Ideas and Things I Geek Out About.
A QUICK UPDATE:
If you are in the Dothan, Alabama area this Saturday, 19 March 2022, please stop by Landmark Park from 10a.m. to 4p.m., for Spring Farm Day. I will be selling and signing copies of Abandoned Wiregrass, prints, as well as my other books. Please stop by!
I've decided to spice up my photography. Instead of driving around in my pickup truck looking for abandoned and derelict structures, I'm driving around on my new motorcycle looking for abandoned and derelict structures.
Its not a midlife crisis. I've had plenty of those. I know that they feel like. This is completely different, I assure you. Its really a promise kept to myself. I loved motorcycles in my youth, but years ago I quit riding when a family came along. I always promised myself I'd get another one when the time was right. Well, the time was right. Now I know how Ralphie felt Christmas morning when he finally got his official Red Ryder carbine 200-shot air rifle...with a compass in the stock.
This machine has a compass, too. I will endeavor not to shoot my eye out.
For those interested, this bike a Harley-Davidson Sportster S. If you happen to be a motorcycle-riding person and want to follow along with my journeys, occasionally the bike may sneak its way into a photo or into the story. I'm not planning on turning this blog into a motorcycle forum, but the topic may come up occasionally. However, riding around looking for things to photograph is SO MUCH MORE FUN on the back of one of these.
So, when you see new photos of the lost and forgotten places along the South's biways and highways, you know that getting there was definitely half the fun.
Thanks to "Train" and folks down at Harley-Davidson of Dothan for the great customer support.
