Lovely day for a ride!

97/365 - Since David's birth, the girls have been on spring break for a week and then out of town for a week. This week was the first week back to a "normal" schedule. I quickly realized it would work best if I took Addie to and from school so Sheelagh didn't have to round the boys up and put 'em in the car.

 

Today I remembered I had a monopod collecting dust in the attic. I dug it out, dusted it off, and threw the 5d ii on it for some fun. :-)

Ian Norris, gumanow, and Brian Johnson faved this

    Shawn Hoke within reason ;-P
    espressoDOM haha, yeah, i took a video on the way home, and my arm got rather tired in under a minute. the 5d ii body plus 17-40L lens is not light, especially on the end of a stick. :-)

    What a great shot - but you take care :)

    This would go well in the Panda portraits group. It's got nothing to do with pandas but is for self-portraits taken while cycling.

    I miss riding and commuting to work and fun in Portland. I just bought a new NiteRider Newt 250 to inspire me to ride in Texas.

    Hah - I tried a panda like this and it was uber foreshortened. I think I need longer arms!

    Gary - I hear nutcase is making a helmet that looks like a baldie head - you know, helmets are important! ;-)
