A Solitary Walk (Playing with Angle and Light: Three Street Scenes)

I like to walk; it clears my head. When I'm on a bike I have to pay attention to my surroundings but when I walk I can do just that...walk. Tonight I had some thoughts that were troubling me so I thought I'd go for a brisk walk on this chilly (32F/0C) and wet February night...OK, I stopped at a local tavern for a couple beers also (that helps clear my head, too...or maybe it clouds it, whatever). Anyhow, and as usual, I brought a camera with me. I also had my small order to get clear pictures at night it's essential my hand doesn't shake. What's interesting is the angle at which these photos were taken...about 10 in./25cm. off the ground. The tripod I use I originally purchased to use on my bike, but tonight I was walking. It gives it an interesting perspective, I think. Anyhow, the walk was good...and the beers were better. As usual, click any photo for a larger view.

Urban Simplicity.
