Today we did not shred.

Nope. Today we definitely did no shredding.

But, we rode.  That we did.

However, instead of covering a ton of ground during our two-and-a-half hours out in the woods together this morning, Ben and I rode maybe three miles.  Maybe.   But, it really doesn't matter, because they were really interesting miles... We'll call it a Photography Ride: a ride where both riders take their good cameras along, and there's no other objective during the ride but to use them.

I learned a lot on today's ride.  It was really interesting for me, a very rudimentary photographer with only the most basic equipment and skill, to listen and learn from Ben about things like lenses and lighting, foregrounds and backgrounds... stuff like that.

We both took a lot of pictures today, probably several hundred each.  These are a few of the best, I think:
