photo of the week
Every week I'm on the road I choose a photo of the week. Sometimes it's a fantastic photo, other times it's all about what that shot meant to me. Be sure to let me know what you think.
The Katy Trail is a rail trail running 370 miles across Missouri, mostly following the river. Its all flat and easy to ride and most people do it in about a week. This was Sedalia which was at the end of my first day. So very "small town USA" and I met some lovely people that evening. It like so many small towns is really struggling and the Katy Trail is helping to bring tourism to this area. Its a stunning slice of the country and I have all my fingers crossed that towns like this will benefit from this cycling tourism.
Crossing Western Sahara and Mauritania is miles and miles of flat desolate country. This day we were lucky to have new bitumen, althought for whatever reason it wasn't wide enough so every time a truck passed us we both had to get two wheels off the road. I Love how the black highlights the distance and also how desolate the landscape really is.
Jenny - photography lover but someone who hates lugging around HUGE camera's so my images are all from my Olympus OMD or my little Sony digital.
