I just added in the missing self portrait (at the end). It's always interesting to see who is behind the camera.

For that picture, I placed the camera on a picnic table in the park and used the self-timer to allow me to get in the scene. Funny, there's another cyclist in the background (can you find him?). I must have seen six or so bike riders out today, including a couple with a child in a tow cart. That was unusual.

Yep.....I see some smile there. Fascinating and great view of your journey. I really enjoyed it. Thanks. I agree about those bike lanes...you have to have some sort of death wish to ride in them.

Dave - you really call a spade a spade (LOL).

I'm actually not the sourpuss my unflattering avatar picture suggests. On the contrary, I'm often smiling and laughing. But I am serious when problem-solving, and that was my first attempt at using the self-timer on this particular camera, so I was studying it carefully to see if it was going to work. Most likely I smiled after I heard the camera "click".

In bright light, the camera LCD screen is unreadable, and the text is so small I usually need reading glasses to read it, so that's why I was looking on rather seriously. Operating cameras is usually not so challenging, but the new ones are like a computer with only a two inch screen!

That's great, you surpassed my abilities when you worked out the timer on your camera... :)

I love a good laugh and it doesn't take much with me. Although I'm finding humour doesn't always translate well when written.

Warm wishes...
Lee

Great idea sharing your world with us. THANKS.

Hopefully, this is just the start. I created this "Members" area in the "Welcome" forum with the idea that other members might also want to share a slice of their world. I did mine as a simple web page. If anyone else wants to do a "web page" on our server, send me a PM and we'll figure out the procedural details.

ITS JUST A RIDE -

Here is a video of a bike ride around my town Byron Bay. You are most welcomed to attend.
Maybe you could start a bike ride like this in your home town as this is a world wide event.

Enjoy and have a laugh.

Bike Riding in Byron

This is the ride to my house. The creek is red because it is a tea tree lake.

Pretty! All that green looks so attractive, given that we are still in winter and in drought conditions here in Colorado.
