July in Photos

TweetA busy unpredictable month. A lot less photos taken than normal. Tiny human becoming more of a human. An extended trip to Ireland. Some local exploring down lanes I didn’t know. Training with CVSRT. Training the tiny human to be an outdoor human. A wedding. Another trip to Ireland to spend time on a mountain. Read more →

Scotland in Film – First Time

TweetA post that has been in Proof mode for far to long: September of last year! ~~ The cycling focus for the past two years ended abruptly for me after the Tour Divide. I needed something else to focus on. Many would have ridden more, but I needed a break, something else to occupy my legs and mind. Running was… Read more →

From February… Read more →

What was shot was what was to be entered, undeveloped, unseen by Giles. It was a fun day, 5 hours to shoot 3.5 minutes… Read more →

Best Photos of 2016

TweetI took quite a few photos this year. Some good, some bad. From them I’ve had an enjoyable (??) time trying to chose my favourite photo from each month. I failed. Too many stories, moments, actions associated to too many photos to cut down to 12. So I chose 24. One set of twelve for exercise; cycling and running mostly,… Read more →
