Re: Salon 238

Don't count this one as I've already submitted two but I thought I'd submit one from a completely different perspective for giggles. Picture quality is lousy as it's a screen capture from a video. For my 70th birthday in 2016, I decided to celebrate the day by riding my unicycle 70 furlongs (about nine miles). My quads gave out way too soon so I changed my plans and rode .70 miles. Anyhow, it's a different kind of selfie. You wouldn't believe how many people yell out, "Hey, you lost a wheel!" to which I always reply, "It's worse than it looks. It started out as a tricycle!"

Re: Salon 238

There is a clear winner this month with the second so close I thought I might have to toss a coin.

A comment as entries entered:

Pat – I enjoyed your first pic very much (your mono cycle shot looked fun) .


Caz – I liked both of yours – the first reminded me that I had a butchers/bakers one with a *cyclemaster engine in the rear wheel – I sold it when the brakes failed and fortunately when shooting across a junction, I hit a hedge rather than a vehicle.


Ron – Some folk must have had fun with those.


Jez – What a great scene – ice cream on the beach and the seller enjoying a pint!


Kurt – A pretty scene and well taken.


Jez – number two – fishing tackle in the box or some fish being delivered I imagine.


Kurt – your second - love the bike and I would need to shed twenty five years+ to ride it.


AndyM – great pic which lead your entries.


Autumn – two colourful bikes – took me back a little.


Garry – gosh the guy had one before Putin’s rockets announced this week!

=========================================

AndyM’s Another from the Low Countries took second place.


The winner is the one which started the challenge which I kept returning to during the challenge.

Congratulations Pat.

Re: Salon 238

Thanks Barr1e! Before I retired, I designed a webstore for a bike and ski shop and then ran their online sales program. I was in the shop one day and when I spotted this view. My wife and I teach an iPhone Photography class in Vermont and we're always telling our students to be on the lookout for unusual perspectives. As a sidenote, Kodak selected this shot as Picture of the Day a few years ago and it was featured on a Jumbotron at Times Square for 24 hours.

Give me 24 hours and I'll have a new challenge for you.

Well done, Pat. A well deserved win, I think.
