MY RIDE ON THE WILD SIDE-THROUGH ROSE COLORED GLASSES
MY DAUGHTER THINKS I SHOULD DRESS UP MY CIRCA 1954 SCHWINN CORVETTE BIKE BY ADDING STREAMERS OR BIG FELT COVERED DICE TO THE HANDLE BARS.
The sun didn't shine on Saturday for the Apple Blossom parade so I postponed my bike cruising til Sunday, which turned out to be a gorgeous sunny day- perfect for a bike ride! Unfortunately, the apple blossoms had peaked the week before so they weren't putting on their best show, or there would have been more people out enjoying the display. Those who were out must have thought I was a straggler from the parade the day before although I didn't see their expressions as every time I met a car I had my head down like a two year old...if I can't see them...they can't see me...right?
If you think my pictures are a little on the "pink" side, they are. Not sure what's going on with my camera, hopefully the settings are just off and I can fix the problem. It's not quite five years old and I paid close to $500 for it so I hadn't planned on replacing it yet. I will probably buy a cheaper one for now, or perhaps I should take my pink pictures as a sign and look at it optimistically...I always said that someday I wanted to buy a good camera and actually learn how to use it, above and beyond the automatic setting...maybe even take some photography classes. We'll see.
