The Delaware Valley Norton Riders held it’s annual “Gathering of the Norton’s” April 19; the turnout was amazing and so was the weather. I took this rather boring shot of some of the bikes using my newly acquired Sony 10-18 wide angle zoom.

I happened to be pixel peeping to see how the lens performs and found this guy waving, so I cropped the shot to show him waving.  He’s in the center of the shot above.

Here’s an absolutely beautiful Moto Guzzi sidecar.

While pixel peeping, I zoomed in on the owners finger on the front fender. I think the quality of the cropped images are pretty pretty amazing.

What is it you ask? This will take a while. My contribution the James’s Weekend Reflections #290. James, has it really been over 5 years since you started that meme?? Incredible!

The reflection is of the walls in my home office. Years ago, when the boys were young, we turned one of the bedrooms into a TV room. We painted it lime green with a black and white stripes and hung the boys artwork on the walls. Now, maybe the photo makes some sense.

Since the boys are grown, I have claimed the room for my home office/photography studio; it is an awesome place to work, I never get tired of it.

So what is making the reflection? Got any guesses? Think geek. Dig down to your inner geekness, way down to that deep, dark corner.

I have lots of hard drives. Lots. So when you get a new, larger drive, what do you do with the old one? I don’t want my private data to get in the hands of bad people, so I disassemble the drives, recycle what I can, but I save the platters. This shot may clear things up. This is the same photo with a different focal point. There are eight 3.5″ platters and one 2.5″ platter (and I still have more drives to disassemble).  They are pretty easy to disassemble, but remember that once you take it apart, you can’t put it back together.

Here’s a wider view of the setup, which hopefully helps you understand the setup.  I use the white and black poster boards for backgrounds for photography.  Simple and cheap.  See the window on the left?  I took this picture from that window.

finally

Signs of life have emerged.  It’s probably not any later that previous years, it just feels that way after the Winter

fess up

I went for a snack tonight and when I opened the cabinet, I realized the content of the drawer was bit ‘excessive’, so I took a photo.

Admit it, you have one. How does yours compare? Fess up and be honest.

There are (in no particular order or preference):

Milky Way, Caramels, KitKat (2 bags), 4 (!) different bags of Reese products (1 bag of candy-covered eggs, two of different sizes Easter eggs, and a few large hearts from Valentine’s day), Raisinettes, Gummy bears, sour Gummy worms, Snickers, Mounds bars, Hershey kisses, York Peppermint patties, 3 Musketeers, jelly beans, assorted chocolate Easter eggs, Swedish fish, and ‘fruit’ slices (no actual fruit content, no fruit were harmed in the making of these products).

What you can’t see is underneath some of the bags are full-sized Hershey bars and a bag of mini M&M’s.

I bet I missed some.

The empty space in the left front corner held a container of corn meal. I had to remove it from the photo because it just didn’t fit the meme.

Maybe I’ll share the closet where we stash the cookies sometime.

I got this shot of my adorable great-niece, Abbie, on Easter. She looks like a natural.

Here’s one of her collecting Easter eggs.  She got the hang of opening them and eating the goodies, not so much putting them in the basket.
