Growing wild near the house, by the dozens, perhaps hundreds. My mood began to brighten.

Memorial Day

As I motored away, not at all sure where I was headed next, I parked the Road King in the middle of the old one-lane bridge over the Ararat and peered over the side. This river has sustained many a generation here in southwest Virginia. The stories it could tell! This photo is actually a series of three exposure-bracketed photographs post-processed with HDR software (as have been all the pix from today's ride) and some other minor digital tweaking, shot looking straight down into the water from the bridge railing. It's a bit abstract, to be sure, but I like the effect, and the photo reminds me of a very special, soothing adventure ride.

Where am I? I'm not really sure, and it just doesn't matter. Southwest Virginia is such a great place to get lost.

As I was hunched over my tiny 16-inch tripod, shooting the above scene at pavement level, I was startled by voices.

"Are you all right?!?"

"Is he all right?!?"

"Are you all right?!?"

"Is he all right?!?"

These pups, good kids both,
were quite relieved to see that the little old man doubled-over in the road near his motorcycle
wasn't actually in the process of dying or some other such thing. I asked if I could take their portrait:


Isn't this just the greatest photograph? I love it!!

Now then, a question: What the heck are they hauling around, and why?!?
I honestly have no clue, but I'm sure thankful for such a rewarding photo op.

Thanks!


I've always wanted to stop here. Dnutz packed me a delish gormay sammy for my ride today,
and I. M. Akers General Merchandise seemed like a great place to take a lunch break
and wave to all the bikers out and about today.

Yeah, I noticed that, too! When I was a kid, long before I had a car but well into the lusting-for-one phase, I knew I wanted a set of Cragars. Those wheels are still on my bucket list. Someday....
