Philippe: This is by far, one of my favourite benefits of morning jaunts (in this case, a run). I've lucked out in that the sling bag I've got for the camera has a waist strap as well and, when tightened properly, doesn't hinder the run at all. :)
The 'saucer' effect is a known issue with the D70 and direct sun shots.. I don't mind it too much as it adds to the mood :P.
Philippe: This one would need trimming to make it pretty, but I like the wide feel of the shot.
Aside from it being really neat to watch traffic pass below us, I like the reflections in the blue glassed building.
