It certainly is frustrating to see such disregard for other road users. I've come across one or two ladies doing their makeup at lights too, but never a shaver!! Life has become so frantic that people don't have time to do these things at home! Haven't seen a newspaper reader either, that's a new one on me! Beggars belief!

Hi Willow,

A motorcycle is generally a little higher up than the average car, (Some SUV's excepted), so you get a very good view of what drivers are doing, and of course, since I can pass slow moving vehicles in traffic, I get to see many more drivers bad habits than the average car driver who is stuck in line with everyone else. I don't think I could use a car for travel these days, it would be far too frustrating.

Hi Mneylon,

No problem, bike gear is very good these days. With a waterproof Cordura jacket (it has a nice warm lining for the winter that can be removed when the weather is warmer), leggings, handlebar mitts and heated grips, I am well insulated on even the coldest and wettest of days. Read the story about Tales of ice and Motorcycles (link somewhere above), to see how much worse it was in the bad old days though :-(

Before I began to take photography seriously I was under the impression that if I took a shot of a beautiful landscape it would result in a beautiful photograph. I was wrong! I have realised that the camera cannot accurately represent the scene that our eyes can experience therefore we have to work on making the most of the scene before us if it is going to translate into a good photograph. This is the difference between taking snapshots and making photographs. This post sets out some tips for improving the composition of our photographs.

I have often come home from a beautiful place looking forward to seeing the amazing photos I took during the day only to find that they weren’t so amazing after all. Even when I thought I had considered everything – the best light, the composition, the right subject – often, most of the photos were still ‘not quite right’. Recently I have been trying not to just ‘snap and go’ but to stay around and explore the scene to see if that can make a difference.
