NaHaiWriMo prompt - bump

Finally, a bit of winter has arrived in Southern California, hurried cars, auto wars, frustrated drivers forgetting the trickery, the slickery of roads, all going home at the same time, the same pace, the same rat race, fighting the sleep in a heap of wet smog, dodging a Beemer who wants to be first, is the worst, all getting there in due time, eventually, but with this rhyme we are all the same, as we drive home together in the rain.

first rain
bumper to bumper
all the way home

Brilliant picture! Such an ordinary, dull, everyday motive, and you create the perfect composition. A study in the golden ratio. All the lines that cross at the car at the left, making it the center of attention. At the same time, the weight of the picture is on the right side. The individual vs. the collective? Great use of color.
