28 Encounters I Had On Friday’s Bike Commute To Work

I’m having a lot of fun culling stills from my sunglassescam, heavily fauxtifying them and then lobbing them up onto the internest in the form of a Flickr set.

People in automobiles sitting inside their vehicles and traveling up or down whatever street or freeway might pass thousands more people sitting in their vehicles than I pass on my bike, but I’ll call any of them liars who say they experience a greater connection to their city or the people they share the roadways with than I do from the saddle.

Hi-ho 8Ball — away!

Here’s the set of the above thumbnails.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with laonstage.com, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
