    A fleeting opportunity, gone forever. Perhaps you can edify us with a charcoal rendering?

    And this, ladies and gentlemen, is why one should never leave the house without the 64-count box of Crayola crayons with the sharpener in the back!
    I can't believe how incredulous I am.

    My weekend was not Sunday, Saturday I rode all day, and left half-awake without my camera. I took this today. Forgive me.

    I'm not seeing much adherence to the theme.

    But I didn't take any pictures either.

    Or use cameras with those *&^%^&$#@! proprietary batteries. Once had batteries die on me in Edinburgh, Scotland. But just walked across the street from the flower clock to the apotitary and bought 4 new AA batteries.

    Problem solved. My latest camera a Canon S5 is a wierd beast but it does use AA batteries available just about anyplace in the world.

    I was thinking along the (water) lines:

    I've been riding every weekend, but have not gotten my thinking cap to work on the themes posted. I will say however, I'm really enjoying this thread. I love creative minds. Keep it up.

    Riding to Kansas from Texas the other day I looked down and concluded this was evolution: Paper map; Garmin GPS III+; Garmin 276C.

    Photgraphically not excellent - but it's the thought that counts.

    Everyone was riding around looking for a theme, and it was right there on our tank bag and dash.

    Evolution: The Wheel

    Fred Flintstone invented the wheel,
    the Orange County Chopper boys chromed the wheel.

    The bike could be a little more prominent, but it's still a postcard shot.

    (I hope we get that kind of color in Pennsylvania. We're still a few weeks away from the good stuff in southern Pa.)
