Life gets in the way of life.

The irony of my situation is that this blog has led me to be more active in my local bike community. Being more active has led me to be more involved. Being more involved eventually led me to not having enough time to post to this blog.

Basically, 2016 will mostly be a wash with posts. I am making a commitment, to myself, to start posting again.

Let’s start with something fun. A few years ago, I thought it would be funny to ‘Photoshop’ my head/face onto old bicycle images and artifacts, and post them as my Facebook profile pictures. I am currently revisiting them.

I decided to pull them all together and share them here. For reference, I’ve composited them with the original shot. I’m such a tool.

If you find it on the road, shoot it. Route Artifacts Revisited.

with 6 comments

Last year I wrote a post about one of my favorite photographic subject: Route Artifacts. These are interesting things that I find on the road or path while riding my bike. My goal is to shoot the subject and leave it as I found it, keeping the picture as my only souvenir. I usually avoid shooting ordinary objects, trash or dead things, but sometimes those objects might tell an interesting story as well.

I started a photo set on Flickr over a year a go with just a few pics and now I have over 60. If you have a moment, you should go check them out. I’ve also started a Flickr Group so that others can share their own Route Artifacts – you are welcome to contribute. Here are just a few of my favorites:

I actually donated this to the church it was in front of.

Found this on a quiet suburban street.

I never turned over that other card.
