Bike Ride

We have a law in Maryland that says you can't text while driving. No one said anything about taking photos while driving. I was coming up on this guy while heading to an assignment and grabbed the first camera I could get my hands on. No time to look at the settings. I just crossed my fingers. It worked.

This biker is enjoying a beautiful spring-like day as he passes by Eddie Heath's Crab Pots. Every crabber in the world must be using his crab pots. He is busy all year long.

Thanks Eddie, for all you give back to the community. Eddie is a big supporter of our town and we all appreciate what he does.

Thanks to the unknown biker and the camera gods who made this photo possible, although I wish I had caught up with the biker a few feet back in order to show more of the colorful wire.

One of my dreams is having and learn to ride the bike again. I have fear in riding motorcycle.

I haven't ridden a bike in a few years, but this looks like a perfect blue-sky day for a bike ride!

I'm known to grab my camera while driving, too. But then, it's way easier than texting, which I have trouble with when I'm not driving!

Great shot!

It made for a great photo Patty. I Love all the colours.

I wish my 'planned' photos were 1/4 as good as your 'snap and go' ones... You are terrific!

Yep, the stars aligned on that one! I've just posted a drive-by, but Geoff was driving and I was shooting.

thanks, patty,

gonna try that finger-crossing
thingy, . . . seems to work pretty well.

so, d'ya put the crossed fingers under the lens? or d'ya use 'em to on the push-button?


good work!

Amazing what our camera can spot, isn't it! Thanks for your comment. You took the photos. I took the stories. We wove them into something that, like a kite, got loose and bobbed up into the blue sky. Yes we did.
