Had a nice hour and a half drive to a biz assignment this morning, just outside of Elkhart, Indiana and I was keeping an eye out for features along the way. I stopped three times, once at a honey farm, a horse track and a McDonald's.
At McDonald's, I saw a gentleman in a golf cart ordering in the drive through lane. I said to myself "Huh, never seen that before." Since it was lunch time, they were really busy, so I grabbed my camera out of the car and waited for him to get his order.
Of course, they didn't give him his food at the window, he had to pull forward and wait for them to bring it out. It's always something.
Even though there isn't that peak moment, I settled on this frame because it communicates that the golf cart is at the drive through.
