    Autumn on my way to work. It only lasted for 2-3 days in this beauty.

        I don't own a car and this is one of the benefits!

              I went to a wedding this weekend and took this photo as I was leaving the church.

                  Great pictures everyone! Hopefully I can get to the home computer long enough to get something up to share as well.
                  Shawn, I love that last one :lol:

                      A bit on the morbid side, but took this one last evening. Think the poor little guy got a bit cocky with his "tight-rope" walking...

                          Hi Nindo,

                          The thing that struck me about this photo(after I got over my envy ) is how peaceful of a way start to your work day this must be for you. A while back I had chosen to skip the freeway, on my trek to work, in favor of the pace(and view!) of the side streets . Something just never sat well with getting out of bed early and driving 70mph at 5am. Everything wizzing by at such a blurying pace always just seemed to disturb my mental state. After giving up the freeway, I now have a pace which allows me to enjoy many wondrous sights along the way. Changing my drive from a commute to a journey.

                          Gassho,
                          John

                            Hi John,

                            good on you for getting off the freeway! Yesterday morning I returned a rental car during the morning rush hour, and seriously, I'm so glad I don't have to be stuck bumper to bumper every day...

                            Even when walking, peace or no peace is still up to your mind, though. Sometimes I'm present, sometimes I'm not. I need to cross a couple of larger roads and I do get into a rage occasionally when cars don't stop! The stretch through the forest can be one big sheet of ice in winter (you cannot see how sloped it is!), so it can be quite scary to slither down there. Once a week or so I pick up the garbage, and sometimes I get angry about all those carelessly tossed coffee cups and McD bags.
                            Biking is a whole different story - you need to be alert 100% all the time and do the thinking for some drivers. I used to bike a lot more than I did this summer, but found it too stressful :P
