I went for a ride on the local hike & bike trail, but had to turn back just a little ways in because last night’s heavy rains had caused a bit of flooding. I started riding in the water, but decided it wasn’t a good idea and turned back. Oh well. It was actually kind of fun!
If you check the video, you can skip ahead to about 15:15 to see the flooded trail.
I went for a bicycle ride with Rossa this evening and, as usual, had my GoPro recording so I could make a YouTube video. I was stoked because there were so many birds singing on the ride, and there was a beautiful deer in the middle of the road as I a rode by. It was so cool!
But unfortunately, my GoPro had shut off long before and there was no footage. My first thought that it overheated, but it’s never done that after only 10 minutes of recording, and plus the settings I was using weren’t anything more demanding on the processor than normal. Also, in the times when it overheats, it will beep as a warning before shutting down. This time, I didn’t hear any beeps. I can only guess that the GoPro just glitched and shut off.
Anyways, extreme disappointment! But it was still nice to get out and ride. Two wheeled travel is the best. 😀
Today I went on a long (for me) ride with Rossa, my Bianchi Alante bike. It was really windy, but still a lot of fun. Actually, the wind was good because I saw some people flying kites at the park which is always neat to see. Kites are so cool.
If you’d like to ride along with us, I made a video (as I do with most of my bicycle rides). Please take a look if you have time!
It’s been a while since I have biked to my regular sunset spot. This evening, I went for a ride with Rossa around the neighborhood and by chance, the sun was setting just as I was passing the sunset spot.
I wasn’t planning on taking photos, so I left my Fujifilm X-E4 at home and only had my iPhone 12 Mini with me. I think the photo turned out pretty good! I took many photos using both the iPhone’s camera software and the RAW camera app, but the iPhone’s built-in processing handled the sunset scene better than my Lightroom skills did with the RAW file. I’m happy with it!
Anyways, it was fun to get out on the Bianchi bicycle again and just cruise around the neighborhood and seeing the sights and saying hello to neighbors.
My camera & photos
I use a Fujifilm X-series camera for most of the photos on this site and my Instagram. Why not pick one up for yourself?
