getting this photo was so random ..

i've had major problems with my internet provider and reached a really low point after a couple of non productive telephone calls during the day .. felt like crying ..

so i phoned my friend melissa and asked if she wanted to go down to picton for a coffee ..

i put the fisheye lens on the camera .. which was unusual as i havent used that lens for ages ..

we were driving down the road and her husband fred was riding his bike up the road .. we stopped and had a chat ..

i immediately thought of the transportation challenge and took a few pics ..

the coincidence that i had the fisheye lens on just blew me away .. no other lens would have worked as well ..

I very rarely set things up for the challenges so i was very grateful this one fell into my lap .. and its had very little editing except for intensifying colours and contrast ..

i have no idea how it will go .. hopefully better than my flip and bend .. lucky i'm not as attached to the outcome with this one as i was with my flip and bend predator .. :)
