In the usual, upright position? Actually just a snapshot of something peculiar that caught my eye.

De Naald van Waterloo / The Waterloo Needle, Baarn/The Netherlands

The Waterloo Needle was placed in honor of Willem Frederik, Prince of Orange, later King Willem II. He was the first to repulse the French attack at Brussels (Quatre Bras) in 1815 and held out so long that the Allies led by the English Commander-in-Chief Wellington arrived in time to defeat the French Emperor Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo. The memorial was established in 1820.

On a bicycle ride I saw this great looking Ariel 350cc motorcycle from 1938.
Of course, I had to stop and photograph this classic. And convert the images to appropriate b&w ...

After a few minutes the owner emerged and we talked a while about motorcycles and this one in particular.
He told me it's from 1938, he bought it in 1973 from his first monthly salary of 600 Dutch guilders.
A modest, very friendly man and a pleasure to talk with him. The engine started at the second kick and sounded great!

Love the Ariel B&W images Luc;  ditto the Waterloo Needles.

A close school friend of mine, now deceased, had an Ariel Arrow in the mid 1960s.  These are therefore also memory lane images for me.  ;D

Thanks a lot Nasos. I was lucky with the uncluttered uniform background and the leaves on the ground.

I love this.  As always, the composition and the processing matches perfectly.

Wow, talented photographer ('s duo ;) ).

I'm glad for the next picture you added that it had nothing to do with her taking this one  ;D
