BICYCLES AND OTHER NON-CARS – Garry & Marilyn Armstrong

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Bicycles, Tricycles, Motorcycles, Wagons

Not exactly an “open-air” traveling day. Very bright outside, but also, very cold and colder is coming. It seems winter will some. It’s been creeping up on us, little by little.

The pictures are mostly Garry’s, but a few of mine made the cut!

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Bikes and Motorcycles

I took these motorcycle pictures on one single summer afternoon at the bike show in Mendon. A funny way to take pictures. The show was at a huge car dealership on Route 16.

It’s a major road, the only way to get to a lot of our towns and is Main Street in many places. Never more than a single lane in each direction, it passes through the middle of dozens of little (and not so little) towns and villages as it meanders into Boston. It jams up easily and regularly.

The show brought in a lot of traffic. Route 16 was at a near standstill. With little else to do, I took pictures, hanging out of the car window as we inched along. Much to my surprise, I got a few nice ones.

And that’s why I carry a camera wherever I go.


Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Vehicle Details

If the devil is in the details, so are the best pictures … at least when you are talking about vehicles.


Old trucks. Rusty with age and honor.

It's a fire engine!

But wait! What about … a shiny antique car? Oh, here’s one!

And motorcycles … a few of them maybe?

Motorcycles count too, don't they?

Cee’s Black and White Challenge: Cars, Trucks, Motorcycles

Another of Cee’s cool challenges … and as it happens, I had this interesting photograph of a bunch of motorcycles … and one cyclist. Taken with a very long lens while hanging out the window of a moving car, the length of the lens compressed the image to make it almost abstract.

Hop on over to Cee’s Photography site for more great pictures.

This is what there is to do — if you carry a camera, that is — when you get stuck in traffic. Because there’s a car show in Mendon on the way to the doctor’s office.
