Think I know where you might be heading... A cohort could get a good shot from below, if I'm right.

I really don't wanna spoil the fun for you guys... but I'd like to play as well!
(And in fact Europe is totally underrepresented since I'm gone... a desaster)

In fact I just want to say that I'm back!
After 319 (in words: threehundredfuckingnineteen) days the agony and suffering are finally over!
It took me that long to get back on two motorised wheels after my crash last September. But I finally managed to get me a new ride - and it is a beauty.
Gonna tell you more about it when it's in the picture for the first time - if you wish that is.

Anyway, passed through the UNESCO world heritage of the Lavaux vineyards on my way back from work (first motorbike-commute since more than 10 months) and took the following shot.



This is looking down the vineyards on Lake Geneva from the close to the village of Chebrex which is more or less above Vevey (that's where the Nestlé headquarter is situated. Nommy. ).
Parked the bike on a little lookout on the side of the road - it's pretty steep there in fact, even if the photo doesn't really show it.

Tell me if that's okay-ish.
If not, I don't care - it was worth the deviation. Jeez, you can't believe how good it feels to be back in the saddle. Alive at last.

Cheers everybody!

ABP, works for me. Congrats on shedding your lack of ride!

Tag away!

Cheers! It was about time.

The new tag..
I went to get it tonight, but it turned out to be a mess as the sun stood directly behind the item I wanted to capture... My crappy wee camera just couldn't handle it and the pctures are of no use.
So I hope it is ok to post a picture of the very same thing that I actually took on Sunday for another tag game.
If that's too much bending of the rules, I'll pass by on my way to work tomorrow morning - and take the same shot again.
Anyway, that's what it either is or will be:



Those are the probably most hated twins of Switzerland.
Why? Well, just look at them.....
But hey, everybody hates them - so everybody knows them. Which means the ads do their job.
They actually advertise a special offer by a big optician chain - buy one pair of glasses get one free.

Anyway, I'll make the tag a bit creative:
My zodiac sign happens to be Gemini. So your task is to find something related to/representing your zodiac sign!

Does your silence mean that you're on it?

Yeah, I found a place that would qualify, but I'm looking for a better one.

Alright, I'm relieved then! Started thinking you didn't like my tag and ignored me.
Well, I'll be heading home soon, so I don't think there will be anything to grab for me tonight... But oh well. Too hot to stop anyway.

I think it's a great tag. Just having trouble finding something that works.

Nice shot.
And nice grab!
Nice bike as well. (Guess I mentioned that before at some point.)

I can think of five perfect single lane underpasses....all near where I used to live in Germany. I can't think of a single one where I live now in the USA.
