I like some elbow room when I park. It amuses me to watch drivers circling around like gulping goldfish waiting for that pellet to hit the water. Or for a parking spot near the door to open up. I realize that for a few it's necessary to park close. If more people would park and walk they'd find their physical health would improve. Then they wouldn't feel the need to park so close. Life outside the goldfish bowl is pretty awesome.
Interestingly, most of the time I'm entering the store while the goldfish are still circling.
In this case there was plenty of elbow room. Trying to decide which spot to use was killing me, though. I wonder how long it will be before this space in front of a government building will be full again?
Parked beside another river but a bit farther away from the water. Don't worry about the green pole sticking up. I'm experimenting with a new camera mount. It works out okay as long as I keep my lean angles very shallow.
It's just a snapshot. All the photos except this one were taken the same day. I threw in this one just because I wanted to. Elvira cleans up pretty well. A beautiful bike in a beautiful setting along the river. I like the way she's framed by the trees.
