    I was walking along the beach boardwalk and saw this bike parked. I thought it was a pretty cool shot!

    I narrowed mine down to 3 because it's REALLY hard to figure out which one is the best. Out of the thousands of photos I have, I love these three :)

    The best? That's kind of hard to nail down. Here's a couple I like.

    **** the haters dirty mike.

    I don't have one best or one favorite of my own pictures. They are attached to my memories which makes me a little biased in choosing anyway.






    My two favorites for today.

    I don't know what my best is, and god knows I'm no expert photographer, but I kind of like this one I took:

    It was fairly early in the morning when I snapped this before a ride. The ground was completely covered with flowers. When I returned several hours later they were gone.

    can't say it's my favorite, but for recent shots, it's up there (and i *love* the 135L f/2.0 lens).

    The first two here are the effects of the underground coal fire in Centralia, PA




    This was taken by my girlfriend on our cross country drive from Seattle to New England. It is between Salt Lake City and the Wyoming border.

    I was on the trolley heading to the Comic-Con (NERD, yeah I know) and this guy in front of me started to doze. There was an extra surprise in this photo op so I grabbed my camera and did a ninja pic.

    I was driving home from trail care one evening last spring and there was a thunderstorm heading east just to the south of me. I pulled off the highway and onto an overpass to shoot this with my little p&s digital.



    as my runner-up, there's this one of a piper "playing the sun down" on the summit of Camel's Hump in Vermont last summer:

    Ha before I read your text I was like "Damn that looks like Cantralia"

    My family is from the next town over. My aunt on one side of my family was evicted from that town. I have relatives on the other side of my family buried there.

    Cool. My girlfriends aunt lives in Ringtown, we stayed there for a night then went to check the place out on the last leg of our drive to Providence.

    It is a sad story but a wicked cool place to visit.
