Img_1027Spring has finally arrived in Buffalo. One of the perks of living in such a harsh climate is that when it finally warms up everyone in town is in a good mood on the exact same day. It feels a bit like a miracle to step outside on a day like today. Everyone is smiling, including the dogs and the babies. I wandered up and down Elmwood taking pictures of strangers without their permission, and most people just smiled at me patiently. I also took my bike out for a spin. I love my bike. It is called “The Free Spirit”, it says so right on the side.

I live about a block away from a private girls high school. At about three o’clock the streets are teeming with kids. On my way home from my bike ride I spotted a group of about ten teenage girls jogging towards me. They must have been a track team or something. They looked so sweet jogging and laughing with their ponytails swinging. I tried to take a picture of them as they jogged by, but they got distracted by my camera. The next thing I knew I was taking posed group shots of them. One of the girls asked if they were going to be in the Buffalo News. I told them “yes” just to hear them whoop.

    I was wondering if that sweet bike was yours. I love it! Is it a lazy-boy bike (as Kathleen says)?
