Two (contrasting) Views from My Handlebars...

What a difference a few hours can make. The above photo is looking skyward to beautiful clear skies, and the below is earthbound in torrential rain. The top photo I took this morning on my way to work. I was about to enter another busy day and stopped for a moment and straddled my bike to take a few deep breathes while looking skyward. And this evening, on my way home from the gym, I got caught in a heavy downpour. It was one of those rains where rather than trying to duck out of it (I was on a bike after all) it is easier to simply surrender to it. And at one point I stopped to snap a couple photos of the reflections of color in the wet street.

Urban Simplicity.
