Memories of 2008























No one could forget this. I could'nt because I paid this much during my Memorial Day 2008 road trip.






















I attended my first Bay To Breakers marathon as a spectator. It's a serious marathon with world class marathoners participating. It is also a venue where ordinary people walk, in costumes or without, just like here. My first time to see this in SF.






















I saw my first fox in the wilds at La Grange when my brother and his family invited me and my husband to a weekend of fishing. I was very excited. The fox was a bit far from the road and this is as close as my point and shoot can go. I also spotted a vulture, but all the photos I took were blurry.



I shall have another post or two about 2008 before I start a new series.

Hahahhaa... I'm sure no one will forget the fuel prices of 2008 :P

great shots! so glad the sky-rocketing gas prices of 2008 is just a memory.:D

wishing you all the best in 2009!

Fuel prices that high?? That's why people go on a marathon of course and the fox doesn't care much about the fuel.

$5.00 per gallon! wow!

Fuel price is quite low compared to the one in France.
Very nice shots Maria.

This is a nice way to revisit 2008. I'm happy that somehow the price of gasoline has gone down. I hope that there will be another price decrease soon.

That's an interesting marathon.

Spotting that fox must have been a nice experience.

Great shots. It was amazing how high gas got. The marathon looks like a fun place to take photographs. Very colorful. So cool to catch the shot of the fox.

It's shocking, even now, to see the prices at a pump! :-) I'm glad that has changed and hope it remains changed. Nice street shot and a fine one of the fox.

What a lovely way to reflect on 2008.
Measured time so to speak.
May 2009 bring you joy and peace in abundance.

I'm planning on attending my first Bay to Breakers, too, this year. I thought they arrested people who "run" naked. =)
