Let’s celebrate freedom. It’s a holiday.

I woke up today, biked to work, and discovered I had the day off. Either no one told me, or I was simply oblivious to the holiday. I figure the latter. But that’s neither here nor there. What matters is that I was faced with a day off. What to do, what to do. Better yet, what not to do. At my disposal I had my bike and an already packed activity satchel (you know, for when I’m doing activities). So I hopped on my bike and rode to adventure. At first I had no direction. The way I figured, the day lay ahead of me in all directions. Everywhere is somewhere significant to someone. I couldn’t miss in this holistic hide-and-seek for my daily dose of significance. Notebook and camera ready, I found some.

Overheard in a coffee shop:
“You can tell these kids’ lives from the way they dress. That young man’s friends are probably all dope dealers and in jail.”

On the streets, I spy:

    hahaha, we totally talked about that last week. but that was on army man night, so it’s understandable that you have no recollection of it.

    Excellent use of a day off… and really you can’t let an already packed activity satchel just go to waste. I had yesterday off, but mainly ran errands. I made photos today for work, but nothing of too much excitement. I have tomorrow off, but the 100+ degree heat may keep me from exploring/wandering on the bike. We’ll see. Good stuff bro.

    Thanks for taking a look at my stuff! For the images, I use the site Gettyimages (http://www.gettyimages.com/) so I can be sure they are royalty-free. I just found lots of photos of flying machines and picked my favorites…
