That fellow is really working toward a Darwin Award. What is the point? Is it really necessary to advertise your irresponsible stupidity?

I honestly do not get it. Public roads are not anyone's playground. Not only the idiot can get hurt, but also he can hurt someone else with his stupidity.

As the saying goes, a good mechanic and good traffic laws can protect us against everything except a loose nut behind the wheel.

Looks like an improvement to me. Nice image, I like the vivid colours and perspective.

Glad you enjoyed the image. I try to visualize the street without chairs but instead with carts and donkeys and perhaps some people of horseback. It must have been very different a century back, much less when the street was first established - who knows when?

When I saw Tulip Ave I thought of Sewanhaka High School where I spent a lovely time in the aviation classes which I don't think they have anymore.
