I think being an amateur artist has squewed my views of everyday things. How's that for a statement?
There is just something in my mind that becomes fascinated with groups, shapes, colors, geometry...etc. I always view things as if I am looking at a future canvas. I think that is the reason why when I see cyclists, speedskaters and runners in a fast moving pack, it always has me gawking in amazement.
As Kim, a fellow speedskater says to passing motorists or cyclists as we pass them packed up in a peloton... "oh yes, we do look that good". I figure if you can't go fast, you might as well look fast. ;)
