Allison, why not give it a rest, let Raven have the floor, and maybe we can get to page 5 if we're lucky. You're killing the thread.

What's a photograph without a story?

Whilst seated at the breakfast table eating some oatmeal and raisins and slurping down some pressed starbucks, I read about the next challenge being to photograph your bike in front of an airplane.

Up early, again, (Marshall Dillon comes on at 5am and 5:30am ) I got to thinking about where the planes are. The local airport would be a fine choice as I can get close to the planes. Chain link fences notwithstanding.

Lynn was concerned about why I was leaving the house so early. I hee hawed and such as it was 7:30am and I don't have to be at work until 9:00am. As I was saying goodbye, I told her I was going to the airport in order to photograph Cinnamon Girl in front of a plane. Well, Lynn was thankful as she said that now she would know where I was if I didn't arrive at the office on time. Huh? I laughed as I explained that I was riding to the Merritt Island airport not the Orlando airport!

Given this challenge of photographing my bike in front of a plane, I knew time was critical: for getting the photo posted and also for catching the morning dawn in all its vibrancy. So off to the airport riding south on tropical trail which is a semi-canopied road paralleling the Indian River. The temps were in the upper 70's and the smells of morning dew strong.

I cut through a neighborhood about two blocks from my old Junior High School then turned left at Courtenay Parkway then right into the airport after another 3 blocks. When I got within 1000 feet of the 'gathering of planes' I noticed a piper with the door open all by its lonesome. A gentlemen was performing a pre flight inspection so I continued on to the turn around and scoped out the angle of possible photographs. Seeing nothing better than stopping in front of the fence (with the piper behind it) that's what I proceeded to do. This gentlemen (GERMAN pronounced 'Herman') walks over to the fence where we exchange pleasantries. I asked him if I could photograph his plane. German says sure and we start up about motorsickles, planes and navigation. How expensive flying is now and because of the AUP vis-a-vis politics, I cannot continue.

After about 5 minutes he invites me inside the airport so I can photograph my CG next to his plane or rather without the fence in the way. I had no idea where I could side-stand CG. (But I knew odds where that I could get close, real close!) German drives around to the gate as I ride over to pass through it. I follow him to his plane and the rest is now portrayed in photographs. I got real close!

Here we were; two men shooting the sheet. Looking at our toys and bragging about this and that. I commented to him that he sure has accomplished much in life. Accomplished meaning having engaged in various undertakings and seeing the world first hand. (German hails from Seville, Spain.) I guessed his age to be 61, 62 and he roars back HA! I'm 69! And he happens to be a Nephrologist. Never would I have guessed that, during our 30 minute chat. Funny how something that was once so paramount (time) could become so meaningless.

Agreed. Great story. I was going to get mine next to the old airforce 1 tomorrow (they use it for training), but I think yours is better.

If my bike looks dirty let me tell you why. Out riding today on a road I have not been on before and had not seen another car in about 10 minutes, good road very few potholes. Cruse set around 60, speed limit is 55 lulled away by the peacefulness as I am looking at the entrance of the State Park that I am passing I was not focusing as well as I should have been on the road ahead. Little did I know the blacktop sudenly ends and all I could do was pull in my clutch as I am now on a gravel road. Pucker factor was very high as it took all I could do to keep the bike from fish tailing. Never touched the brakes so traveled a good ½ mile till stopped. Made a u-turn and headed back to the State Park and talked to the lady at the gate and ask her why there are no signs to say “Pavement Ends” she did not know but did tell me that they have had many motorcycle wrecks because of it and that they have had one fatality because of it. I plan on contacting the DMV to re-inform them of the situation.
Now back to the picture, rode for about another hour then remembered the VFW having the sign in front and thought about the picture challenge. I could not remember what the specifics of the challenge just that it was military and you had to be able to read it was all I could think of so here it is dusty bike and all.

Sounds familiar (the pavement to dirt transition)! First time that happened was while a yute driving a Lincoln Continental Mark IV! Most recent time was between Sturgis and Rapid City. Riding to the Elk View Campground from Sturgis on I90, I took the exit ramp then hung a left to take me over the bridge that crossed I90. The road was named Pleasant Valley road too. Well being that the last vestiges of dusk were fading into darkness, and I wanted to set camp before it was totally dark, I stretched the throttle cables and hammered over the bridge. Free and easy rolling! Well just about the time my headlight leveled out I hit a dirt road at 60mph. Dangit! I did just as you and simple let the speed bleed off until I could turn around.

And re the next challenge, the silo thing has always fascinated me. Wish I had some silos around here! I snapped a picture in front of one in GA close to the Andersonville Cemetery...a couple of years back

PS: you bike doesn't look dirty!

4Raven,

Too bad about not pulling over to snap a picture with your ride in the foreground. Beautiful location and such as it is/was. Amazing really how such things of beauty so common to some, are hens teeth to others! For example here is a hen's tooth taken while riding through Illinois last year (9/12/10)...(permission for riding up onto the property was obtained.)

Technically I'm not sure that would be considered a grain silo since most silos attached to barns in this manner were/are used for storing a fermented feed called silage, rather than storing grain per se (oops..sorry...my boyhood days of growin' up on the farm are showing..) but it's close enuff fer me what's next?!

Ha! That's a Florida boy for ya. Is this one a Grain Silo? (or elevator?)
Either way neither of my photos are submissions as they were taken in the past.

What's next? Being as how 4Raven left out the bike in her photo, I think we are still waiting for

I have a suggestion for the thread. How about the op keeping a list of used pic topics on the front page. This way nobody has to cruise through all the posts looking to see if an idea has been used or not, since repeats are not allowed.
I thought of this today while riding along trying to think of another idea for a new pic.

The current challenge is to take a photograph of your bike in front of a VW Beetle. This morning I passing Herbie on the highway! That got me to thinking of photographing a true beetle, not one of these breakdown the day after warranty transgressions. I then started the hunt for a vintage beetle, rolling through two hotel lots and several neighborhoods. Although I found seven new insects, I found no vintage beetles. Heck, I should have turned around and followed Herbie when I had the chance!

Photographing my motorsickle in front of one of the modern beetles turns out to be like water wacking fowl. I just couldn't pull the trigger.

For any of yous on US 301 in South Carolina, there is a nice photo-op. 3 miles south of Bamberg, or 21 miles south of Orangeburg.

Here is a a real VW Beetle wall art photo (not a google maps photo).

The Challenge remains
