The only thing worth noting about yesterday's commute to work was my choice of cameras. You may remember some months back when I purchased a Contour Roam video camera and promised to make movies. Well, I quickly learned some things. Making videos takes time, patience and a fast Internet connection. I have none of those things.
The Contour Roam was also the wrong choice. I wish I had gone with the GoPro instead. I think the Contour mounting method is flawed and leads to an unstable camera that (for me) produces nothing but blurry, shaky, headache-inducing video. I have tried three different mounts so far, and none have worked for me. I may try the helmet mount, or I may just cut my losses and sell it.
Anyway, yesterday I tried using the still picture setting for the first time, choosing to take a picture every three seconds. I thought it might be cool to take pictures during the entire ride hands-free and be able to choose the best ones later. Unfortunately, all 3000 of them sucked.
Here are a few that sucked the least.
|We had a little fog on the hill, making for a dark and creepy start to the ride.|
|Riding through the big city.|
|Heading up the only tough climb of the mostly downhill ride.|
|Wild Oaks Park|
|Near the dam.|
|More trail near Lake Natoma.|
|Obviously retired. Lucky bastard.|
Lets just pretend there are pictures depicting the 10 miles of flat, boring bike trail here . . .
|The Temple of Doom.|
So there you go. A 39-mile commute to work in pictures.
