Shakedown Commute

I saw this breath-taking view of the Moon and Venus last night.

Testing out digital zoom and manual exposure. This is the only shot I took that I was happy with.

Got caught up by a train this morning. This happens EVERY TIME I leave late. I love how you can see all three of the stop lights on carter through the ghostly gap between the engine and the last car of the train.

This kinetic sculpture is bolted to the parking garage next to the historic TWA Building

Oops. I'm such a troublemaker.

New tires roll great. I was happy to ditch the crappy rear tire I was limping around on. Chain doesn't like 1st gear now and the low adjustment screw is all the way out. I may try using a cassette spacer to see if that helps.

Random Tunage:
Ian Van Dahl - Will I (Lange Remix)
Hybrid - True To Form

That was on a tripod my grandfather made from old tubing, 2x4's and plexiglass. You can kind of see it in this photo. I should take a better photo of it. 1 second exposure.

Great shots, as usual. I particularly like the first one, and the train shot.

Man, those Axiom panniers sure look sweet. I like 'em.

The train shot is awesome. I wish I could do that!

Ummm, I believe that was Jupiter, not Venus. Venus would be visible right after sunset in the west, Jupiter is just past opposition and is visible all night.
