Introducing…..

My very first Guest Post!  May I introduce my son, Nicholas:

Amberly South Downs Way 024 

He has just returned home after a placement job in Oxford, and is going to spend the next few months working locally before going back to Bath University in September to complete his final year in Computer Science BSc.  He is quite a good photographer too!

 

On Tuesday I bought a new bike, after my (hand-me-down from Dad) old bike got stolen in Oxford, and the replacement bike Dad dug out for me turned out to be a bit naff.  It’s a Scott Aspect 40 Mountain Bike, with 24-speed gears, disc brakes and front suspension.  I also got some really comfy ergonomic handle bars which provide a nice comfy pad to rest my palms on.  I took these photos on its inaugural trek to Littlehampton.

Second photo is brilliant, how would it look in B&W with the contrast cranked right up?
