CDPBloggers' theme for May is shadows, so I'm showing you Fishnets at the Locks: Everyone gets an instant pair of fishnet stockings shadow-cast on them while crossing the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks at sunset. :-) Cutting through the locks is a popular route across the ship canal for cyclists between the Burke-Gilman trail and the bike route that leads to the Elliott Bay waterfront and downtown, but they must walk their bikes while on the premises or face a hefty fine. When you slow down to a walk it gives you a chance to notice the great blue heron that sits most evenings on a line spanning the ship canal, and you can see the silhouette of the evening BNSF train rumbling over the iconic Ballard railroad bridge. A slow mo portion to the commute, like slow food, can be really pleasant at the end of a long day at the end of a long week. Happy Friday everybody!
