Yellow Rules

I quote: “Take a photo of a subject with a single dominant color, with the bike of course.” So, no my picture isn’t monochrome, but the flower is my subject and it is yellow. Or is it just shmonochrome?

Anyway, the GoPro is amazing and takes great wide angles shots. I didn’t have to climb a tree for the looking-down point of view, the shot in the banner photo is hand held.

With rain predicted for the next day, we decided to take advantage of the warm evening and after supper Janos and I got on our bikes for a short spin. We didn’t go far since the sky was looking threatening, as if it might rain earlier than expected.

The selfie was also made possible by the GoPro. In case you’re wondering, my t-shirt says Young, Wild and Beautiful. I have a sense of humor.

I had my regular camera along with me, too.

No bricks, no old-and-new, definitely not monochrome, but a nice photo subject

I'm a US born ex-pat, having lived most of my adult life in Munich, Germany. I have three kids and eight grandchildren - so I'm pretty old. Cycling, photography and walking are my favorite things.

    Nice t-shirt (good contrast to my “Old, Weak, and Slow”) and nice photographic work, as always. My ace support crew has been offering/threatening to buy me a GoPro for a couple of years, but I have always declined. You are forcing me to reconsider that decision. In exchange, maybe I’ll get her a shirt like yours.

    I love your t-shirt – and as Janet notes, it seems to fit you perfectly.
    That GoPro seems like a winner!! A magic button for your play.

    Soooooooo are we going to get videos at some point?
    The wagon looks like what in Wyoming would be a sheep herders wagon — sort of a mobile home while tending the flock.
    Your T-shirt says it all!

      My videos so far are rubbish – you get sea sick looking at them. I have to practice a little.

      Thanks for the link, Scott! I’ll be on the Mountain of Hell track as soon as I learn which buttons to push on my GoPro.
