MSN Money used two photos for a December 1, 2017 article entitled "32 Most Dangerous (and Safest) Cities for Cycling" by Thomas C. Frohlich.  The photo below on the left is titled My Bike and is, well... my bike, it's standing out on an observation deck on the Silver Strand just south of Coronado, California. This was taken while bike riding in to Coronado after stopping for a break.  While walking back to the bike as it stood I thought, "hmmm, that looks cool." The photo below on the right is Oregon Street and it's traffic on the interstate taken from an overpass in downtown El Paso, Texas.

A friend and I were driving around the coast just north of Green Bay, Wisconsin and found a trail to better view the lighthouse at Sturgeon Bay.  This light is actually part of the US Coast Guard Station in the canal and not actually on the lake.  While the photo is called Hidden Light, it's actually only hidden from where this photo was taken.  Thanks to:

I'm very surprised at how this photo has been used and gotten around!  It was taken one morning while walking around Coronado, CA, a pretty typical day actually when I lived there. The lesson learned was this, you can cover more ground in a car and sometimes that's useful. However, if you're looking to shoot every day subjects, you have to get out on foot because this shot would never have happened while driving...  A huge thanks for these folks:

This was one of those photos that I took and said, "I hope I got it."  Taken during summer in Coronado, CA and while bike riding, there were these folks on the beach.  I took it hoping to catch that seagull diving, it was hopefully going to put a little subtle action in a peaceful photo.  Thanks to BeachVacationers.com for using this photo in the "Top 7 White-Sand Beaches in the US" where this beach came in fourth"!
