Motorcycle Trip - Day Route: Harrisburg to Philly Loop 1

I'm starting a new category on this blog. I want to capture some proposed motorcycle routes that I hope to take... interest some others to join me... and remind myself of where I want to go. Each trip will include something interesting to see or photography.

This route includes a stop at Round Guys Brewing and Weyerbacher because I'd love to visit both places and can connect them in a loop. I've done the starting out portion when riding to biker breakfast in Ephrata and the last portion when riding the Schuylkill Haven poke runs and love those two portions. Lots of country roads with relaxing scenic landscapes.

Comment if you'd like to join me. This one may happen in July 2014?

Desertlypse IV - istockphoto Minilypse in Arizona

Just did an iStockphoto Minilypse in Arizona (Desertlypse IV). The trip was awesome. The weather was outstanding. It made it hard coming back to the "coming winter" about to hit this area. Aside from great models and locations a few trip highlights included:

  • Being picked up at the airport by SnapFactory's Mark Wallace and having a burger and a beer. 
  • A near-miss with a javelina
  • A pre-lypse hike in the desert (see pics below)
  • Fellow photographers I haven't seen in one year or two years.
  • Harrassing photographers I just met (you know who you are, lol)
  • Phoney mustaches from grocery store kids toy vending machine
  • Hectic, but fun shooting schedule
  • Ending it all, with a sunset shoot and giving a shot at some HDR technique.

Check out my YouTube channel for some cool behind the scenes from the trip.

Here are a few of the MANY shots that need keywording for submission to my portfolio.
