And Souvenirs

And Souvenirs, originally uploaded by Bog Iron Pines.

I' m going to try my first photo project and make it about Atlantic City. The boardwalk is one of my favorite places to photograph, but the city streets and the casinos are important too, just more difficult.

The casino's don't like photographs and the streets can be sketchy so I'll have to use a point and shoot for them. I would love to hear your suggestions.

The Scooter,

I am very happy with my choice of the Genuine Buddy 125 for the cross-country tour. Despite the problem of a clogged jet near the end, the Buddy performed beautifully over 4,500 miles. I crossed plains, mountain ranges and deserts on the scooter without a major issue. The Buddy's design allowed me ride for up to 8 hours a day without strain because the seat and handlebars enforce correct posture. On a 85 mile stretch through the desert I confirmed the Buddy's gas mileage at over 85 miles per gallon and after 4,500 miles of travel, I still consider the Buddy 125 or 150 the most afforable, fun and reliable vehicle for sight seeing trip, no matter how far the distance. It held me, my camera, and all my camping gear across 12 states and tough terrain on some mountain roads. I expect the scooter to be performing as well as It did when I left after I get it back from the dealership

Go Buddy!

Back to the Desert

and on to Los Angeles. A couple of my friends are working on a movie there called "Monster Mutt". I might be able to hang out for a few days until I can find a shipping company to take the buddy back to New Jersey. He deserves a rest.

Yosemite Sawyer

I thought I had accidentally traveled back in time emerging from my campsite to this scene in Yosemite. His name is Luke and from the spring to the fall he clears the 900 miles worth of trails in Yosemite. Upon giving him my card so that I could contact him with this picture, he said he hasn't seen a computer in months. I would love to follow them back on some of those trails with a camera. Maybe someday I will.

Speaking of Sequoias
