I took part in yesterday’s Basel Photography Meetup. The topic was construction sites. Quite a challenge. And inspiring to see what other photographers see at the same location. My snaps: My fave of the day is really for my collection of bicycle content. Velo content for the win:
Weather was better than forecast. It’s been fairly dry. So today’s rain was a welcome change. But despite dark clouds and rain symbols on the Swiss Meteo app, the rain was over by lunch. Time for a bike ride. WOD: I cycled to Rheinfelden at a leisurely pace. Grenzach-Wyhlen – Herten – Rheinfelden – Kaiseraugst […]
