Reflections of a parking lot on a building near the OSU campus, circa 1987. Skinny dude at the top is yours truly.

Less than a mile from home.
Parking lot of a strip mall including a Staples, Bath and Bodyworks, Dollar Tree, Fashion Bug and a Wal Mart. Building at far left is a Rite Aid.

This is my only shot specifically for this contest. I was so excited by the sunset, I remembered my camera, but forgot my wallet. The walk was supposed to be to pick up meds at the Rite Aid. I got so engrossed in the photography, I forgot my wallet 3 times. I wound up leaving my camera at home and driving the half mile once all the photography was done.

The Pacific Ocean doesn't usually jump into this parking lot, but when the tide is high and the surf is rough, it does.

I wanted a skateboarder but had to settle for a middle-aged man.
I did this 17 times.
Two days before a ski trip.
