On the bike…$47 in groceries and sundries, a large bag of dog food, a gym bag full of wet clothes, a camera, a camera tripod, and a bottle of red wine.

The following photos were shot throughout the day today and are in no particular order. I rode to church, then out for coffee, then to the community center for a steam and swim, then to the grocery store, then home. After dinner I walked to a tavern for a beer. It is possible to live in America without a car and function as a productive member of society (I’m just sayin’). Anyhow, as you likely know by now, I love taking photos as I ride my bike. I stop of course, and sometimes get off. But most of my photos are shot while on or next to one of my bikes. And yes, of course, this can be done in a car, but I suppose it would be a bit more cumbersome. There is nothing quite like being out in the elements (and in all seasons) to experience them, to be part of them. Anyhow, this is just one of the (many) reasons I choose to be car-free. I’ll get off my soapbox now. Click any photo for a larger view.
