Discussion Starter #1 (Edited)
One of my favorite things about the Forums here on our site, is reading the great ride reports with photos from across the US and even some from other countries. I have done a couple myself, and I know it takes time and effort to take the photos, edit them, upload them, and create the narrative.

Long time RoadBikeReview member Scot_Gore has come up with a great way to give recognition to those individuals among us, who have made the effort and shared their riding experience with their online brethren here.

Post #1 has the details, as layed out by Scot_Gore (almost spit up my coffee when I saw the "award" image...)

In short, we have 20 polls with 7-8 Photo Reports in them. Vote for your favorite one in each of the twenty.

After that, we will have a run-off of the top results, and once all is said and done, we'll have a winner. There is a RoadBikeReview Jersey and Bib shorts to the winner. MB1 is working on other prizes as well.

Please take the time to review these great write ups and let us know which is your favorite! We'll leave this up for at least a week as there are a LOT of reports to go through.

The photos range from scenery to people riding to bikes to almost abstract. There are no categories, just vote for whatever you enjoy most!

Thanks for your participation, and thanks to Scot Gore and MB1.

I don't have to win the poll to get a jersey/bib shorts.

Gregg told me that he will send me a jersey/bib shorts, I am very happy to know that of course. In response to his gift, I like to present here some of my pictures taken when I traveled with my wife in Guizhou province recently. Guizhou is the second poorest province ( the poorest is Tibet ) of China due to the mountainous land, small economy and underdeveloped tourism.
The pictures of these wonderful Guizhou kids were taken when we were shooting a large field of yellow flowers at the opposite side of a stream. They saw us and then ran to us from all directions not because of candies (because we were at the opposite side of a 20 meters wide stream) but just to cheer us up.
Looking at faces of these kids (third picture is the blow up of the faces in the second picture), they are so lovely, cheerful, clue and happy. Since we were at the other side of the stream, some 25 meters across, I had nothing to offer them in return to their cheerful smile and enthusiasm, I feel I owe them something after the photo shooting.

Thank you !

Tshirt, SZ, thank you for your response.
I like these shots so much that I posted them all over the forums. I still feel the excitement of meeting those kids, I fired a lot of shots and picked a few that I like, luckily I was using a digital camera, if it was a film camera, I would had ran out of film.
