In order to satisfy the mandates of the Coffeeneuring Challenge (this was my fourth Coffeeneuring ride out of the requisite seven caffeine excursions), I pedaled over to the Trailhouse, our local coffee bar / beer joint / bike shop.

    That’s a nice picture Bill. First glance – wow! it’s snowing, But no, it’s the old push the B&W film processing to bring out the grain effect. Effective.

      Tony, I don’t know much about photography, but I have three theories:

      (1) Never point the camera directly at the sun

      (2) Take about a hundred photos of a subject, and maybe one will come out halfway decent

      (3) If not halfway decent, switch to grayscale, max out the special effects, and call it Art

    It’s always nice to live in a place where you can get beer and bike stuff from the same vendor.

    Ah, very clever! The work of art you are taking a picture of is the picture itself.

    I really do like that photo work of art! Nicely done even if you were trying to cover up a possible flaw ;’-)
