Beginning today, I'll be posting a random photo of bikes I see while on the road or in the community...just for fun.
Since I keep running into them everywhere, and the photo in yesterday's post inspired me to do something more with these opportunities that keep showing up, I decided that's what I'd do. It's a little serendipity I could not ignore.
You'll see the first of the random photos below my profile on the left. My friend, Beque Allen, took the photo last night at the end of the Arizona Press Club Awards Banquet where winners for the 2008 contest were announced. We were talking to the security guard on the way out of the Walter Cronkite J-school (where the banquet took place), and I saw the police bike just standing there all by itself in front of his desk. So I asked the officer if I could borrow it. Before he could say no, I stood behind it, and Beque snapped a few shots with the camera on her phone and e-mailed me this one right away.
She's taken a few others for me that I'll be posting from time to time. I'd love to be able to post new ones regularly. If you're out and about and see a random bike, especially if it's in an unsual location, I'd love it if you sent me a copy. You can e-mail it to me: jackiedishner AT msn dot com.
If you're willing to see them, random repeat moments like these make life a little more interesting. Interesting fuels the passion, and passion, of course, is something that keeps you moving forward.
Is there some kind of serendipity you've noticed going on in your life lately? If so, post your comments here.
