Karma Wilson 11/26/2004 6:10:48 AM

Hey, cool! I like this shot. And a simplifier makes the dirt on the window look artistic. I'm always wanting to take pics out my window, but they are always dirty! LOL I'll remember this.

Wally Orlowsky 11/26/2004 6:28:25 AM

Great catch of a too common sight around here (even without any holidays), Murry. Do you think you should have blurred out that license plate?... you may have ruined the surprise (LOL). #938618

Joy Brown 11/26/2004 6:35:03 AM

Thanks Cathy, Karma, Char, Mike, Wally, Joy, Don and Bonnie! Same question my wife asked me Cathy! No I was stopped waiting for the light to change. Never thought about it Wally?? #938797

Amy N. Cappelli 11/26/2004 7:42:09 AM

It's only just begun! Great image and great reminder that the best gift is to be simple- stay home and make your own gifts out of twigs and dog hair :-)Holiday shopping, bahumbug- but those dazzling lights- tailights and headlights, that is, who can resist them? great shot! #938799

Murry Grigsby 11/26/2004 7:46:45 AM

Thanks Amy for your FUN comment! Maybe I should have name the photo "Christmas Lights"? :0) #938808

Darren K. Fisher 11/26/2004 7:53:25 AM

I am with Amy forget the shopping but then again I guess we will miss out on shots like this. Leave it to you to take traffic and make it a piece of art. Great use of effects Murry. #938818

Great shot, Murry!!!!!! #938933

William C. Raco 11/26/2004 10:21:50 AM

Out here in the country, we don't see this many cars anywhere but at a Penn State game.
Traffic jams here are ususally caused by farm tractors lumbering down the highway.
Still, I'll do my shopping over the internet, or make something out of all the dog hair ;-)
Happy Shopping, Murry!

Thanks Darren, Brenda, Robin, Donna, Bill, Susan, Carolyn, Debby, Karen and Len!
