    I agree with the implied sentiment. However, I also have a problem with car drivers that don't think bicycles have any place on the road. I was in the left turn lane (that's the right turn lane in those countries that drive on the "wrong" side of the road ), and this clown in the car behind me swings wide to try and blast around me (sorry, but I'm already pedaling as fast as I can, because I don't want to hold people up more than necessary, but by law, I am a vehicle, and I do have a right to use the left turn lane). He ends up swinging so far wide, that he conflicts with the oncoming left turn lane. They both get stuck in the intersection because this Bozo cannot take the extra few seconds to wait for me. I was laughing so hard I nearly fell off my bike. But, I did keep going and cleared the intersection. I only feel sorry for the poor sap trying to make a left turn from the other side. He didn't deserve to get held up by some jerk's road rage.

    haha, it's the west coast of florida, so that helps :P

    Do you expect photos from Australia to have us upside down?

    The halo around team radioshack is my dodgy post processing skills (I was temporarilly channelling old Rooz). I preferentially burnt in the house behind because it was too dominant. I should have done it more carefully.

    I'd always assumed that the camera's orientation sensor was able to sort that so we see your shots right-side up

    nice shot KIWI! like the colors and sharpness.

    this is a shot of LSU (where I graduated from college) from a few months back (D300 w/ 18-200).. i processed it in iPhoto just to see how it would turn out. i like iPhoto.. and i REALLY like my new 27" iMac.

    Nice one, K1W1!

    That's a nice shot, josef. I've never really used iPhoto. I keep meaning to use it just to organize pictures, but I can't break the habit of just keeping them in folders and managing them manually.
