Congrats on the wonderful camel photo!

I had way more transport images than I thought, though most did not have that keyword. I gave up after an hour of re-keywording (still a mess when I look at old images in the new system but this isn't the venue for commenting on that. So, I'm loving this challenge. My three (chosen by my daughter, after I narrowed the field. She's visiting from Ohio on her way to 3 1/2/ weeks in Spain & Italy):

Another one from Niantic Connecticut (where my family has a cottage). During the annual Fourth of July Parade, friends and neighbors help a classic car get going after it stalled. My husband is among them, though only the top of his head is on view on the far side of the car. It's funny how sometimes you get your favorite shots close to home.
