Photo by myself on the subway.
A fine illustration of a lion's head was on the underside of a skateboard. I saw this Thursday morning, on the way to work.
You'd think that commuting via skateboard would be the best thing ever in the city. You're free of the crowded sidewalks, and carry the board around easily.
But the percentage of skateboarders is surprisingly low. Most people hoof it to and from the subway. A small group bike to work, some live close enough to the office to walk, and a very, very lucky few take cabs. Or they don't work at all.
By the way, the Times wrote recently that many pedestrians and cyclists are hit by cars when they are using crosswalks, and when they have the right of way(!). It is a scary fact.

Happy Friday everyone!
