i have a few more pics on my phone of the fountain, including one where i accidentally put it in to panorama mode without really knowing how that works on my phone. it looks cool, but it also looks like i reeeally wanted to have a pic with the same girl in it 3 times.. =p i also have one of the mass before it took off. i generally don't take pics during the ride after a ride during which a guy tried to take a pic of us going under mass ave., hit a pothole, and totally ate pavement. just kinda stuck with me..
