That’s what the bumper sticker says on the fuel tank. And it looks like this Harley Davidson has seen quite a bit of road in its lifetime. Photographed in Branford, CT.

On the way from Bozeman to Missoula, near Phillipsburg, I  came across a junk yard full of cars and old mining machinery.

Faster, Higher, Bigger   3 comments

I had the privilege of seeing last week, from my window, three icons of modern day transportation lined up next to each other: The Concorde (fastest passenger jet ever), the  Space Shuttle (highest altitude orbital space craft ever), and the Queen Mary 2 (largest Ocean Liner* ever built):

Concorde, Space Shuttle and Queen Mary 2 next to each other on Manhattan's Hudson River bank

The Space Shuttle is on the deck of the aircraft carrier (now museum) Intrepid, while the Concorde is on a pier right next to it, in between the Space Shuttle and the Queen Mary 2.

*There are now some cruise ships that are bigger than the Queen Mary 2, but she remains the largest Ocean Liner (a vessel that has a set route between two ports – in this case Southampton and New York – and is built to withstand rough seas).

Where cars go to party in New York City   2 comments

I took these shots while walking through my neighborhood in the evening, struck by the fact that these sights are pretty rare in Manhattan.
