the january blahs

As is typical for January, one of my 3 least favourite months of the year (along with February and March), I've got a case of the blahs. I'm still riding to work most days (not including those that start out with a heavy downpour) and using it to get around on the weekends. But... that's all. I'm not inspired to lug my camera around and take photographs or think hard enough about anything that warrants a post. Right now, it's just plain old transportation.

And I don't think that's a bad thing.

Instead, I'm lucky to have some guest photos from my good friend Melanie. These are taken on a film camera so they've got that fantastic ethereal look.

First up is a wacky ornament made of bicycle reflectors. I think this may be in the centre of one of the traffic circles on 10th (but don't quote me on that).

And second is fabulous winter cycle chic on one of the cold, sunny weekend days we had a few weeks ago. If only there were more like these, maybe January wouldn't feel quite so blah!


  1. The reflector snowflake was on Cypress St... somewhere around 7th maybe? But yes, it was at a round-about. And don't forget to take credit for the second picture... that one is all your doing :)
    And thank you for inspiring me to get out riding (even in the winter!). The challenge of being cute and warm is motivation in itself. I rarely shy away from a fashion challenge ;)

  2. I hear ya!! Except, I don't mind March so much - it has daffodils.
