I take most of these pictures while riding my bicycle around San Francisco. I hope you will enjoy viewing them.

It can happen at any time
Fall off your high horse
Inexplicable blur to amuse the two-faced man
Doors, Windows, and Sky
The Heavy Consquences of Gas Price Increases
Heavy Metal Must Roll On . . .
It's all a blur . . .
. . . yet so clear.
We finally seem to be past the rain and rain and rain.Which means the wildflower revolution can not be far behind.A preponderance of purples, and poppies, peppering the hills in the area. And speaking of revolutionHow wonderful that the world is routing itself together through digital communicationLike the mycelium of a fungal colony.I like to think that once the heart floral gunpowderIgnites in the hearts of the populaceThe contagion of awakeness will move through the land like a wildfire.
The culture of surveillanceMay just watch itself turn on.
After you see the light,
Happy Night / Day.
Today is the 100th anniversary of the Great San Francisco Earthquake of 1906.
Here are some pictures of a different type of rumbler:
Grouchy Bus Mods.
This bus is way more entertaining than the one I used to ride to school.
Go trucks, go. Deliver those packages.
Hello street standing waver person. Have a nice day.
Sunrise or sunset?
Nice cloud patterns.Sunset or sunrise?
Realistic cloud cover.
Hot and Cold.

Busses and dogs.
World as practice.
I was stopped at a traffic light with this freestyle bicyclist.
After watching him bust mad air off of the curbs,
I readied my camera at the next stop light,
resulting in the following series:
Stalling the bike by applying the hand brakes:
Torquing the handlebars while applying pressure to the pedals.
A perfect landing.
Cell phone calls continue.
Birds sing to the setting sun.
Hard, yet soft.
This steel post traces a soft path around a utility pole.
Seemingly static, yet not immune to the forces
of time and change. As Neil Young said,
"Rust Never Sleeps."
Into the clear.
After record March rains *(see below) in the Bay Area,*San Francisco had 25 days of rain in March, breaking the previous record of 23 days set in 1904. Oakland, San Rafael and Santa Rosa also broke rain related records in March.
are we finally looking out of the rain box
and into the season of dry?
April fools rush in . . .
These are the April Fools.
They send you their best.
