On the road

We are on another trip, two weeks in France’s Alsace region. I’ve started my journal, can’t promise fast progress on it, though. I sort of peter out in the evening and don’t get much writing done. I do have a picture or two or three for the July challenge.

Birding

Hardly saw any birds on my ride today, the few that flew overhead didn’t alight for me to get their picture. But I knew where to look for bird feeders and bird houses. They were all at the same location which you can see in the featured picture on top. Below are close up shots.

Inspired by a challenge

About four years ago I endeavored to photograph Munich’s hochbunkers, above-ground bunkers, remaining from WW2. Our Outbuildings Challenge reminded me of the project, although I’m not sure I could call these sturdy structures outbuildings. Since Greg showed interest in these vestiges from the war, I returned to the unfinished project to see what I could … Continue reading "Inspired by a challenge"

Cycle Days Challenge: The February 2022 Edition

February has come to a close, the last winter month, at least according to the meteorological calendar. The calendrical beginning of spring is March 21 this year.

P M

My ride seemed to favor P’s and M’s. Not much to say about the ride itself. We rode a familiar route and passed the same sights as usual, still not wishing to veer off onto dirt trails through the woods that are now quite muddy. Muddy is actually the theme of the ride.

I think I posted most of the pictures here already for the weather challenge, so nothing new. As the season morphed into winter, we had some beautiful days of bright fall colors, some … Continue reading "Cycle Days Challenge: The November 2021 Edition"

NSQ

I chose some new letters for myself today. The writing on the wall told me to do it. I don’t know what SQ is supposed to stand for, maybe Suzy Q. The big news for today is B for blue, the big blue. Look at that sky. Hadn’t seen a blue sky for ages.

Weather Report – November 13 – 14 – 15 – 16 – 17

I’ll lump these monotonous gloomy days into one report – grey and foggy with temperatures ranging from 3C/37F to 6C/43F, 85% relative humidity. It’s still not so cold that I can’t ride and it’s not raining, so I have been out. Not many pictures of sky or weather as such, but I have pictures which … Continue reading "Weather Report – November 13 – 14 – 15 – 16 – 17"
