Airborne

Adrenaline Transmittal

– in this day and age when viral infection can occur through the air between us here’s a photo of a Tiger under full chat zooming through the Dales on a single lane road over the moors. I can hear the theme tune for All Creatures Great and Small when I look at this.

Jump

No shark but maybe Jaws

– with the postponement of James Bond #25 “No Time To Die” until much later in the year here’s a photo from one of the Triumph promotional events with stunt rider taking a Tiger airborne over a burly pick-up trick. Shaken not Stirred.

Live Deliberately

Goin’ off Grid.

This fella has the right idea: get the motorhome packed, hand a ‘sled on the back, and head into the back of beyond until this all blows over. As Thoreau said: “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”

A Room with a View

Parquet Party

– greenery in oils on the walls, wainscoting curtains the walls and an angry red alligator grins on. Gravel trail tool sitting under the daylight beaming through a window. It’s like a cover of Architectural Digest.

Room & Board

Home Decor

– we’re heading into the first week of stay-at-home so let’s enjoy some more examples of storage of motorcycles in living quarters. What we need is a cool city hipster loft with separate ‘man-shed’ floor.

Home

‘Er indoors

– first official day of stay-in-home. Sorting out the interior spaces and corners of the house so we don’t get cabin fever. The bikes of course have their own home, but it would be nice to allow one to stay with us. But I’m afraid that won’t be met with a favorable outcome here.

Mirror Mirror

Reflections…

Photography is like a mirror looking rearward. A view of where you’ve just come from. A recollection or memory of the road previously travelled with experiences to allow the way ahead to be navigated.
