Although I wrapped up my helmetography project a couple years ago, I’m still snapping! Helmetography was an enjoyable three year undertaking and I learned a lot about photo curation. These days I’m enjoying taking fewer photos more deliberately. You can check out my latest on Instagram.
This year I decided to enjoy autumn.
I appreciate all the other seasons, but I’ve been rudely treating autumn like a red headed stepchild because it led to winter. Winter’s not so bad in Portland; the rain is lovely, but I dread the two days of ice a year, and I would rather have longer days. Whatever, enough chatter about the weather.
It’s a pleasure to ride a bike during Autumn’s cooler mornings and the mild afternoons. This week I pulled over to the curb and took a few photos in the gorgeous light (all iPhone 6s).
April 15 marked the second, first annual Ladd’s 500. In other words, this was the second year Portland cyclists gathered to have good serious fun riding around Ladd’s Circle 500 times.
It was a sunny April day for the event, same as last year, which is a minor miracle given that the usual raininess this time of year in the City of Roses.
I wrote about the rules of the Ladd’s 500 last year, so this year I’ll simply share a few photos I took at the festivities. If you want to read more about the event, Bike Portland wrote about it this year. Roll on!
I’m looking forward to the third, first annual Ladd’s 500 in 2018. Until then, enjoy the ride!
