A souvenir my way comes

The Tour of Norway passed close to my doorstep on Wednesday this week. Being I am a big cycling fan I placed myself where I knew they would have to take a sharp lefthand turn. I lay in the grass with my camera ready and shot off a load of images. After the leaders and the main Peloton had blasted past a domestique from the Uno-X team came past, his hunched back carrying several water bottles for his thirsty team mates.  He threw his empty bottle away and that was my souvenir of the day…plus this shot. So whomever you were (I didn’t get your number) thank you.

…is Norway’s national day. For one day the whole of Norway is in party mood. Parades, National dress, ice cream,hotdogs, marching bands, and waving royalty, the whole works. It’s always fun to watch with everyone in their finery.

So maybe raise a glass to celebrate with us.

I got on the wrong side of the camera.

I’m not sure if this was shot by the wife or my daughter. Still it looks like me :0)

I take tons of photos during the course of a year.Maybe not as many as a pro does but more than average (Unless we count teenagers with cell phones). My point is, do you like being photographed ? I’m not sure if I do not one on one anyway I don’t mind if I’m part of a group.

Share your thoughts.

My Bike

Yes I know it’s in Colour!!!

I was challenged by a mate on FB to post things that make me happy the next five days . I took this today with my iPhone4s. I liked it so much I thought I’s share it with you. It’s of my old war horse of a bike I have owned and ridden since the late 90’s. We’ve covered many Kilometres of tarmac together including 3 of the 4 Trondheim to Oslo rides (540 KM’s) I have completed. in addition  all the training rides and smaller tour rides. Now I just use it to cycle the 36 kms back and forth to work. Today in the rain both ways .

This bike make me happy.
