July Challenge — 7

Bright-Eyed Fuzzy Mouthed Face

Face on a desiccated radish     —      Wasn’t on a ride or a walk so it doesn’t count, but it is sort of interesting
Another Not For Credit Photo — A Hagen All Speed Chain Ring (made in Minneapolis/St.Paul MN) A lever would use the spiral on the opposite side to run the small cogs up and down the slots — thus producing an “infinite” number of ratios.

Very much enjoy all the entries you all have provided -- great to see the everyday cycling venues. Being in eastern Illinois, scenery certainly isn't our forte, but oh well, the roads are normally quiet. Look forward to more and more entries from all of you, I do have a few over on BL -- in Bill's Day Rides, and one journal.

    The bright-eyed, yellow flower face was a most perceptive find. You get a solid “A.” Like many teachers, I give preferential treatment to students who put in extra effort, or leave an apple on my desk, or post pictures of bike parts made in The Twin Cities. Therefore, you not only get an “A” but you also get a Gold Star.

      It was an old radish I pulled, and it was left in the sun for several days — interesting how the interior is gone but the webbing of the skin remained. The eyes and mouth are where roots entered?

    Those are all great finds! That is definitely the first in my life that I’ve seen a dessicated radish – that’s really interesting and I like the face. I guess the webbing that remains tells you where all the insoluble fibre is in that plant!

    Fine collection! Interesting that the radish is on a bicycle rack made by Pletscher in Switzerland.
