Every time I see an adult on a bicycle, I no longer despair for the future of the human race.

Day 7, completely missed focal point while shooting totally manual and filming with a 2nd camera. The point being it has been a privilege to be witness of this event and will try again during the rain!

By chance I got a photo of Peter Sagan our new world champion on the road course training day when I was shooting with an all manual camera. Very good looking young man but seemed to have focused on his female teammate (Tereza Medvedov√°). My batting average in getting good shots wasn’t very good for this event but really enjoyed never the less.

I had a chickadee land on my hand for a peanut today and all three titmouse friends. Reflecting what was so special about today my pea brain remembered it was my mom’s birthday who would have been 101. A couple of cool photo’s of mom at the Virginia State Fair circa 1930’s? She’s sitting on a bear in one below.
