The Rough Draft

If you can't go through it. Go around it.

This trip was a bit of a different bent for me as it was going to be a group ride and not my usual solo affair. The plan was to get to Dayton, OH from Mississauga in a day with a brief stop at Iron Pony in Westerville, OH about 80 miles from Dayton. I …

I was interested in the Twist 60 the minute I read about it in the Lensbaby Newsletter. I’ve had a Composer Pro mount for a few years now and have a pretty full collection of their lens inserts to go with it. About my only complaint is I wish the focus ring had a stiffer …

On my way back, heading through Kansas I started to see signs for the Mid America Flight Museum in Liberal, Kansas. I’m always up for an aircraft museum and it was right beside the interstate. I’ve been to some cracking aviation museums in the States and The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in Hamilton that I’m …

Before I get into the article proper, a bit about my gear. Travelling by motorcycle limits how much stuff you can carry. For this trip I brought only three lenses. A Sigma 10-22mm f4.5, a Sigma 17-70mm f2.8-4.5 and a Canon 40mm f2.8 ASM (which I never used). Of course my Sigma 17-70mm was my …

I promised Kelly I wouldn’t post this up until he was home. The Schafer Trail. Every bit as freak out scary as it looks. Or maybe it doesn’t look so freaky from above, you have to get on it to appreciate how damn scary it really is. I could barely look left for the first …

My Grandmother as previously mentioned was raised Catholic and for reasons of her own left the church when my Mother was a child.  The local lore on Battle Harbour raised two things.  First off, my Grandfather’s family attended the Anglican Church on the Island and while there were Catholics around, they weren’t in the majority …

As far as days at the track go, it could have gone better.  Compared to the Vintage Race weekend we attended a few weeks ago, attendance was a bit sparse.  I wasn’t aware it was the inaugural event.  The turnout was sparse at best.  By sparse I mean thirteen cars in the main display area …

As I’ve said before, I love old vehicles, the more hand crafted the better.  With vintage stuff a good chunk of the machine is out there in front of God and everybody to see.  If modern machines have gotten wrong, it’s hiding everything under a cover of blacked aluminum.  It reduces an engine to a …
