The first fog of the year has come to Sacramento, shrouding the skyscrapers in mystery. I had to get to work early, so I managed to catch them in that peaceful moment when it’s not night anymore, but it’s not really day yet either. It’s perfect.
[Fifth in an occassional series about things I see on my commute.]
Today, on my way home, I get up on the freeway, and a couple vehicles in front of me, I see a truck. It looked like this:
Hmmm, says I, it’s a Duck truck. Now, I don’t root for the Oregon Ducks, but they play in the same league as my beloved Cal Bears, so it’s still nifty to see. I begin to wonder if it might be the equipment truck. I decide to overtake and I snap one more picture of the side of the truck as I go by:
It made me laugh. So I asked over on Addicted to Quack, an Oregon sports blog, about what that truck was. And sure enough, my guess was right. You see, the Ducks played Tennessee in Knoxville on Saturday night, and the afternoon commute hours today were just right for the Ducks’ equipment truck to be passing through Sacramento on its way home to Eugene from that game.
I wonder if Cal has a similar truck?
Fiddling around this morning with the phone and discovered how to set the camera in black and white mode. I kinda like this — there’s a solemn majesty in it.
Yah, I think I like the black and white one better.
Found this on the ground this morning as I was walking into work. It was part of a larger chalk drawing. It made me laugh.
There’s more to say, but I’m gathering thoughts right now. Maybe later.
