Word and Image

Archive for December 1, 2011


I carry a camera if it’s possible. That means my heavy Nikon SLR and zoom lens. It can sometimes be awkward and a bit of a burden. On the Five Borough Bike Tour, we were in Queens riding along the bay toward Flushing Meadow and the World’s Fair site. I recall the saying, “Did your mother know that you wore that out today?” It goes along with, “If you’re going out, wear clean underwear.” The sun was high and bright. The old bike shorts were stretched and a bit worn by wear. It’s not PC, but it’s priceless. No names please.
