Photographing the Family at the Columbus International Auto Show

Photographing four kids together can be tricky and exasperating, trying to get everyone looking pleasant simultaneously.

The first photo is one solution. Take them from behind!

Seems easier with the distraction and props of shiny new cars at the Columbus Car Show.  Pretty good cooperation. Especially when they weren’t really thinking about me and my camera!   mustangListening to the finer points of this Mustang by Ford

Dog Follows Rider in the Snow

Reblogged from Feb 2010 Snowmageddon. German Shepherd and Biker.
When I look at the comments from four years ago, I see Deb saw a snow heart in the tree. Happy Valentine’s. We’ve had lots of snow this year but never all at once like 2010.

NYC Transportation

Another gallery from NYC trip over Spring Break.

Remember the 25,000 dollar Pyramid Game Show?  A category is on the card and your partner lists all the things that are in that category.  Things that Have Wheels?  Things that you ride?  Things that help you get around.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Forward

Forward on the soccer team?  Forward as in pushy, aggressive?

I’m thinking FORWARD motion cause that is what I came up with as I skimmed through my photos.

The Weekly Photo Challenge seems like a real challenge to me this week. Guess I am taking the word Forward, literally.  The sensation of moving up, plowing ahead, going forward. Here are the photos I chose for the theme FORWARD.  (I like to think a bit of blur illustrates the forward motion!  HA!) 

Trying the new option, well new to me…..click to see the photos.  Let me know if it works.   Continue reading

All Things Harley-Davidson

Meet Donna.  She owns the Spirit Ready-Ride Motorcycle Boutique in Millvale PA.  The location is a repurposed church which used to be an antique store.  I saw it when I left the Millvale Post Office across the street and went in and introduced myself and Donna graciously consented to my blogging the boutique.  They don’t sell motorcycles but everything you need to go with your Harley is available and then some. Repairs is a big part of the business.  The back part of the place is the service area.

Be sure to “like” them on Facebook click here 

Going to return to Millvale soon and add a couple of photos to complete the story. Turns out I missed two important people.

Here is the comment I received from a follower of Ready-Ride :  

Hi Ruth, loved the blog on Spirit Ready Ride but was wanting to see a picture of Matt he is the main mechanic at shop and does a great job and had a big following also. Plus the other owner of the business Honey Sanford would have loved to see her on the blog also. Maybe you could stop back down or grab their pictures and write something on them also because that shop works as a team and they have a great respect and love for each other that’s why it works.  Megan Copeland

 

And yes, that is a Harley-Davidson Black Leather Couch and Easy Chair in the slideshow.

Meet Richard (from Rhodesia) an ironworker who repairs Harleys and rides.
