Flames

Classic car shows must have cars with flames laid down in an outlandishly wild metallic lacquer (much more here)

Cobra 427

Here is the fuel filler of a fabulously red 69 Cobra 427.

Fins!

No car show is complete without the quintessential fins of a 57' Chevrolet Bel Air.

Bulbous Chrome

How can anyone resist 50's era automotive chrome?

Emblem

I went to a classic car show and found tons of wonderful colors and shapes.

Blue Tube

I came across this pile of blue pipes (18" ID) in the middle of a field. The colors and random arrangement of these tubes was irresistible.

Wow

Who needs psychedelic concert posters from the 60's when nature can do this right in your own garden!

Metaphor

Isn't life just like this? You are flying down a road, and it suddenly comes to a stop, you have new choices (left, right, backwards) but you can no longer choose the direction that you had.

Water for Farming

The Central California Valley is covered with a lattice of irrigation canals to support the huge water needs of the agriculture base that is still very prevelant.

Falls

It was the last day in May and all of the falls in Yosemite were still flowing with great intensity.

Everywhere We Looked

Had an exquisite motorcycle ride through the Sierra foolthills including a picnic lunch in the Yosemite Valley. Everywhere we looked were spectacular views and the air was delicious.

Forest Floor

There are spectacular moments of color and form all over the forest floor if you look carefully enough.
