I’ve mentioned it before but I have to say it again, taking photos for me is like a form of therapy or meditation. I love focusing on something and trying to capture what I see with the camera. With that said, these are a bunch of photos I took this past weekend while riding my bike. It was Labor Day weekend in both the U.S. and Canada–and I was really trying to enjoy the last official weekend of the summer–so on Saturday I rode up to Crystal Beach for a swim, stopping on the Peace Bridge to snap a photo of the Niagara river while I had one foot in Canada and the other in the U.S. I also spent the evening last night at Canalside here in Buffalo. And interestingly, in both Canada and the U.S. I saw off-shore rainstorms (one of which I got caught in later)…they were beautiful. And lastly, if you are not familiar with her, Shark-Girl is a somewhat new art piece on the waterfront in Buffalo. I saw her for the first time yesterday and I’m not sure how I feel about her. Anyhow, click any photo for a slightly larger view.
