Here's a few more.

Winter in Oregon

Posted Image

Driving through Crater Lake in Southern Oregon. This is in mid June, believe it or not.

Posted Image

One very scary bridge that stretches from Oregon to Washington right at the channel to the Pacific Ocean in Astoria Oregon.

Posted Image

This fine looking F-100 was sitting outside the Harrah's casino in Cherokee NC.

And here is more examples of my driving/photography skills. My wife hates it when I do this. This is along I-70 in Utah going through Devils Canyon.
Posted Image


And then on the same trip on I-70 in Kansas we came across this OCC chopper for the U.S. Army.

Posted Image

Love that photo of I-70 , been through that stretch alot in my Western Star doing the Shakytown-Denver run, the "San Rafael swell" area is awesome, man i miss the road lol. great pics.

This is from Cadilac, MI, just north of Grand Rapids. I was there fro a Vintage Thunderbird Club regional meet in 1998. This is my car and is my favorite picture if it. The owner's sister took pictures at night, her kids would wet the ground. I visited this place in 2005 while on a business trip, but not sure if it is still there now.

This looks like me after I finish a model car in 1:12 scale.

Some very cool stuff. I took these in 2010. This was the old Bancroft Chrysler-Plymouth on Bancroft St. in Worcester, Ma. They took down the late 1980s remodel and have since covered this back up. The building is now apartments.

The Wayside Inn grist mill in Sudbury, Ma.

This was built in 1922 by Henry Ford (yes, that one,) who owned Longfellow's Wayside Inn at the time, and most of the land that is now called Wayside Village, on the Marlborough/Sudbury line.

It's interesting when you've been taking pictures for several years how certain themes and elements begin to appear over and over in the work. I think this is how you've trained your eye to find what YOU like for subject matter.

In my case it is rust and abandoned roadside stuff.
