Bugger me, it's been miserably cold and windy this week. Not the most pleasant cycling weather. I've changed over to full fingered gloves, which make taking photos on the run a lot harder. I started with this photo (note the pelican on the water) and then remembered Cav's advice about 1/3 proportions. Damn.
So I took another photo, aiming for the 1/3 proportions. I think I go there. And the pelican is still there.
Then I thought I'd take a political photo - see, it slants heavily to the right but is otherwise fair and balanced.
How this bloke didn't freeze to death is beyond me.
And here's the afternoon photo. I had to do four separate rides on Friday. For the first (which was a pre-dawn start), I was fully rugged up with three layers and long fingered gloves. The second was mid-afternoon, so I shed a layer and switched to fingerless gloves. By the time I started my third ride, the sun was going down and I was pushing it staying with just two layers and fingerless gloves. the fourth leg was done an hour after sunset - it was back to full rig then, or die. There are days when I feel like I'm dragging a wardrobe around behind me.
