After the rain many of the people bailed out of The Bend In The Road for drier ground. As usual, the dumpsters were full of the skeletons of Easy-Ups.

Yes,  Good clip.  One second of fame is better than nothing.
Get off the stove Grandad.  You're too old to be riding the range.

Love your stuff.  Any chance of getting a few of those last shots in hi-res/larger wallpaper format?  I have a pretty big monitor.

Some of the nicest shots I have ever seen in low light levels and/or night! It is almost like you specialize in that medium or love shooting in those conditions. You have given me a new dimmension and appreciation for that technique. Thank you.

For an amazing group of fotos and descriptions check Mark Savory's Facebook post.

He's a Ducati person with plans for a Ducati four wheel streamliner in the future.

He also restores Ferrari cars. Not the 2000 era cars........historic machines that cause one to slobber.
