This may be the first time in BF history that someone used a dung heap as a backdrop!

That makes me happy to deal with the PNW rain, just to see green all year long....

Last saturday:

1. Public park.
2. Only accessible to this spot by bike path, or over a large grassy area.
3. The only rock in the park.
4. My Jeep could have driven over that with no problem.

Someone used a dead cow in the road as a bike stand backdrop once. And no I won't go searching for it.

Stopped at a park for lunch on Monday, next to a little airport. It's actually the site of the worlds first commercial flight, kind of neat.

A nice view of downtown on the other side

From this morning's commute

It was ten wheels, and I believe it was in the fifty plus forum.

What's really funny is that I recently lost my job here in the desert southwest, and I'm interviewing in San Jose next week, and this picture had me excited to potentially live someplace green!

A good strategy to induce rain, in my experience, is washing my car...

Thanks! I have a 365 project (one pic a day). My 'theme' of sorts is all pics must be taken with my phone, and no editing allowed. A lot of the shots I post here are also taken with my little point and shoot digital camera too though

Do you limit yourself to only one pic per day with your phone? Or is it at least one pic per day?

Yes, great photos Cobrabyte, keep em coming. I love those sunset shots. Reminds me of my '92 trip to Tampa/St. Pete/Palmetto/Sarasota.
Enjoyed the sights and beaches a lot...if I return, I want to ride over that harbor bridge!

I usually take multiple, keep the ones I like, and pick one for the 'official'
I'm glad y'all enjoy the photos
I really enjoy this thread it's become a photo journal of C&V of sorts

Did 22 miles tonight.

On the edge of town


Waitin' for the train




I got a light for my wife's bike. I took it for a shakedown cruise last night. It's a MiNewt Mini.150.


Me and my shadow.
