Bonne idée avec la vue sur le vélo.
Picturit: Thank you, Martine. I happen to walk by and saw this in the back mirror.
Ah this is so terrific, Astrid! I love how sharp the mirrored image is, and it's great in B&W!
Picturit: I walked by and saw this view, Elizabeth.
Well seen Astrid...
Picturit: Thank you, Frank, not my best one just different.

Lovely mix of blurred textures and sharp mirror capture. Very good in B/W..u r creative!
Picturit: Thank you kindly, Bonnie. I walked by and saw that image.
How fabulous, Astrid. I love this...especially after our long bike ride yesterday! smile
Picturit: Yes indeed and this picture was already in the queue not knowing we ended up with a bike ride yesterday...smile

This is a fine perspective! And I read that you both have done long bike rides yesterday!
Picturit: Yes, Philine, we did quite unexpected a nice bike ride yesterday with the 4 of us.

The clarity jumps out. Hope Ginnie's knee was OK riding
Picturit: Thank you, Lisl. Ginnie "feels" that she has done something yesterday and we will take ik easy for the rest of the day.

I love the way you have the focus on the mirror, it looks quite a novel image Astrid.
Picturit: Thank you, Chad. One of those things I see when I walk around.
This makes a cracking b&w Lady P
Picturit: Thank you, Bill. One of those pictures I almost did not post... how well do I know myself sad....

All very different most of the UK bikes but they the Dutchies don't all seem to dress up in Sky year kits here as many British cyclists like to do. I like the perspective here.
Picturit: Alan, these are the city bikes which are different from the "race-bikes" and these bikes you go shopping with... As for Sky-wear...I hardly see those riding around, when "racers" belong to a local club they buy the gear from their club and sponsors and as for me, I wear the very bright t-shirt neon orange from the Mud-race, proudly won fair and square grin....
Top of the class, Ma'am. This is grrreat!
Picturit: I take a deep bow for your kind words, Mary. Thank you. It is one of those pictures that can go either way...
Very clever Astrid.
I have a problem with my SC blog at the moment, apologies if I appear to be a bit aloof with replies etc., hopefully it will be sorted soon.
Picturit: Thank you, Brian. I am so sorry that you have problems with SC. I hope it will be sorted out soon.
How fun! And even more so in b&w!
Picturit: Thank you, Robin. One of those pictures I almost did not post...

Great shot. I like how the mirror reflection is in focus and the rest is into background DOF.
Picturit: Thank you, Louis. Mirrors fascinate me and I often see bikers riding with one. I bought one for Ginnie to be able to look over her shoulder without turning around....
You never know what reflections you'll see when you look into a mirror, Astrid. Wonderful!
Picturit: Mirrors fascinate me to no end and when I see one I always have to look what they do and what the mirror sees. I don't need to see myself!!!!! grin....

An adventurer waiting to get out smile
Picturit: Indeed, Cherry. Don't you love it to see what a mirror sees...
I think that is a terrific shot. Blurry except the mirror.
Picturit: Thank you, Michael. Mirrors fascinate me, I always wonder "what do they see"...
Bit of white there, too smile
Picturit: Indeed,Tom. Otherwise it would be a real "Chad" picture.... like he did for a long time over the weekend, "no picture Saturday" and " no picture Sunday" grin
go ahead... back up... great idea and a fine composition Astrid....petersmile
Picturit: HA, thank you, Peter. Some people even have mirrors on the bike, this is a motorbike...
