Nice night shots
I like the second one because the lighted area on the right is sharply focused/defined
Keep shooting Tex :lol:

Yesterday was a great day.

Rode to work for a early shift 6am start.

Bellowing Yellow parked at work.


It was a Perfect day out so on my break I rode two blocks to Peet's coffee for four perfect shots of espresso on ice.



It was such a nice day I decided after work I could ride to my son's football game in the suburbs 20 miles away in
Des Plaines IL.
Figured I could make it by halftime.

I Made it!

My son Taber #52 was excited to see me :mrgreen:


My other son Garret helped me take the bike to the van.

Give or take a mile or two I did a total of 30 miles yeasterday.

Not bad for a 6ft tall old guy on a bike two sizes to small
with a broken seat spring :roll: :wink:

Great pictures Skipton!!
The beach shots are awesome.
Love the structure shots and the painted wall too.
Sorry to hear about the broken spring
"Two sizes too small"? So you admit it! Aha! :lol:

Re: Skipton's Gallery and Random Photos (week in review)

I really enjoy riding around the city at night. I bet it's really neat there. Probably a little creepy at times too I suppose.
Always enjoy seeing the lake.
