another motorcyclistHi Keith, here is another motorcyclist enjoying some curves. As I concentrated on having all the curves in focus, I chose a high aperture and therefore the sharpness of the moving motorcyclist is not great because of the shutter speed. But there was just no time to ajust... as so often. I tried to sharpen him a bit.

dry stone wall in the JuraI decided to post this S-curve" as well. It shows a model dry stone wall at the entrance of a village as an advertisement to re-learn the old trade of building dry stone walls. The Jura is very, very rich in stones and the farmers used to build enclosures and boundaries with those stones. It is quite an art to build those walls to last without mortar.

I added this totally unspectacular S-curve in contrast to the "motorcyclist's delight". I now see S-curves everywhere!

A Trio of bike racksA different perspective on S curves. Wasn't sure if this counts but I was trying to capture the sense of the S leading the eye into the frame with the 3 bike racks.

An evening stroll through the desert gardenThis is one of my favorite places on campus. Hopefully the combination of the light, the orange flowers and the S lead the eye into the frame.
