Tales from the Sidecar II….

This time of year, my husband Greg starts to get kind of antsy.  As the weather gets cooler and the days get shorter, he knows that his days on his motorcycle are numbered.  So yesterday, he decided we needed to take advantage of the extraordinary weather and take a ride in (on?) the Ural – his motorcycle with the sidecar – down to Connecticut to a favorite lunch spot of ours.

I am still getting used to riding along side on that contraption but it is getting easier and easier.  But taking photos from the sidecar has its own special challenges.  One challenge is the fact that I can’t seem to remember that I have a face shield on my helmet and I am constantly banging the camera into the shield.  Clicking away as we are speeding along makes for a lot of blur along the bottom edge of the photo.  I try to compensate for that when I am processing but am not always successful.  And now and then, I get smacked in the helmet by a stray leaf, which is kind of distracting.  But I suppose I will get used to those challenges, too, eventually and taking photos from the sidecar will get easier and easier.


On Main Street, Southbridge, Massachusetts

Somewhere in northern Connecticut.

Any place that has this as a logo can't be all bad!  Good coffee, good food.

On the road again....

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure
of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
Maybe you could space it out better?
