Sunday through the camera lens

On a Sunday evening out and about in Omaha, it's fun to take along a camera, because you never know what you'll run across.

Like summer boaters in the Missouri River, as seen from Lewis and Clark Landing downtown.

OR THE TOWERS and curves of the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge, which spans the river to join Omaha and Council Bluffs, Iowa.

Or leisure boats passing beneath you.

Or, as you stand on the Council Bluffs levee, spying the sun beginning to set behind the trees along the Iowa river bank.

You never know when the sunset will turn out to be absolutely spectacular.

Like this.

See what I mean.

Pedal power amid the hoofing-it crowd.

Moonrise over the city.

Sunset over the site of the new downtown ballpark.

And then we make our way back to the car, parked in the lot under the I-480 ramps.

One-half second exposure, F 3.1, 25 m.p.h. For what it's worth.

The view downtown.

And amid more fun with slow shutter speeds, we're headed homeward down Farnam past the lighting-display store. Say good night, Gracie.
