Bobber Republic = Motorcycles As Art

My friend Steve, a man of many talents, builds motorcycles for fun.  This is a beauty he finished a while ago and shared the photos. I pass these photos of the Bobber Republic on to you to gaze at this sweet work of the motor art.  There is so much detail and finesse in some machines…ah the open road.

Yesterday Paris Spring – Today Minneapolis Snow

Just want to give you a perspective if you are in another part of the world where it’s warmer, sunnier and not snow covered.

Enjoy!

April 42014 After the snow storm

Now where are the crocus, the tulips and all those flowers associated with spring?

Last night a storm came through, rough going this morning for the commuters.  Jack knifed semitrailer trucks or stalled semis on freeway ramps.  Very slick roads caused a long and treacherous commute.

How’s the weather where you are?

Paris in the Spring = View from the Louvre Gardens

Paris In Spring Original photo © CKatt 2006

This photo was one of a series that I took on a trip to Paris in May of 2006.  There are many gardens and parks throughout Paris, which are historical, classical and beautiful. (400 by one count) Here’s a view from the Tuileries garden looking towards the Louvre. This photo was taken with a 1980 model Olympus travel camera with a built-in wide angle lens.  It’s one of the last series I shot with a film camera.

Temperature is in the 30s today with a prediction  from 6-12 inches of snow this evening.  Ah, spring in Minnesota.
