Weather is still marginal, another hectic day. Did manage to get a ride in this afternoon – with Mason, once again. I had actually contemplated an errand ride by Xtracycle, trying to convince my mother-in-law that she could ride along on the back, but I just couldn’t talk her into it. Go figure? 😉 So Mason and I headed out on to ride on a couple of roads I don’t ride on very often; it was a nice change of scenery. Damp and earthy smelling after all of the rain, and very, very green. One heavily wooded section of the road was like riding through a green tunnel. I need to revisit these roads more often.
For some reason when the clouds are heavy I am always drawn toward shooting with the fisheye … and today was one of those days. We came across this rusty old wheel along the road near someone’s driveway – and I just loved the scale of it against the bike wheels. It also made me think how crazy it would be to have a bike with wheels that large… (I cannot explain how my brain works some days). Same thing goes for the power lines; I have no explanation. The world can look very different and interesting on a bike – and even more peculiar through a fisheye lens. Put the two together, and, well … ?
So ends Day 39.
