Playing with light (or the light is playing with me…or the incredible view from my handlebars)…

A couple weeks ago I rode out to the tip of Bird Island Pier in the Niagara River during the daytime and during an unexpected fog (click here to see those photos). And tonight–being determined to teach myself all the manual controls of my DSLR camera–I rode back out as the sun set to snapContinue reading “Playing with light (or the light is playing with me…or the incredible view from my handlebars)…”

A few photos from a mini-excursion (or, a few things I saw while riding my bike today)

After I left work today, and wanting to enjoy the rest of this beautiful spring day, I rode my bike to Broderick Park and Bird Island Pier. The park itself is interesting because it played a somewhat major role in the underground railroad. Situated on the shore of the Niagara River where it meets LakeContinue reading “A few photos from a mini-excursion (or, a few things I saw while riding my bike today)”

A few of the things I saw while riding my bike and walking yesterday….

Yesterday was such a beautiful spring day, and it was one of those days where I had so much I wanted to accomplish that I became a bit overwhelmed and decided to go for a bike ride instead. Therapy. And you’ve probably figured out by now that I really love to explore my own city.Continue reading “A few of the things I saw while riding my bike and walking yesterday….”

A few things I saw while riding my bike today…

Well, Old Man Winter had one more blast last night…a few inches of the white stuff. I hope this is the last of it for the season. Six months of winter is enough. Anyhow, the day today was relatively warm (40F) and I had some errands to run. Here’s a few things I saw alongContinue reading “A few things I saw while riding my bike today…”

The View from My Handlebars and Things That can be Carried on a Bike (#578) and a few words…

I had to be at my job a bit earlier that usual today. I love the early morning, but my problem is I love the night too (and it’s difficult to enjoy both, I suppose). Anyhow, I took the above photo on my short ride to work this morning just as the light was beginningContinue reading “The View from My Handlebars and Things That can be Carried on a Bike (#578) and a few words…”
