Full to the Limit is part of my traffic series on traffic jams and ways to manage traffic. No matter where you travel you will encounter some method to deal with traffic. Although the type of traffic is sometimes surprising, what surprised me more was that despite the method of travel there appear to always be traffic jams.

In Full to the Limit the canals in Amsterdam are the subject. Here you can see a slight bottle neck occurs at a set of locks. In fact I recall when I was photographing the scene that several near accidents seemed a moment away, but none occurred that day. 

Although it will take a little hunting to find the cars parked along this canal, we heard that a fairly common accident on the canals was not with the boats, but instead cars getting too close to the edge and toppling into the canal. The adventures of travel.

SOLD through HorseSpirit Arts Gallery

I know I really have a thing about bicycles. I find the shapes of bikes fascinating to look at. Although no cyclists are here in this stand of parked bicycles, the sense of speed portrayed by riding cyclists also fascinates me.  So for my cyclist fans out there, I present Plant Your Bike Here. I can't imagine a more beautiful place to park and walk around town than this little spot in Bruges, Belgium.  Although inspired by my trip to Bruges this scene could be nearly anywhere.
