PhotoPhun Challenge: Out Of Town

This week’s PhotoPhun Challenge was to shoot some pics “Out of Town,” specifically, outside of Lorain. While I had a grand plan to hit certain cities around Lorain, life managed to get in the way. I was only able to get to two communities of the list I had made for myself.

I got the first one on the way home from work one morning this past week.

  1. No great road trips for me this week. Hot and muggy means busy week for me.(at least I have lost my winter weight) I am REALLY looking forward to my vacations coming up soon.

  2. Nice pics, Mark!
    Last night, 9-ish, I saw 2 girls walking with traffic down Lake Road, one pushing a stroller barely within the lines, the other carrying her baby. This has got to stop. If it were a little darker, they would have been practically invisible. I thought that lane was solely a bike lane, not a ‘people in general’ lane.
