My Town Friday Shoot Out: Power

This is part of My Town Friday Shoot Out. The theme of "Where do you get your power?" was chosen this week by J9. This theme was hard for me as I was unmotivated, but this morning, my lil' one and I used my legs as a source of power and went for a bike ride to take a few photos so I wouldn't be completely out of it this week.

Ready to Ride - Manual Power


My Local Source of Power



Someone Else's Tribute to a Former Source of Power


My Constant Source of Power


My Son's Favorite Powerful Machines, building the new wing on the high school down the block


Next week's theme is relaxation, chosen by Lena. Stay tuned!!

Love your shots, especially the one of your son on your bike - reminds me to get out and ride!

I like the farmhouse one!

I think I tend toward the sadness of the Detroit area because I drive through Detroit twice a week.

We definitely need to meet up at Starbucks! I live quite close to the base and Moreley's Candy Factory.
