Monroe, GA

Today I launched out on a leisurely motorcycle ride before the 90F heat would hit.  Something, I’m not sure what, led me in a different direction than I would typically go.  Three quarters of an hour later I landed in Monroe, GA, the county seat of Walton County.  It’s an old, charming 19th century southern […]

Warmth of the Afternoon Sun

Hope is like the sun, which, as we journey toward it, casts the shadow of our burden behind us.  ~ Samuel Smiles A couple more from the recent Midtown walk.

Two Wheels

My bud Carl and I had an opportunity to ride the steel ponies the weekend before Easter.  He drove down, trailer in tow, to pickup his amazing Indian Scout.  “Tyra” had been in storage at the Sisco garage since Thanksgiving. It was a great day of riding.  Weather was cloudy and cool (perfect), so we made […]

ATL Architecture

A couple from a short walkabout in downtown Atlanta.  Enjoy.

BART Millbrae Station

Train stations are always compelling to me because of the motion and energy, the study of travelers, and of course, the architecture.  Since this visit was around 10pm, there was very little going on.  However, the geometry and leading lines did not disappoint.

My Eclipse

August 21, 2017 – Solar Eclipse across the USA, with Atlanta having a 98% totality coverage. I was looking down while most were watching the sky.

Farm-to-Table – Asheville, NC

Farm Burger – Asheville, NC

Trying something different, inspired by .  I stumbled across his work several months ago and was mesmerized with the combination of creativity, structure and geometrics, and mystery.  I can’t touch the hem of his Vanoost’s garment, but innovative and imaginative photographic art like his inspires me to try new things and step outside of my comfort zone. BTW […]
