Clear Wednesday & Sunday mornings. Rain possible Thursday, Friday, & Saturday.
I biked to Mt. Sinai today [3.68 mi.] for my 4th site survey and biked home [3.08 mi.]. I also looked at the church grounds Easter Sunday evening.
In terms of blossoms and the weather forecast, I need to shoot tomorrow morning. That means sunrise be there before the rising sun.
I expect this will be a two-part shoot. There is not sufficient foliage of the trees for a meaningful spring presentation.
Integrating fitness [in the absence of personal transportation] and photography…
I am to take seasonal pictures of my home church–Mt. Sinai Missionary Baptist Church, Murchison Road, Fayetteville, North Carolina.
I took pictures in December. Now, we want pictures with green. I want the dogwood trees in bloom and leaves on the other trees. Flowers, if any, with blossoms as well.
This will be a sunrise shoot, capturing the church, enhanced by the greenery. The pastor and staff are thrilled with the pictures from the December shoot. I want to better those.
Anyway, without a vehicle, I needed to get there. For the distance and purpose, I chose to ride. I’ll likely make a few more to see when I plan to shoot. I think in 2-3 weeks.
This was a special trip on my single speed bike [Faye] to survey an upcoming photo shoot. This route was about traffic avoidance. It worked well getting there and less well riding home.
Yes, there are hills. I rode them on a single speed bike.
Fortunately, I’m able to keep leg strength and meet the challenge slight elevation gives. The route home has more hills–met those with a vengeance.
Regrettably, my phone locked up and I missed capturing the entire ride. Oh well…
Replaced the remaining [lost one] Brooks leather bar-end cap with a pair red Fyxation Bar End Plugs. They match the bike’s color and several accessories.
Flickr Album–2015 RANS Citi Crank Forward [“Faye“]
Yes, I am riding–more on my Crank Forward than my road bike. I just do not write about it as much as I once did. I have added a few safety items: mirrors & horn/siren. I move my main light from my road bike to the Citi [Faye BTW]. She always had the amber front light and the red tail light. For sure, I should be visible, I can see the path to my front and above all, I can be heard. To be gentle, I use the bell. I still love creating/finishing my cycles. Cycling is an activity I never expect to stop. –jim
