    Two Mistakes and Four Images

    It started when I thought I had taken the little F60fd (my Fuji Experiement continues still) with me today but the little Lowepro bag it resides in identical to the one my GRD lives in, so I played the hand I was dealt.
    I stepped out of the office to this

    I went to the end of the walk to this

    Then I realized my second error, these shoes are not made for walkin!

    So after a brief stroll I sat and shot this


    GRD and Silkypix

    Lili,
    I like the 2nd, 3rd one is interesting too.
    On the second I like the writing on the kerb and the way the red snakes through the picture.
    all the best

    Paul, thank you
    Derek, one generally does not see the red curb thing, save in Frisco.
    I don't know if it is a City or Business Park thing. And thank you

    Maybe it works like it does in California -- legal to park at red curbs if a licensed driver remains in the vehicle, does not need to be in the driver's seat. Same for parking at fire hydrants. I think the idea is that someone can move the car if necessary. But, not legal to park at a red curb if it is a fire lane no matter who is in the car. I think it is ok to stop at a fire lane. So if red curbs are intended to mark a fire lane they must say so on them. Fire lanes can also be unpainted and marked by signage, and again, not legal to park there.

    'Parking' - happens when you turn the engine off. 'Stopping' - happens when the vehicles stops, but the engine is left running ... or something like that. There is a legal definition for each and laws for when you can do which one, when and where. Most of us don't know what they are so we just stay the hell away from anything painted red.

    It was glorious day here, very low 80s if that warm.
    Perfect for a walk, esp if one wears walkin boots

    Lovely walk, but the wildflowers had been mown down again
    But the landscapers left some lovely ones in the gardens

    The Drive home tonight was very nice, open window weather as opposed to hermetically sealed AC...

    Robert, thanks!
    North Dallas Tollway in this case. Oddly the other major toll road is called the George W Bush Turnpike.
    No Idea why the difference
