Day #163 - Solar Powered

I was initially excited about this shot...the way the sun beamed through me like that, but I really wanted to capture the feeling of both my own power and freedom that being out on two wheels gave me. In this shot I really could be doing anything apart from riding a bike...straightening out a length of twisted spagehetti, pinning two attackers down( whilst a passer by calls the police), practicing my butterfly stroke.. or rolling out a giant sheet of pastry for my exciting record attempt at ' The World's Largest Jam Tart'.

    All true - but to me the shot
    speaks of heat, perspiration
    and exhaustion. Lawrence

    rest at mid day

    I think you have every right to be excited about this shot........whatever your imagination tells you that you could've been doin'.

    RIcks Picks...I code most of my html manually, but for the thing you speak of I think you need Greasemonkey

    This is a great shot, as rick says it does not matter what you are actually doing in the shot, it's more what the viewer perceives you to be doing. I like this shot a lot, the bonus (or meant) is you have this beautiful sun flare from under your arm, very well done , the flare could easily have washed out the entire shot.

    Excellent colors and light in this one. Great idea as well.

    straightening out a length of twisted spaghetti???

    and yes, if you would pin down the two attackers, i would call the police.

    it's a fantastically cool shot. usually when i get a cool sun shot like this, it's an accident.

    I think we need to start making you the lycra superheroine costume

    if you stare at the sun for long enough you actually travel back in time to the 1970s

    'pinning two attackers down( whilst a passer by calls the police)'

    lol! I love this idea!! You have one hand on each head and they are writhing around like eels and the beam of sunlight is actually the copper's torch, oooo errrrrrr
