I went riding on my mountain bike today. I really didn’t know how stiff I was until I tried to get on my Bike, wow, what an eye opener. I got on my bike and what did I do, well I almost fell on my face, lucky I landed on some nice soft grass. I scraped my shin a bit but it will heal. I finally got riding and went for about 20 city blocks. The wind was fairly strong, and I had to adjust my saddle a little to use the bike more efficiently. Well about half way out I thought I better get back before I run out of energy. It got harder to pedal as I was going against the wind, so I shifted down and was able to get back with no problem. Well I wasn’t really gone for long, so when I got back and put the bike away, I went into my garden to relax in the sun a bit. The sun was so nice I sat there for a good 1/2 hour. Then the birds were getting a little angry at me for interfering in getting at their feeders. So I looked around my little garden and saw a few of my plants were blooming. Now my brain starting wiring and clicking, and I thought, yes I should take a few photos of these beautiful blooms, but how do I do this, hmmm. So I went into the house and looked for my skinny vase, and there it was. I hurried into the garden and cut the 3 blooms that were blooming, put them in the vase and hurried back into the house. Then I thought, hmmm, how do I set this up, hmmm. I know I will do a still life. similar to how I took the still life of the Big Camera that I have. Then I took several different angles and came up with the photos I am about to show you. I hope you like them.
