Thank you! Thank you! More stories to come and the weeks of prep unfold...
And I carry with me a G11. (One of 3 point and shoots I am taking with me...It's always good to have a backup!) It has served me well. As you can see, I carry it around my neck most of the time when I'm riding. Its off to canon for a much needed service and cleaning, but I wouldn't want to take any other with me. I do like the the G15 has a rapid frame burst option. That is the one thing I would like to have for those action times. I do like the quote a friend told me "the best camera is the one you have with you."
Here's another favorite self portrait (at 65mph):
Cheers to many more pictures to come.
