going with the flow.....
I'll snap photos on my bike-commute home frequently. And if motivated, I'll throw a few into a collage with some instagram comments.
Here's one from June of last year. It's all I could really think of in google album where "flow" might apply...
Associated Instagram #bikehaiku
"left the beaten path
off the gravel road - hang right!
TRAIL! after commode....

thought of another video that works with this months theme!

Yeah, muddy. The late afternoon sun intensified the color, too. This is only after heavy rainstorms and high, fast water. Normally, I can see through a couple of feet of water. But that clarity may be due to invasive zebra mussels filtering the water.

Beautiful photo

How do you get such a large image to post here? My Photobucket shots are limited to something like 1200 x ??? pixels. It would be nice to post them larger.

Don't use photobucket? It's kinda a remnant of like, the early 2000s.

Use Flickr if you want a repository of your own photos, or upload it to imgur.

Ah, well... OK. You'll have to excuse me; I'm kinda a remnant of like, the early 1960s.

lol. That was direct from the facebook album I poasted it to after the "hike". BTW, I stared off a bear from that exact spot that evening. I scared the crap out of him when I looked over the rise with a bright headlamp (he didn't see our fire from his approach). But I sure had plenty of advance warning of him splashing his way down the creek.
