I spent the morning staring at my phone, hoping it would ring, and listening for the ding of my email inbox. Neither happened before lunch. All the while, the beautiful day was slipping away. I slipped the phone into my pocket and let a breezy sunshine draw me out into the city I love. With a camera in each hand, I roved the streets for two hours. These are three things I saw.

The phone never did ring. But I did get some spam in my inbox.
