Ordinary to extraordinary is a collection of freelance photography and a veritable cornucopia of random musings, made by Larry Wyatt.

Drive by Shooting

A hair salon.

A Purple Heart collection truck.

A building in a strip center.

More from the strip center.

A very large yacht.

I gave myself an assignment today. The assignment was to make photographs while driving around. The rules were that I could only take pictures from inside the vehicle. I could stop to take pictures, which for the protection of others is probably the best way to do this, so that's what I did. I did sneak in a couple of moving shots, but they were....well.....BAD! So they were quickly deleted.
