Central Park

Central Park, originally uploaded by Christopher Chan.


Since the 1960s, there has been a grassroots campaign to restore the park's loop drives to their original car-free state. Over the years, the number of car-free hours has increased, though a full closure is currently resisted by the New York City Department of Transportation. (Wikipedia)
Now, go for a ride.

BMC Working Hard

BMC working hard, originally uploaded by Big Daddy Rosa.

Awesome shot! There are so many things right with this shot. Everyone that's going down to the Tour de Georgia take note:

Focus? Spot on.

Composition? Just look at how the shot is framed by the road and the trees on each side and above.

Saturation? Check out those rich colors.

Contrast? The subjects (riders) just pop right out of the photo.

Depth of field? Just right. The riders up front really grab your attention. The riders in the back are so in focus to distract from the leaders, but aren't so out of focus that it breaks up the peloton. You can still tell what it is.

Lighting? The lead riders are well lit instead of hidden in shadows.

Great job!

The Circle is Complete

This is a shameless self-plug of my son. I remember pedaling up hills like this 20-some-odd years ago. It's gonna be cool to watch from this end (as in, dad) over the next few years. Maybe we'll have the training wheels off by the end of the summer, eh?

You really got to go over the stiksandstones1's flickr gallery and check out the rest of his shots. Gives the rest of us something to aspire to.

Thanks for enabling blogging on your flickr shots man.

dream cycling

dream cycling, originally uploaded by arkiss.

This photo really has some character to it. Over the past couple of months or so, I've really grown to enjoy black and white more than I ever have before. The harsh light and shadow really makes this cycling shot more powerful than it would otherwise be.

Excellent capture. I'm going to bed now . . . for my dream cycle.

Road Rash?

Makes me want to stick to singletrack. I've gone flying off my mountain bike plenty of times. Dirt's gotta be a lot softer than pavement. Honestly, I've never gone down on my road bike and really don't want to.

03.09.07 - 149/365: Spin, originally uploaded by d.rex.

I stayed up until 1:00 last night and then got up at 5:00 for a 6 am spin class. I haven't been in ages, but it was fun. Painfully exhausting, but fun. I may actually get my bike out this weekend. Woo-hoo!!!

Great shot Dave. I'm gonna go for a ride now.

"Sign" Language

I took a little trip up to the Smokies yesterday and I couldn't help but notice a couple of strange signs. So, guys and girls, put these into words for me:

Perhaps there should be no racing in the restrooms?

One more:

Always love a trail that warns of this.

Leading Out Levi

Some concentration as the Discovery boys protect Levi on the Long Beach finish.

Wonder if he'll see yellow again this year? I hope I see him in Georgia this year. I hope Georgia happens this year. Still no sponsor . . . in March?
