Past and Present…the view from my handlebars 83 years later

These photos are a continuation of a series that I post now and again. I’ll find an old photo from somewhere in the city, print it out, and then try to recreate the picture. Sometimes this is easy, and other times it can be difficult because of the angle of the original shot. Yet otherContinue reading “Past and Present…the view from my handlebars 83 years later”

A Few Intersting Buildings I Saw While Riding Home Today…

One of the many things I enjoy about riding a bike, and one of the many things I enjoy about living in Buffalo, is being able to ride around and admire our incredible architectural history. And I was thinking just this today as I rode home. I had a camera with me so I snappedContinue reading “A Few Intersting Buildings I Saw While Riding Home Today…”

Things I Saw While Riding My Bike Today (a photo essay)

Firstly I have to say a couple things. Mainly an apology (if these pictures bore you). This is the most photos I’ve posted at one time. But sometimes I simply cannot help myself. I am proud of my beautiful city and it’s long history. Yes, I realize–to my friends “across the pond” who are readingContinue reading “Things I Saw While Riding My Bike Today (a photo essay)”

Past and Present…The View from My Handlebars (#2)

This is really a continuation of a previous post that is similar. I had the day off today and went for a bike ride downtown (on a cold, cold day I may add) armed with a couple cameras and prints of old photos. All of the original photos were taken–I believe–somewhere between 1895 and 1910.Continue reading “Past and Present…The View from My Handlebars (#2)”

Two Views from my Handlebars

The weather this past week has been–as far as I’m concerned–perfect. Idyllically autumn. Crisp, barely a breeze, or cloud in the sky. Also perfect weather to be on a bike. The above photo is a building I pass everyday, and as I coasted past this evening the sun hit it just right. This is alsoContinue reading “Two Views from my Handlebars”

Things That Can Be Carried on a Bike (#469)

A nylon bag containing–among other things–a laptop computer, an extra camera, a book, a journal, a small magazine, and two granola bars. Urban Simplicity.

A Cold and Snowy Ride on the Mundo…and a few things I saw and experienced.

This past week I’ve had off work (have to go back tomorrow…not looking forward to it) and because of the very cold weather that has returned I’ve been in a sort of hibernation mode and have only using bikes for very short rides (and have been using my truck more than I like). At anyContinue reading “A Cold and Snowy Ride on the Mundo…and a few things I saw and experienced.”

Sunday Morning Walk

Sometimes I find a walk is better than a bike ride. If you can see more on a bike than in a car you can see even more when you’re using just your feet. Anyhow, I went for a meditative Sunday walk this morning, and one of the things that I love to do whenContinue reading “Sunday Morning Walk”
