The task also motivates me to get out on the bike, to make it a habit. Otherwise I fear it would be too easy to sit and stare at the telly. I have other jobs to do: cutting the grass, shopping, and cooking; creating new content is a good distraction from the mundane.
There is the challenge of taking a new picture each day, thinking about where I should go, what would be interesting.
I know few will read my words and marvel at the images, ;-) but it's still worth my time.
Without my usual working day it's good to have a focus.
