The view from my handlebars, a random kitchen photo, and a brief comment…

I just wanted to mention that I will be away from away computer for the next four days or so…likely will not post again until Tuesday. Thanks as always  for sticking with me, hopefully you’ll visit in a few days. Until then, peace. Urban Simplicity.

Something I saw while riding my bike today…

 So I was on my way home today when I stopped at a traffic light and was waiting. It was a really nice day out (unlike what is heading our way). Anyhow, as I was waiting I was sort of zoned out when in the back of my head I noticed all these chirping sounds.Continue reading “Something I saw while riding my bike today…”

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…”

The view from my handlebars on a really frigid and snowy night on my short commute home and a few things I saw along the way…

Another view from my handlebars…

This was the view before me on my very short commute to work this morning. Incredible, right? Magnificent. I was so glad and thankful to be on a bike for this. To be in the open and feel the cold air on my face…for my body to be chilled a little; to see this firstContinue reading “Another view from my handlebars…”

Things That can be Carried on a Bike (#544) and a view from my handlebars on a crisp autumn night

On the bike…A gym bag containing wet clothes. A large plastic box containing groceries, sundries, and red wine. Sixteen 2x4s. The view…From Elmwood Avenue looking towards Buffalo’s West Side at sunset. Urban Simplicity.

The View from My Handlebars…

I had to be at work a little early this morning. It was cold–the first really cold morning of the year–probably about 30F, and not a breeze in the air. It felt good; crisp. And then as I rounded the corner and faced east this was the view in front of me as the sunContinue reading “The View from My Handlebars…”

The View from My Handlebars (on the first really chilly evening of the season)

I had stopped out for a few drinks with a friend after work this evening. And afterwards was hesitant to run some intended errands, not only because of the beer consumption but mostly because of being ill prepared in dress for the chilly weather. Anyhow, I am really glad I did (as I usually amContinue reading “The View from My Handlebars (on the first really chilly evening of the season)”

A few views from my handlebars…

 Another incredibly beautiful evening to be on a bike. It was crazy busy today at work facing the stove so it felt especially good to be out in the open air. These photos are in chronological order from top to bottom; I shot them about 15 minutes apart. The above one is facing east andContinue reading “A few views from my handlebars…”

Things That can be Carried on a Bike (#525)…and a few things I saw along the way

On the bike…a cardboard box containing other boxes full of food on their way to a local food pantry. A few things I saw along the way…the Bubble Man of Allen Street doing his thing, a random door covered in graffiti, and a truly incredible autumn sky. Urban Simplicity.

Morning and Evening…the view from my handlebars and front porch

It’s incredible to think that these two photos were taken a mere 11 hours apart and on the same day. It was/is a beautiful autumn day. The above photo was taken on my very short commute to work at about 8am and the below photo was taken from my front porch about 7pm. I justContinue reading “Morning and Evening…the view from my handlebars and front porch”
