A couple things I saw while riding my bike today…

 Well, I said I wouldn’t do any “work” today–Memorial Day–but I did. Worked in my garden, did some writing, stuff around the house, etc. So after dinner I was sort of driving myself a little nuts and thought I’d go for an evening bike ride. I of course snapped a few photos along the way.Continue reading “A couple things I saw while riding my bike today…”

A Photobomb and a Few Words…

I may have mentioned before, but for me at times photography is a form of stress relief and in some cases even therapy. There is something about looking through a lens and focusing on something–whether it is a full city scape or a close up of a leaf–that takes me inward and to a soothingContinue reading “A Photobomb and a Few Words…”

A couple things that I saw while walking this evening…

Despite the calm look of these photos it was quite wind this evening, and I shot these just before it started to rain. I had gone out for a walk as this was by far the warmest evening of the year thus far (66F).  I of course took a camera with me, and these areContinue reading “A couple things that I saw while walking this evening…”

Things that can be carried on a bike (#573), the view from my handlebars, and a brief comment…

 On the bike…groceries, sundries, dog food, a gym bag, and an order of moo shoo vegetables. So the weather was just beautiful today and this evening…40F which feels like a heat wave after the past few months. And I was particularly enjoying this sunset as I rode (and pulled of to the side of theContinue reading “Things that can be carried on a bike (#573), the view from my handlebars, and a brief comment…”

The view from my handlebars, a few thoughts on Ash Wednesday/Lent, and things to be thankful for…

So there I was anxious and rushing to get home from the community center on yet another single digit evening so I could make it to the opening time of an online class that began tonight, but then I had to stop for yet another traffic light (pictured above). Why, I thought, did I hitContinue reading “The view from my handlebars, a few thoughts on Ash Wednesday/Lent, and things to be thankful for…”

Things that can be carried on a bike (#470), and on another really cold and snowy evening…

A gym bag containing wet clothes, and $46 worth of groceries. Urban Simplicity.

Two views from my handlebars (in really cold and snowy weather)…

These were taken on two separate nights; the top photo last night and the one below tonight. The weather has been pretty much unchanged…bitterly cold and somewhat constant snow. But I am not complaining about this as I work in a kitchen and would actually take this weather over 90F and humid. There is somethingContinue reading “Two views from my handlebars (in really cold and snowy weather)…”

The View from My Front Porch…

What a lovely winter’s night this is. I had been sick on the couch for the past few days, and today was the first day I felt better, so I went for a long city winter walk. Beautiful. That’s a photo I took from my front porch just before I left for the walk. TheContinue reading “The View from My Front Porch…”

The View from My Handlebars on a Clear but Frigid Evening…

The corner of Allen and Elmwood on a very cold night. I was on my way home from the community center after a steam and swim. The air on my face was cold–really cold–and my fingers were freezing (I really need to get better gloves). I was feeling slightly stressed because of the self-inflicted nonsenseContinue reading “The View from My Handlebars on a Clear but Frigid Evening…”
