It's Moonday

A stunningly purty moment in the eastern sky just before dawn.

And you get it for only 40k! If want the BIG version, it is 753k and it is over on my zooomr page. Anyway, not bad for no tripod, braced on the truck roof. The other three I shot freehand were kind of blurry.

I eventually made it to work, not stopping to pick up the dime I noticed at the stop light just as it turned green for me.

After work I wandered around, in a bicycle-y sort of way. Saw this ham radio vertical antenna I never noticed before. You MAY have to scroll to the right a bit...

The antenna was centered in the original image, but so was a telephone pole. Composition, she is everything!

I half-heartedly checked out a couple of Geocaches, but still could not find them.

I came across this road repair zone on Baltimore, just as I had this morning. The satellite view (from Google Earth) shows the assumed path of the righteous pedestrian, and the image locations.

Street Repairs

Starting with Image 006, we are looking up the hill towards the road repair. We are directed to cross the street over four lanes of traffic. Sweet.

We gaze across the boulevard, we see... no sidewalk! Zounds!
And ze traffic! She is coming FAST!

I bike a bit farther up the hill in the bike lane. But the poor pedestrians must keep right, walking in the traffic lane against the tide of vehicles.

But back on MY side, the repair is nearly over. I see the End Detour sign ahead, and some fresh concrete. I take the lane, but the pedestrians have to cross back over the four lanes (plus bike lane) to get there.

And on the other side, I see a sign. I can't read it from here, but I think it says Sidewalk Closed, Use Other Side. Didn't we come in here?

I did not see any one obeying the signs. Scofflaw pedestrians!
