commute photo essay - riverside bikeways VIII

Not sure why I'm numbering these, almost all of them are along the riverside bikeways. This is the marker that officially marks the end of the Jingmei River portion of the bikeways, and the beginning of the Xindian River portion, although I'm not sure it accurately marks where the rivers actually meet. The Xindian River portion runs about 10km before it turns into the Danshui portion.

Thick ivy along the flood wall and a double-decker freeway on top. Oh, and hey there's Mr. Fisheye Lomo Strap. I guess it had to happen that the strap would get in the way. Fortunately I'm not careless enough to let this happen often, and now that it has happened it'll probably never happen again.
