TY!

You have to have the eye to see those photo opportunities.  I only take a few well placed pics then move to the next area. 

I would say I'm patient with photos.  I don't burst fire and hope for a shot.  I'll wait for people to get out of the way if I know it will be a good one.

 

I find it funny that I'm using my cheap bike as the subject in pictures.  I wish I did that with my previous bike.  Can't wait to get back to the US and get a new bike to ride and take pics of.

 

I only have two weeks left in Tokyo.  :(

Places on the list to bike to are:

-Odaiba (10 miles away)

-Mihama (15 miles away)

-Yokohama Bay Bridge (very difficult going to that area because of all the foot traffic)

Very nice pics!

 

 

Here's a picture of my bike back from when it was new. Sadly I don't have anything more exciting material about it. Landscapes are a bit dull back here and my camera is too bulky to bring along for longer rides.

What would we cool is to get a shot of your bike on the Aqualine's Umihotaru. I believe there's an observation deck where you're surrounded by the bay.

Ah, thats so far haha. Better to do in warmer weather. Maybe next trip.

Sepaking of next trip, I plan to be biking in Taiwan next year! Either in Summer or Fall. It will be a confusing vacation because I don't know Mandarin and will be teaching myself the language in the meantime.

My body was not ready.  Recovering from being sick for a week, I had to get out.  I've just started to learn Lightroom and so I used this trip as a RAW test.  If they look funny, I'm still trying to get used to the program. :P

This is the essence of the sport at one level, for me anyway. Nice capture in photos. Felt like I was there too.:wink:

The foto below captures the whole "Ride & Reward" program. :D The bike is parked dead in front of any potential snacks inside the fridge.

Oh my! Not only was family and friends really good to me with LOTS of food and sweets Dec-Jan, but I stopped :eek: riding the last couple weeks... no excuse. Sand but no snow. :rolleyes:

 

Okay, that's it! I'm getting back in the saddle mid-week...

It snowed a bit yesterday and might snow again within the next few days.  Although it is light snow, it still was cold enough to make your body hurt.  I just rode to the store tonight as a test, and it was possible, but not sure how long of a ride I could endure.  I had my headphones on to protect my ears.

 

Selfie from yesterday

Although, I hate the cold, that Selfie makes me wanna visit Japan... a beautiful shot!

I'm planing to buy one of these myself. Being cold outside and driving 80mph is quite uncomfortable for the face frown.gif

I actually used a pedal bike to practice getting used to the feeling of balancing during wheeles on my sportbike. It worked but I have never wheeled since, don't feel the urge to.

Still wanting to buy me a specialized but have to wait frown.gif
