A rainy day
It still isn’t cold and I have all the rain gear you could need, so in spite of some predicted rain I went out with camera. Janos came along this time, but had bike problems, fortunately close to home, and turned back. I planned a small loop, hoping to find something I felt like photographing. If it’s a short ride, I am always on roads and paths I’ve ridden dozens and dozens of times in the three years that we have been living in Gauting. Hard to find anything new.
The temperature was 10C/50F, again very mild for January. When it started to rain after about two thirds of the ride, I stopped at a small bench in the forest and got out my helmet cover, rain mits and protection for my cargo bag. Next to the bench was a decaying tree stump. Although it has no application in my personal life, the Chinese slogan ‘let it rot’ , which took ‘lying flat’ to the next level, has become a kind of ear worm ever since I heard it a few weeks ago.
Again no waterfall except that coming from above. Besides it’s not Wednesday any more so I have all week to find a Waterfall Wednesday picture.
On Flickr we have Bench Monday, Treemendous Tree Tuesday, Windows Wednesdays, Stairs for Thursday and Fence Friday. And many others that I don’t participate in. The pictures can be taken any time but only submitted on the designated day of the week. It’s kind of fun although I don’t contribute regularly.
