Autumn Velocouture

Still sporting summer's cotton crop pants with her fall suede boots , this cycling lass is waiting for pedestrians to clear an intersection before she turns a corner in her downtown commuted home. The rain is just starting on this chill autumn evening. Two small cards adorn her front spokes, one has a great owl graphic advertising an event at Cal Anderson Park in Capitol Hill.

I guess it is boot time there too. It is here. LOL. Turkey day coming up here and I guess there as well. Nice shot.

Typical Seattle. A friend from California just asked me yesterday how come she still sees people in shorts when it is cold out. I responded that anytime the sun come out people put shorts on. So true. MB

Looks sensible for riding a bike. I love the colours in this photograph, the lights - the detail. Wonderful.

Love the urban feel of this shot, the details and color. It's vibrant.

Another cinnamon shot! Love the boots, by the way.

I love the way you framed this, and the soft evening light, and that glow on the bricks. Those boots are great, too -- very Seattle! (Paging all former grunge rockers...)

It's a matter of fashion. I remember seeing Shanghainese girls in shorts during winter but with high boots and hosiery!! It's better to be fashionable than warm for those girls. :o)

Though I know these boots are very "in" right now, it really bothers me how 80s they look. We left that decade (and its fashions) in the past for a REASON!!!
