took a short trip into Tadcaster.

This solitary car and pair of pedestrians may not look like a lot of traffic but it is very exciting traffic.

Due to damage caused by flooding and high river levels in December 2015 the bridge in the foreground, across the River Wharfe, collapsed and has been closed for the last year.  The bridge reconstruction work is now complete and the bridge reopened to traffic just 2 weeks ago.

So on Saturday I drove to Tadcaster, and across the bridge, and set out to photograph the traffic, all the while thinking how lovely it is to see people able to drive from one side to the other of a town which has been divided by a river for over a year.
