Orbs Go Round And Round

My contribution to Carmi's Thematic Photographic 314 - Round and round:

This truck failed to go round and round properly on this turn. So he needed me to hold up traffic so he could back up and try again.

And the orbs helped too!

P.S. ORB rocket explodes:

The Orbs give, and they taketh back:

LOS ANGELES (MarketWatch) -- An unmanned NASA rocket, the Antares, exploded Tuesday night just after lift-off at a launch facility at Wallops Island, Virginia. There were no injuries, NASA said on its live feed of the launch. Footage of the failure showed a large fireball erupt, with the Antares just barely off the ground. The rocket was developed by Orbital Sciences Corp. ORB, +2.91% shares of which fell more than 12% after hours, once news of the explosion broke. The Antares system had seen previous successful launches.

I'm not surprised that truck couldn't get round! That large a truck is really only made for straight roads!

Good shots of it, and hope they said thank you!

And Orbs go BOOM!

Were folks in traffic snarling and honking horns at you while the truck maneuvered?

Makes my light bulb orbs pale into insignificance. I was expecting to see orbs from you but not on this scale.

Super cool you could help, what a long trailer he had! I always like your show of orbs, but holly molly you really brought the house down with a very fun light show! Woohoo!

Last weekend, I was talking with a young lady who is a teacher in the Bronx. She told me that she took her students to the Edgar Allan Poe house and tried to photograph some orbs. It was all I could do to keep from bursting out in laughter.

Thanks, people!

Jim H., there were only a few cars at the time, and they could see they had no where to go. So it was all pretty calm. Good thing, since I wasn't wearing an orange safety vest or anything.
