A Drive By


On the way back to the car yesterday after a very brisk (read chilly) walk,
a cyclist was whipping past us on the highway.....
a sure sign of spring around these parts.

  2. Slowly and surely he made his way along the track, at least his bright orange jacket was a cheery sight for everyone. Cheers from Jean

    1. Jean, his jacket is what caught my attention!! A bright colour popping out of all the surrounding muted colour. He was cycling into a pretty stiff wind at the time.
      Have a great day/night in NZ!

  3. I admire those cyclists that ride even on those chilly days. They get their exercise and fresh air!

    1. It is very exhilarating. That was our main mode of transport for a few years......it becomes part of you, an extension of sorts.
      Is Kingston cyclist friendly, Martha?

    2. Yes, very cyclist friendly! Last summer we didn't ride much because it was so incredibly hot, but this year we're going to go by bike on some of our day trips. I'll just pack up the camera in my backpack and off I'll go! Can't leave the camera behind. You just never know what you'll discover along the way that's worth photographing. But you already know that :)

    1. Yes, spring is usually a chilly one at first here but hey, we'll take it, thank you very much!!
      Sharon, did you get all that rain you were expecting?

  6. If you scroll down through the photos quickly, you can watch him ride by! LOL -- just like one of those old flip books when we were kids.

    1. Hi Marti. That's right, it is like those flicker movies. I hold the camera still and hold down the shutter button and 'watch' the movie unfolding before my eyes.
      With all your wildlife photos, there may arise an opportunity for you to try it...if you haven't already.

    1. Thanks Pat. I used 'posterize' on Picasa making sure the orange jacket stayed.

  10. What cool pictures, Jim! I don't know what editing technique you were using, but I love the effect. Did you ever have your kiddos make flip books by drawing a series of pictures, stapling them together, and flipping through the pages? You could make a cool flip book with those images ~ had on the color printer ink though! It's fun scrolling through your photos backwards too! I see that some of your other commenters have been having fun with this too! Have a good one!

    1. I never had my kids make flip books. Most of that would have been too difficult for my kids to manage when I did have a 'classroom' for a few years. But I can see it being a great hit Louise!
      I used good ole Picasa (posterize) and got what I wanted more or less. It was difficult to keep the colour.
