I had the best of days yesterday. It was my birthday and I had the privilege of spending the day with my three favorite things; my family, my friends and my bicycle. Honestly, it may have been my best birthday ever.
So….Let me first share with you a few pics I am excited about. If you have been following here for a while, you know I like ride portraits. Today I share with you a series of portraits taken during the ride. I like these because sometimes I get it just right and you see the personality of the individual truly come out. It’s much different than posing portraits. I just take my camera out at the regrouping/rest spots and snap away without much warning and without much fan fair. I also broke the rules and shot these with a wide angle as I only carried a single lens with me for the day. Too bad. I like breaking rules and I like these pics of my friend.

And here are a few random shots from the day. Roads. Friends. Bikes. Whisky. Craft beer. Meat. Yep, pretty much perfect.
Thank you again my friends. Until next time.

I’ve only been riding a few months but cycling is rapidly becoming one of my favourite ways to use time. B&W presentation is very effective here.
Thank you Stephen. It was supposed to be sunny but it was overcast and windy so I saw and felt these images in BW. Also, glad you are finding cycling to be a great way to spend your time. I found that too almost 30 years ago and have not looked back. It has shaped my world, my friends and my profession.
I know what you mean about seeing and feeling images to be B&W when you take them.
Awesome images my friend. That first one is simply stunning!
Thanks Glenn. It was a good day both on the bike and behind the lens. See you soon.
