LOVE the pics Mike...please keep them coming. I am now conflicted over which reflection pics to order next - I love both of the new ones. I am going to have to find more wall space!

Wow

Just spent about an hour to read this whole thread from the beginning. It was fun to watch the evolution of your photography. You have a great eye, and are a very talented artist. See you Friday.

For anybody interested, here is something I put together after my Alaska/Canada trip, summer 2008.

This is the trip that piqued my interest in photography. Trip of a lifetime.

Good stuff as always Mike, keep up the good work!

It'll take me awhile to get through that report, I'm sure it's a doozie.

Computer issues forcing me to be a straight out of the camera guy these days, which I kinda like. Lazy bastard.





Odds and ends from the Goathead here. Nice to get out and shoot a bit again.

Hope you are well my friend!

Well, not a lot of picture taking lately. I have, however, been working on this beauty:




Since this was taken, I did manage to organize the wiring mess in the headlight bucket enough to get the headlight in place No wonder the headlight is so big. They needed a place to stuff all the wires!! All the controls and mirrors are mounted and snug in their appropriate places. Notice that trickle charger? Well, it has a de-sulfation mode...which is very bad for LiFe batteries like the Shorai. SO, I needed a new Shorai, and a chain, and the gauges need to be mounted and cleaned up a bit.

Oh. So. Close.

Well, Michelle's brother came down with his RV to carry Michelle home to Ohio, so that she could spend her final days surrounded by loved ones. I am SO glad I went to see her last week while she was still in the hospital.

Michelle epitomized the poem below. It is titled "Attitude Toward Death". Rather odd to me, since it speaks more to how one ought to live...


"Live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart.
Trouble no one about his religion.
Respect others in their views and demand that they respect yours.
Love your life, perfect your life and beautify all things in your life.
Seek to make your life long & of service to your people...

...Show respect to all, but grovel to none.
When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life, for your strength.
Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living.
If you see no reason to give thanks, the fault lies within yourself...

...When your time comes to die, do not be like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death,
So that when their time comes, they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over a different way.
Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.

-Tecumseh


Goodbye, Michelle

Your pain will be over soon, and I believe with all my heart that when that happens, the next words you'll hear are "Well done, my good and faithful servant. Come into your rest."




EDIT: Michelle passed away peacefully and without pain very early Sunday morning (Father's Day), holding her father's hand, of all things & was surrounded by her family.
