Well then, where should we put the new thread? It seems it's either in the Urban section or...I haven't heard back from any of the folks on the Walk a Mile thread.

You knoiw the thought occurs to me that we could keep this thread going to chat more about biking since much of the posts here are from the biking enthusiastic viewpoint:)! I'd like to see a photo sharing thread that is about the photo sharing!

I think we could keep them one in the same. The conversation in the photo sharing thread would eventually turn to biking and back to the photos continuously. I know i would bring it up :lol:

Transportation could be a candidate section or even remaining right here in the lounge :)

Hmm, do you think this thread should be moved or the new one started and just shut this one down or abandon it?

And now the name of a thread..."Bikography -- The Biking Photog In Action!" -- how 'bout that?

Hmm I like that title! I think we should start a new one. We could shut this one down with a link pointing everyone to the new thread. We could also PM everyone has contributed to this thread to add to the new one what they have done here. This way we can color up the new thread quickly and get it moving :)

Well then, let me think of a meaningful thread introduction, and we can get it going!

Yup!

The thing I am pondering is whether to make some kind of guideline: less pic of gear at home, more pics from being "on the road" packing the camera...?

Im alright with both. I enjoy both sides of it :D It would lend itself to a very healthy thread. Keeps people active in participating and sharing. :)

So, here's a thread intro I just typed up...what do you think?

Recently a thread started that was about restoring a damaged bicycle and using it, not just for transportation but for photography. It has stirred up some interest, because a number of folks here are not just enthusiastic about their photography but are active bicyclists as well!

You can see the activity here in the Biking Photog Thread -- we've been having fun!

And so we have decided to start a photo sharing thread that is dedicated to the joining of these two hobbies and sharing the results. This will be a thread dedicated to biking photography for those who, when you go out on your bikes, bring a camera and purpose to use it. This is the place to come back to and post your images.

I personally am pretty pumped about this and have started my own gallery/collection on my PBase Web host, The Biking Photog Gallery (external link).

So, come one, come all, you who love to get out on your bikes -- grab your camera and pack it with you and then prepare to stop and capture those images! On a bike, it is so easy to just pull over and stop, grab your camera and snap photos of things of interest that, if you were driving you may never even notice, have a way of pulling over, or just be too "in a hurry".

So this thread is for sharing those photos...ready, set, go!

I think I can get down with that. I would rather it be more about the traveling type shooting, not about shooting your gear.

I will go and gather a few resources for the new thread as to way to find good places to go biking and shooting at the same time. Stuff you help keep people moving. If anyone else has ideas to add that would be cool I think.

Sounds good, Tony. Now just name it

Get on your Bike #1

The big problem with only having a "find places to shoot when on your bike" thread, is that when winter kicks in, you're going to have very, very few photos. Just keep it open for now, and then fine tune it, if & when it becomes nice and popular.

Looks like a good intro tony. I am working on grabbing a few links to add. I dont know if you want them added in the intro, or if I shoudl jsut add a follow up post with some resources for trip and location planning.

Toss out things and we can either put them in the intro or whatever works, as long as the thread itself is dedicated to photo sharing -- for non-photo sharing you can always post here!

So, as to the section, are we all agreen to Urban Life and Travel?

Yeah, you've got a point about winter! We'll have to play that by ear...what do biking enthusiasts here do about winter? Just park it?
