Having one's camera handy can lead to some interesting photos especially in B'game parking lots. Here are two of them. The first one is a Mercedes that is parked right in the traffic lane near the tot lot! Someone just decided to make their own space similarly to this past post.
This second one is on the new section of the Avenue and cost the driver 40 bucks. He missed by a couple feet! Thanks to the local eagle eye blogger who took it and sent it to me.
Personally I like the parallel parking on the Avenew. It feels much more open from a pedestrian's perspective and getting out of the spaces is easier since you can see behind you better. In the old angled scheme if you parked next to an SUV (on your right) backing out was a adventure every time.
