6-24-11 Street Scene

Seattle

Why do we take the pictures we do? I have really no idea why I took this, shabby fire hydrant and poppies, gang tagging on the hydrant to boot.

Rode my bike into work today with the ground very wet. I did not get rained on but wet streets are not my idea of fun riding. Each turn of the pedals seems harder than it should be and braking takes longer than you think it's going to.

Had lunch out with a new employee doing her orientation today. The sun was shining beautifully at lunch time. At about 4:00 as I was thinking of heading home again I looked up at the sky and was seriously a bit frightened. These rolling gray clouds looked like they were going to open up at any moment. So I hitched a ride home with a co-worker who always has a bike rack on her car and lives not too far from me. The rain never actually started, but I wasn't really in the mood for a bike ride home anyway.

Missed the boys by a couple of minutes so a nice quiet evening to myself.

like the colors (believe it or not, I'm growing to sort of like orange) - neat composition!
