One of my fav pictures ever - on the road west - off of I-10, somewhere between Irann and Fort Stockton.


Aw, back in the days when it was cheap to go west.


Another one of my fav pictures.  Avalanche @ BGWMA.

You didn't get paid for it?  Wow.  Not only did he use your copter, but he took the money you were supposed to get.

I'm jealous.  I don't have an "on the road again" picture like that first one.  I must take one on my next road trip.

My philosophy is that pictures tell a story - you need to take pictures everytime that you stop.  Pictures serve as triggers for the brain for memories.

My problem is I tend to want to stop every quarter mile and take picture.

Brings to mind a Bob Newhart routine about the Wright Brothers and their airplane.
