Photo Challenges

Neutral – 30 Days of Photos Day 22

You just knew that my wheels would make an appearance at some point. Anyway, someone told me this challenge was over, but it turns out they were just yanking my chain:

Speaking of chains, this 30 Days of Photos makes me want to chain smoke. Thanks alot, Ziva and Mike WJ.

    over… it is never-ending! 🙂

  • That is one kick ass bike, Mike! And an awesome photo too!

    Like a bicycle chain, the 30 Days challenge never ends, Mike. It just goes round and round. Man, have you ever had your chain pop off mid-pedal? I almost died once with that. It’s a bitch.

  • Uh oh…now you’re treading into Noname’s pun territory. The spiraling descent has begun…

  • Didn’t anyone tell you? It’s now 300 Days of Photographs. I’ll email you the extended list of prompts.

    (Also, love the photo!)

  • I think you must be getting pretty tire-d of this photo challenge. Or did I mis-spoke?

  • Pat Kumicich

    I love this photo – everything about it is appealing!

  • That’s a great photo, Mike. It works perfectly! The blue stands out so dramatically against the background. Nice!

    never did get to ride my bike this past summer. 🙁

  • When the chain looks like that, you’re definitely in neutral. Good luck getting it back on. (I hate when that happens.)

  • Barb

    Ugh… a slipped chain… you’re not going anywhere soon!

  • Oh man, I hope that didn’t happen on a long ride. Always hated when this happened.

  • We’re in the “put me out of my misery” stage

  • Thanks! It’s my trusted steed.

  • Oh god, yes. And right through an intersection too. I was also lucky and managed to survive, as you can see.

  • It’s a bottomless pit too.

  • Excuse me while I slit my wrists!


  • Haven’t forgotten you! Had a couple of busy days but I will be back as soon as time permits with some graphics. Yanking your chain….funny! Not funny about the slipped chain. Glad you weren’t hurt.

  • Hey, it wasn’t me yanking your chain… I remain neutral!

  • Jamie Baker

    It looks like your chain has been yanked ALOT.

  • Thanks, Pat!

  • I don’t know, suddenly I’m all “geared” up for tomorrow’s prompt.

  • Thanks, Linda! Except for the slack chain part…which was a total setup 😉

  • That’s too bad. I couldn’t live without it. I’ve been riding almost every day since March 🙂

  • It was actually easier to get it back on than off!

  • Nope, it was a setup. I pulled it off for the pic, so I was back on the road a few minutes later 🙂

  • That’s how I feel with this photo challenge hanging over my head, like everyone else here I suppose:)

  • Oh no, like I’ve revealed here, I totally staged the slipped chain for the purpose of the insanity of 30DOP3.

  • It’s best not to take sides anyway.

  • Yep, and mostly by me.
