Yesterday on the Chester Valley Trail, just west of Wegmans. '84 Fuji TS III. Like Grandmas Lye Soap - "good for everything in the place".




And this morning on the Perkiomen Trail, next to the site of the legendary Philadelphia Folk Festival but, it looks like no traditional festival again this year.
1995 Trek 850, dropped and Deore indexed thumbies. A fun bike. As you can imagine, the handle bars are filled with Black Box Merlot and plugged with wine corks. A welcome restorative after being accosted by steep hills.

I'm late to the party and all those who posted before me helped. I finally got my Behind Bars picture to post.


This was on a dirt bridle path with my Schwinn Continental.

Absolutely. I had just picked it up from a boulangerie, just in time before it closed at 13:00 (phew!) and was looking for a spot to consume it, together with the Camembert, which I also managed to secure. When touring, one has to make do with what one can find.

Well, you certainly made do! Touring’s all about the experience, and topping off on premium fuel is always a highlight here.

That housing came from Porkchopbmx.com. It is a bit darker/cooler than the purple decals on the bike, but the bike is 33 years old and was ridden quite a bit. Could be a fade thing?

The guy that runs that site has a couple different purples, I think. I believe I chose the "grape" one.

Finally got my 87 Schwinn Voyageur out for a long ride. This bike got its second frame up rehab last winter, mostly focused on sealing the paint/patina better than the first time. A few other odds and ends. A fine ride.

This shot was on the Schuylkill River Trail on a section where it used the old tow path of the Schuylkill Canal, just west of Port Providence. Nice ride in the shade. Reminds me of the places non-fixie gets to ride all the time. Jealous!!!




I could use some lessons on depth of field and getting that distance in focus too, eh? Maybe I should go to Holland.

if that was a real request for info, the only way to increase the depth of field that I know of is to use a smaller aperture... i.e. go from f4 to f8.
In some cameras, there's not much control of aperture. A work-around is to increase the ISO number, a.k.a. the sensitivity to light. This will force the camera to use a smaller aperture.

There may be some benefit to forcing the camera to focus on some point in the distance.

In addition to Steve’s fine answers

A short focal-length on a small format camera would help, if you used a smart phone camera you already have that.

You could also back up a little and crop into the frame. Depth of field gets a lot shallower as you get closer to the subject so backing up a little can make a big the difference.

Thanks for the ideas. Yes, this was taken with an iphone6 which likely has features I've not learned yet. And I was right next to the water with nothing to prop the bike up with, no backing up to take a photo that could be cropped. I was mostly focused on the very nice ride and not pitching the bike nor the phone into the canal. Well, youse all get the idea.

A Sunday ride on the bridal path, Le Tour Luxe this time.



Fenders and dirt paths can be a problem. I did get a stick caught in the front fender that curled the fender up like an inchworm during the ride. It was only a few minutes to straighten it back out and re-insert the breakaway for the strut mount. Sometimes plastic is good.
