Two supporters worth a mention are Elke of Eklastic & Geriatri’x‘. A lot of their Fan Of… posts are fascinating & well worth a visit, as well as their posts for other challenges.

I started the series in August 2019 whilst recuperating from a broken leg with R2D2, my Star Wars moon boot, right through to #199 which was Coffee by the Canal.

Coffee by the Canal — Fan Of… #199

Hi all 😁 Feel free to join in this weekly challenge whenever you find yourself thinking, “I’m a fan of…” (see below for how-to).

This week’s Fan Of… is coffee by the canal (& a banana 😋). It was a bit of a dreich day but Stormy & I decided to head to the canal anyway. Although not the best of conditions, the sun came out (kind of) occasionally to brighten the day. I was able to stop long enough to enjoy my coffee & a banana for a bit of energy for the return journey (mostly up hill 🥵).

This week’s Fan Of… is a ride to Cumbernauld House Park in the snow. Having done a quick ride to the shops with my wife, Stormy (he’s my bike) & I headed out to the park for some photos.

Camera Bag Modification — Fan Of… #124

Hi all 😁 Feel free to join in this weekly challenge whenever you find yourself thinking “I’m a fan of…” (see below for how-to).

This week’s Fan Of… is modifying Snappy’s camera bag to fit the Klickfix adapter on my bike. Since we got our Kalkhoff e-bikes, we’ve used them for all manner of purposes; short, local runs, including shopping & runs further afield to explore new places & get plenty of photos for mine & other challenges. From the outset we decided on a handlebar system by Klickfix to carry front baskets for our essentials; for me that’s Snappy with his 18-300mm zoom fitted, amongst other things.

I’d looked extensively at all manner of bags & baskets & settled on one that would comfortably hold him, his spare lens etc. The basket I got had a zippable lid & raincover, the inside also had bottle loops that were ideal for securing lenses. The only downside was that Snappy had to sit on his body with the lens pointing up. This meant that I had to lift him out by the lens which I was not a fan of.

I looked far & wide for a bag specifically for a DSLR, but drew a blank. This led to me modifying my existing shoulder case with a Klickfix mounting plate to fit the adapter 😃
