Ferris,

Really cool running into you and Dnutz today. Thanks for sharing your table. Heather says thanks a lot for the Raps shirt, she likes it and IMO, it looks good on her. I can hardly believe it but the tag was still standing when we returned home.

Tastroman, that was a very pleasant surprise, and a real pleasure. We sure enjoyed the visit with you both. Heather is a gem!

Tastroman, we mentioned during our visit at Rap's how hard me 'n D busted our humps this weekend, between real w*rk and w*rking on our house. I guess they call it "labor" day onnaconna how hard ya have to labor to stay ahead of all the chores and bill collectors!

Anyway, today we finally got a chance to get out on the scoot for a bit (but not before Dnutz repainted the deck railing just after sunup this morning, and I made a quick supply run to Lowes in Galax).

We didn't log very many miles today, but it was a great day to be in the wind nonetheless, made all the better by running into you and Heather at Rap's.

This is on my way into Hillsville this morning, taking the "scenic route" to Lowes:

The compression effect of a bunch of zoom vividly accentuated this morning's humidity:

This is a cool little road, only the second time I've ridden it. I spent about 30 minutes photographing this old building, and only one car went by during that time. Other than that it was just me and the cows.

I'm a sucker for 60's and 70's muscle cars, especially ones that are for sale, like this Chevelle I saw in Hillsville this morning. I'll post up some more pix of it tomorrow.





Think it's a real SS?

Ferris,

Thanks a whole lot for posting the pics of Heather and I, especially the ones of us riding. We have a ton a family pics but since I'm usually the one behind the camera we have none of us actually riding.

Great shots as usual.

You're welcome. I'm particularly pleased with the close-up portrait of you and Heather. I "Orton-ized" it a little bit and did a little blurring around the edges, and like the subtle softening effect. Mostly, I dig the special bond between you and Heather and how easily and well it translates to pixel form. :-)

The pic of you guys leaving and the one as you're headed up the Parkway aren't technically very good (plus they're pretty tight crops), but they were the best I could get from my vantage point and shooting literally on the run.

One of these days it'd be fun to get togther and do an informal photo shoot on the Parkway, some static portrait stuff, perhaps, but also some "artistic" drive-bys.

Re: the FOG tag that was still standing when you guys got home (amazing!), glad you guys got it. How 'bout posting up a link to that thread?

Lastly: Kudos to you, too, for the great photo of Heather in her new Rap's shirt. Remind Denise to tell you sometime how much effort went into finding that particular shirt... ;-)
