    Photo Assignment: Weekend 9/15/07

    OK, let's keep this rolling. Last week's assignment turned out great, with quite a few people willing to share their work and give all of us an opportunity to learn a thing or two (myself included).

    Let's review the rules:

    --Photos have to be shot this weekend, Fri, Sat, or Sun.
    --You must provide the EXIF information if asked (we'll help you, if you'd like to know how to get it)
    --No photoshop alteration (we're looking to improve your skills with your camera, not software)
    --Your photograph must adhere to the theme, which will be described below.
    --Post your photos in this thread only. DO NOT start a thread in reply to this assignment.
    --Post only one photo per post, so that commentary can be easily provided for that photo.
    --And, the most important rule - Have Fun! We're looking to spread the joy that many of us derive from taking pictures, particularly ones that tell a story of some kind.


    This week's theme: "Where I Want to Be."

    This could be a location, a stage in life, what you want to become. . . . Or many other interpretations. (You have NO IDEA how hard it is to think of a theme!) I hope it is open to innumerable interpretations, motorcycle and otherwise.

    Photography ends Sunday at Midnight. Please post your photos no later than Wednesday, midnight--try for earlier.

    I am in need of a celebrity co-commentator. PM me if you are interested. I'll be at the Beemer Bash until Sunday, so you won't hear from me until then.

    Good luck and happy shooting!

    Excellent! Hopefully I can find a good shot this weekend at the Beemers and Brats Rally. Thanks for doing this - helping me learn to take better photos!

    DOH! Well, then I guess I have nothing to submit for this week.

    I had a great upstate-NY ride this weekend, but no pictures... I took the camera along, but didn't stop to take it out!!!

    Start out in Delmar, NY and ride down to the Pepacton Reservoir (ride the reservoir twice) and then head back to Beff's in Delmar for a beer! About 4.5 hours on a great late-summer day!

    Here is a link:

    This ride puts a smile on my face every time...

    I can make a GPX if anyone's interested.

    Sounds like we should have run into each other.. Sergio, Orlando and I met in Wurtsboro and flew up 17 to Deposit NY, up rte 10 past Cannonsville reservoir to the Town of Walton, then to Downsville and rte 30 up to Margaretville past Pepacton Reservoir, stopped 15 minutes at Tesslers in Denver, down to Fleischmanns, 28 to 28A past Ashokan Reservoir, then made our way down Mohonk Road through Accord and back to Ellenville.. We barely got off our bikes and didn't take pictures either. But what a day!!

    While I was not able to ride this week end, I did go to the Zoo, where I volunteer my services in many occasions. I can tell you, I do NOT want to be in this cage.

    Where I want to be!



    Sometimes where you want to be is a stage in life.

    That's a great ride! You must have gotten an early start.

    I bumped into three guys (Harley, Honda and a Suzuki?), and rode with them for a little while. From the plates, they were on a trip north from NC. Honestly, they were only going around 60mph, and I was feeling the need to go a little bit faster. (no disrespect, guys)

    I was at the reservoir somewhere between 12:30pm and 1:30pm.

    The Pepacton Reservoir is the first place where I really discovered ÔÇ£twistiesÔÇØ, and IÔÇÖll always hold a soft spot for it.

    Great spot, isn't it?!?! Very friendly people out that way, too. I've yet to have an unpleasant interaction with anyone out there, and everyone wants to talk when stopped to refuel…
