Hello Jan,

nice bike, I don't think that colour made it to Australia!

Climbed an alpine pass on it?

Hasn't seen the alps yet. But spends plenty of time in the Eifel region.

Very nice pic. It was quite a couple of months of heatwave.

What's Eifelsüchtig about?

and hopefully your CCTs are on your to-do list.
It may be that your whole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

If they are taken with a cell phone, I'm selling my VTR to buy one!!

Must be a very good camera. The clarity is astounding!

I didn't see the strap. The last time I saw a dangling strap was in Miss Latex's Discipline Dungeon. However, I guess that's not relevant! :lol:

Thanks guys,

that's my favourite picture so far too. And yes, photography is another hobby.

Spectators are right, I do use a Canon (EOS 350 D) but in this case, it was taken by my cell phone.

Oh, and Wicky: "eifelsüchtig" means "addicted to Eifel region" - so true. And a nice pun because in German, eifersüchtig means "jealous".

Let's hope for some more beautiful and bright days this year.
