    That Vincent is probably better than new! Very cool bike, and very nice shots. Where was this?

    Isle of Man TT Races as it unfolds!

    Great thread, Tony. Thanks for sharing and I can't wait for the updates. I visited the IOM last year during for a work function (I work for a motorcycle magazine in the US) and got to ride around at normal speed and it was amazing. I'd love to enter the race one day, but the logistical...

    Costco D700s.

    I used the cashback reward when I bought my D300 and got a smokin' deal. I had to wait 90 days or so for the money, but it was definitely worth it. My Canon friend just bought a 5D MkII with the offer and apparently the money is immediately sent to you via paypal. Can't beat...

    Brooklyn NYC School Bus Crash

    You think that driver will be bumped down to "Junior Varsity?"

    Her Darkness

    I pee'd my pants a little after looking at this pic, so mission accomplished! :biggrin: "Boring" and "tame" are the last words that come to my mind when I see your work. I love how powerful and moving they are.

    World Super Bikes, (Raceday)

    Awesome shots as always. I LOVE the shot of Cal! I just did two days at my local track on the CBR1000 and I definitely find what he's doing on that bike completely amazing. The fact that it was raining the entire time just makes it that much greater. Wow.

    Tips for shooting in broad daylight

    Don't know if this belongs in the lighting forum or not (my apologies if it's in the wrong place), but here's my deal: I'm going to an outdoor festival tomorrow and want to snap away. Obviously the lighting won't be optimum (to put it mildly) as the sun will be right overhead. What are some...

    D300 Price

    I bought my D300 with the offer (thanks Lanthier!). They make you wait 90 days before they cut you a check just to make sure you don't return the item. Instead of buying from a store with the deal, another option is to search the classifieds and if you see something you...

    N A S C A R

    Great shots. Shame it was NASCRAP. Sorry, I've been a motorsports fan all my life, both in four wheels and two wheels, but I never caught on to the NASCAR scene. Oh well.

    Anyone still Skype?

    I'll just add to the already positive reviews. I use skype as well to talk with my best friend who's currently living in S. Korea. Part of the reason he's been buggin me to get a Mac is for the video conferencing and I'm glad I did. No lag, video ain't bad, and it's free from computer to...

    Summer Olympics Withdrawal: Will YOU Have It?

    I'll miss it. I've played sports all my life and consider myself a competitive person who loves the thrill of going out there and "doing battle." To see those athletes perform at a level that I could only dream about...and all in one mindboggling to me. Sure there's always going to be...

    Redondo Beach storm with 17-55

    What the? I live down the road in Torrance and had no idea about the storm. Then again, I was probably fast asleep anyway so it wouldn't have made any difference. lol

    My Son Jumped off a Bridge

    Kudos to your son to have the cojones to do that. I sure as hell don't. Nor do I have them to skydive, either. Do I want to? Sure. Am I going to? Probably not. I've tried indoor skydiving and that was great. The real thing scares the begeezus outta me. I guess that parental instinct never...

    Yep, dog meat. Anywho, for a vacation destination you can't go wrong with Europe. Italy, specifically. I know everyone says it, but it's for good reason. It's just gorgeous there. Every time I go (I've only been twice) I fall in love with it more and more. Not to mention all the photographic...
  22. Globetrotter


    Yea, China is even cleaning up the place to appeal to westerners. They've "relocated" lower class citizens away from Beijing so as to not offend foreigners and--get this--even mandated that local restaurants temporarily stop serving dog meat as it might offend western tastes! Go China!

    Anyone going to Olympics in Hong Kong??

    My best friend, who is currently living in Seoul, was going to go, but he's currently blacklisted from entering China (long story) so now I can't live vicariously through him.

    Advice Needed for New Camera Purchase

    You asked for it... I saw the photographer standing in that turn, so naturally I had to ham it up for him. I've drug elbow before, and I was determined to do it this day, but in the back of my mind I kept thinking "Don't wad up a $40k bike!!!" So this was the only time I got my elbow...

    It's time to see YOU one more time

    Advice Needed for New Camera Purchase

    Welcome Rob. I'm pretty new around here myself and I like what I see from the Cafe so far. Seems like everyone here pretty much got you started.

    What other hobby do you like to do than photography?

    Motorcycles are my first love, though I don't know if I can call it a hobby anymore since I get paid to ride them (hence, my avatar). Other than bikes, photography and the gym I'm pretty much a bum and lay around the house most the time. :tongue:

    What image are you using as your DESKTOP WALLPAPER at this moment?

    Oh, you read the magazine? Awesome! Hopefully my addition to the team hasn't tarnished the magazine too much. :tongue: I love the GSX-R750. One of my favorite bikes of all time. I'm currently tootling around on a 1000, just because I've been riding small bikes for awhile. I needed to feel...

    That was amazing. Thanks for sharing those with us. I've only been to France once and didn't have a very pleasant experience. Your pictures are seriously making me consider giving that country another try.

    What image are you using as your DESKTOP WALLPAPER at this moment?

    Ha, I've never ridden a bike so slow and yet had so much fun. Usually when i'm riding bigger bikes on the track I'm just focusing on staying alive, but with this thing I have the throttle to the stop and I have time to think about what the bike is doing, what things I can change, how to setup...

    The life you lead and the life you thought you'd lead

    Hmm...I'll give this one a shot. I'm 23 as well and ten years ago I thought I was going to be in the NBA one day (I loved basketball as a kid). The older I got the more I realized that A) I wasn't tall enough. B) I didn't have the right skin color and C) I was good, but I wasn't that good. So...

    What image are you using as your DESKTOP WALLPAPER at this moment?

    I just changed it to this yesterday. It's "my" 2008 Kawasaki Ninja 250 racebike that I took for it's first race this past weekend. I say "my" because it actually belongs to Kawasaki, they're just letting me race it for a story i'm doing (I work for Sport Rider Magazine). So before I took it out...

    Pelicans are brave little guys...

    So there I was down at the beach before the 4th of July fireworks were about to go off. I see a little boat on the dock and thought it'd make for a cool pic. As I'm walking down the dock this little bugger comes out of nowhere. He just happens to frame himself in a neat spot for my shot so I...

    Awesome shots. I'd love to see more shots in the rain if you have them, especially ones where you can see their eyes through the clear visors.
