my earlier post did use the "looking over the bars towards the front" format, but lacked color.
We seem to be accepting the "looking down at the bars" format, so here's a shot with actual color and sunlight!!



and it's a chance to display one of my handful of Raleigh jerseys...

I'm confused. Is the requirement that the picture contains bars? I prefer without.

true! "hope for the best" is a key ingredient in many of my activities!

for photography, the second step is "take a lot of photos", and one might be worthwhile.

I think this may be the only Behind Bars shot I’ve ever taken. I’ll have to take better pics after being inspired by this thread.
