Erik Bang: the Bicycle Pro

Erik is, or at  least was, a the lead bicycle mechanic at Toledo Bikes. I took these years ago at University of Toledo when they were there doing tune ups for students.

I love the way this  picture turned out. The bike looks HUGE next to him. LOL!

A Dreary Day… my birthday…

Honestly,  this is my favorite weather.  

Here’s I am, the birthday girl, with a grey sky behind me.

The Verazanno Bridge… beautiful fog consuming the top.

And a beach in Atlantic City. ..

What a beautiful birthday. .. 😁

Oh, NYC… how I’ll miss you.

In about a month and a half my family and I will be leaving the Big Apple.  Thought I’d post some of my favorite shots of the boroughs…

A couple feature my husband 😊


Prospect Park

On these cold winter days I like to look back at steamy, sweaty, hot…. SUMMER photos! Here are a few I took at Prospect Park this past summer…

The boat house 

Yummy… algae…

Gooses and geeses at sunset… and, yes, I know that’s bad English.

Now for the name inspiration…
