Mmmm, I'm wondering whether I could treat myself to a new bike and call it a photographic accessory. :hmmm:
Definitely. The majority of my photographic adventures over the last 12 months have been bicycle related. Either going for a ride, going scouting for new/different locations for a ride, or building fitness again to facilitate better, more enjoyable rides :)
You might notice that the album I linked to, kind of documents the build of that particular bike, from internet sourced parts. Therapeutic :) And good fun

Likewise, most of my adventures have been by bicycle (though featured heavily in 'Walks of the Pandemic' thread).
Here in Wales, we're only allowed out locally, supposedly within 5 miles of our homes, and certainly aren't able to scout out rides.
There's speculation that the Welsh government may allow caravan parks to open sometime in April, so we've got quite few more weeks before we might consider a bit more freedom to explore.
In the meantime, it's great to see on this and other threads, what people are up to - including finding more bike stands :rofl:

Yeah, we were the the same, or similar here, but I had a good excuse ready if needed. Had my physiotherapist teed up to back me up as exercise therapy for my rehabilitation on my broken hip & damaged back. Climbing steps/hills worked the best, & as long as I wasn't a hundred kms or so from home, I reckon I'd be pretty right :)

Great idea for a thread. I haven't been locked indoors as much as most folks, but this is my imagining that I'd been shut in for most of 2020 ("a year that shall live in infamy").

The neck gaiters are convenient masks during winter. Here they sit, longing for a walk outside.

A view from the top of the hill overlooking my hometown Amersfoort in The Netherlands.
I live in the district down the hill, near the church tower visible between the two trees in the foreground.

This can't be real. This isn't the beach near Puerto Vallarta!! This is some sick Disney "Frozen" joke; right?

I would go out and check more closely, but it looks dangerous, I might get lost in the snow! Now where are those apirplane tickets to warmer climes? Did I drop them coming in from the car and they are under all that? :blush:

I hate COVID-19!!

The old Corn Exchange, near the historic (Anglo-Saxon) centre of Bristol. Town grew up probably somewhere between 8th and 10th century - evidence is unclear. This building is 18th century.
A couple of notable things you can see in the picture:
1. One of the bronze "nails" outside where traders did deals (dated 16th and 17th century). Supposedly the origin of the term to "pay on the nail". Although some evidence that the expression is Anglo-Norman and pre-dates them by several hundred years. Similar nails were found in other cities such as Liverpool.
2. The clock has two minute hands, one is GMT, the other is Bristol time (solar time is about 10 minutes behind GMT, here). I think when the railways came (GWR), they ran to GMT.

Taken during 2021 Chinese New Year Holidays @Shanghai Huijin International Plaza, 12km from my home. The place used to be hustling & bustling in holidays and weekends. It looks like a deserted mall these days.

Everyone knows Kiwis can only operate scaffolding (or Aussie Centrelink)... 😂
Not really a joke.

I call 'Centrelink' 'Cretinlink', it's almost an anagram ...

After them getting our affairs wrong since 2012 (!!), and literally hundreds of phone calls (longest was 147 minutes - it pays to keep detailed file notes ... ), I took them to the AAT (administrative appeals tribunal).

My submission was 100 pages long, including fact and law.

We won. 100% across the board in our favour.

The organization needs a really good boot up their behind.
