No cycling today, I’ve got a cold and a bit of a temperature, so thought I’d stay indoors, and experiment with uploading images from my camera, as opposed to using the camera on my mobile phone. The mobile phone got me started, but the quality is poor, at only 2 megapixels. Mind you my camera, that I hope to be using from now on, is an old one, it’s a Kodak Easyshare C530. I’m hoping that not only the quality will improve with its 5 megapixels, but also the occasional reader to my blog, will be able to click on the picture and get a larger image, just as I’m able to do when I view my favourite blogs, namely mnbicyclecommuter, and up in alaska.
The first picture is of my garden shed, which is stuffed full of all the bric a brac of our house, home and garden. I promise to get a shot of inside soon. But I’m quite proud of the organised chaos inside, there is so much inside, yet, I still manage to park and gain access to my Subway 1, for my commutes and leisure rides. In fact I think I’ll go and take that shot now, won’t be a moment.
Some mess eh? But the good news is I’ve just clicked on the image, and yes my reader(s), can get a magnified version if they want/need to. So some progress is being made slowly but surely, one day I hope to be as professional as you other bloggers out there. So be patient with me.
The picture below is of Elizabeth and my youngest son, Tierloch, that I took a couple of weeks ago, when we went for a walk along the canal at Resolven. They are stood on the cycle path I sometimes travel along.
I had a couple of other shots of the shed, interesting subject I know, which I uploaded to the blog, but had to give up trying to manoeuvre and delete, so I’m going to try to upload again and reposition, here goes.
Success! This shows the confined space I have to work in,
you can plainly see the Subway 1, in the bottom right hand
corner, and all the “vital household supplies,” that Elizabeth and the boys, Keiron and Tierloch banish to the shed.
Here’s one final shot for you to look at.
As you can see, a study of the shed door with various jackets hanging on it. These are my high viz jackets, essential now we’re on winter time, pitch black when I leave in the mornings, and the same on the way home at night.
Talking about the shed, it’s long been my goal to use it as my bicycle workshop, and storage area. Keeping all my cycle specific gear, as it grows is proving a nuisance for Elizabeth, so storage in the shed, is definitely the answer. However, as all of you can see, there’s just no more room. Back in the summer, we bought a shed in kit form, that currently is stored in Tierloch’s garage around the corner, we just haven’t got round to laying a base for it, and erecting it, I’m not a good mechanic/engineer etc., I think I’m more of a thinker than doer. Still it’s all waiting in the wings for these major leaps to be made. Time is the key, and who was it that said tempus fugit.
I’m off now to pick up Elizabeth from the haidresser’s.
