Maintain your bike chain by riverlandphotos

Maintain your bike chain

Because if you are grinding up a hill on a busy bridge singing Tiny Dancer at the top of your lungs then downshift, the chain pops off.
Fixing the chain means getting grease on your fingers which doesn't wipe off by dragging your digits on the cement and guard rail. So, you have to find a place on the inside of your favorite linen shorts (the only pair that didn't come from the thrift store) so as not to dirty your camera.
Good times.
Wow, this shot is incredible! I love the blue sky at the top of the frame and the reflection in the water. Fabulous .

@nanderson Thanks. It's what was in my head and I don't know all the words. :oD
@masosy Thanks Kate. Why is it always the last shot, standing next to the dumpsters?

this is gorgeous... (and your comment about bike chains made me laugh... had to fix my son's bike on the go on the weekend and the grease stuck to me for hours - even after multiple washings with soap and warm water)

O thanks @riverlandphotos! This photo was from my engagement photoshoot =]
May 24th, 2013  
Fav, stunning!

Can you ever go out anywhere without something bad happening?! I hope your shorts are ok :)

Beautiful tones in this. I'm sure we must have sunsets here. I just never get to see them.

@Cheesebiscuit haha, thanks! It was just two minutes out of a couple of hours where I saw heron fishing, a turtle in a parking lot, and thought of @northy as I waded through mud under a bridge and later stepped over a wire strung across an old boat landing with a no trespassing sign -- to get the shot. Fun stuff!

@katerinatina thank you thank you Katerina. Immediately to my left were two big garbage dumpsters!

@corgimom thank you! I love your puppy!

@jodimuli I love it when you stop by. Thank you! I took a picture of my bike and thought, what would Joey do! Ha.

@northy thank you! You have to wear bike grease like a medal. Especially when it's a mom medal!

@sugarmuser thank you thank you, Sharon!

@riverlandphotos What was the turtle doing in the parking lot...?

@Cheesebiscuit The tide was high, the moon is almost full, he was in a marina parking lot, about two meters from the water.

Great sunset landscape. The color gradient from blue to gold in the sky is lovely.
May 24th, 2013  
@riverlandphotos Aha. Waiting for the female turtles, eh? ;)

@riverlandphotos By the way, your comment reminded me of the Blues Brothers. "It's 106 miles to Chicago. We've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses."

Absolutely beautiful shot. Been there and if you can't find a stick to lift the chain you need a polythene bag for your hand. :-)
