Sunsets, bikes, & Pranksters

I snapped a photo of this dapper looking art student ridding on the side walk while I was en route to the bike shop. I think it came out quite nicely. And hopefully he saw me ridding down the middle of the road and it will inspire him to do the same. Drivers are never going to take cyclist seriously if we ride on the side walk, especially in areas with low speed limits like the center of town in Laguna where this was shot. If the speed limit is 15 I ride right down the center of the lane, that way cars can't swerve around me.

I ran into this character while at the bike shop, I asked him if I could get a photo of the drawing he was carrying around. He then handed it to me, and as I was holding it in my hand informed me that it was made from acid sheets. The rest of the afternoon felt a little bit fuzzy.
