Kind of a crazy night

Photo: A pic I snapped on my way back to downtown. It's an accurate representation of my state of mind at the time, too.

I got to JCCC and then realized that I did not have my wallet. There were only a few places it could be, and "locked in my desk at work" was one of the top candidates. I stole the wife's Explorer and headed to the office.

Fortunately, it was there in my desk. I took the opportunity to swing by Liberty Memorial and shoot some photos. I swear it's not leaning, I just didn't get the camera level.

The second picture you posted is a magnificent piece of arcitecture.

You must have been going nuts till you found your wallet. I know the feeling well, from experience.

I tried to correct spelling errors by deleting the post.

No worries - I got rid of your old deleted posts.

What's funny is I got run out of the Liberty Memorial park.

I rode my bike to get closer to the tower, and hopped up on a ledge to get the angle. Those exposures are pretty long (okay, 8-15 seconds) and so I had to sit there, perfectly still while they exposed.

I had just hopped down off the ledge, and a Rent-A-Cop (female) approaches me:
"Stay where you are, don't move!"

Me: "Okay..."

Cop: "Bikes aren't allowed on the property, there are signs back there. And we don't allow people to just climb on stuff."

Me: "Well, if there were LIGHTS 'back there' maybe I could read the signs. I must have missed them. Sorry about climbing on the ledge, I was just trying to get a good picture."

Cop (in a ranting tone that I didn't want to listen to): "well you can't just..."

Me (interrupting, hopping on my bike): "I'm just an artist. I won't pester you any further."

Cop: "Come back here"

Whatever. What's funny is I'm not an artist. But that's okay. I'm sure "I'm just a hacker." or "I'm just a Lead Systems Programmer" or "F you!" would have bought me less time to escape.

She is probably still telling her coworkers what she "should" have done to you.

She may have thought you were a bad guy in your winter get up.

Unless you had your helmet on. (The small blue one that chipcom commented on).[/joke]
