enough to take my breath away


my favorite image from the bike trip. this one is from our campsite at janes island state park on the eastern shore of the chesapeake. aside from a little cropping, this hasn't really had any editing done to it.

bw, that is quite a pic there! You seem to have a theme of looking up towards the heavens.
I assume most everything now posted will be from the new cam.

Are you talkin about a motorbike or a bikebike? What happened to the bike you were on tour with?

You know I I need a new cam. Can I piggy back on your paypal?? hehehe!

You know this blogging takes valuable time. If we got paid for our hard earned work, maybe we wouldn't have to ask for donations. What do you think if we start a UFB (United Federations of Bloggers union) and demand better wages from our readers?

Yep, pretty much everything that gets posted now is from the new camera. Every once in a while I sneak in something old - the last being "the sky is big on orange grove" from a few weeks ago.

I'm talking about a bicycle - a bike bike. That bike is doing well, it only needed the rear wheel trued slightly after the trip. It's a great bike, but it's an entry level set up and I feel like I've outgrown that quality level. I've put almost 4000 miles on it, so its definitely been good to me. This new purchase will be a bike I can keep hopefully for a long long time.

After the first donation, it's been slow going - I don't have enough money for a bike, let alone another camera :)

We should start a union! Although I really think reading a blog should be free - so I'm not sure where the money would come from. Maybe a government grant?

Pasadena PIO - is there any money out there for struggling artists in the Pasadena city budget?

Thank you all so much! I really like it too, but I have to give some credit to the sky that night :)

Braetheaking is absolutely right. I'm blown away by this. How to make money out of readers? Sell this image for straters or offer it to artists to paint at a cost.

Thanks Lessie.

Babooshka - as you can see from the side panel, for a generous donation you too can get a print of this picture!
