In the Nederland’s you are never far from a bike. They are everywhere. This one has either been stood here a while, or is being used as decoration. This I believe this explanation more than the latter.

First off, I don’t really know if the person I was sitting next to down the café was a courier or just out for a ride. Still I took this shot on the sly.

Waiting for Edvald

20180516-untitled shoot-11-Edit-2As some of you may know, I have more than a passing interest in cycling. On the 16th of May the professional “Tour of Norway” passed my way. I arrived early at my chosen vantage point at least an hour before the riders turned up. People were already out and about eagerly awaiting the riders and,given the next day was a national holiday everyone was in a festive mood.

If you have ever wondered what would make a person stand by the roadside to watch 30 seconds of cycling go past haven’t thought about the fun had by the supporters beforehand. The chance of seeing a superstar whizz past is a bonus. In no other sport can Joe-public get so close to their idols.

If you are left wondering whom this Edvald is I’m talking about one of Norways cycling superstars Edvald Boasson Hagen.

Learning to ride

My wife lends a helping hand to my nephews daughter while she was learning to ride without training wheels.

It’s about time I got back into film again. I have enough of it in the freezer and I do enjoy using it. I really feeling like I’m making the picture. It can be heartbreaking at times. However the rewards are,well worth it in my opinion.
