Insomniac photographer

I brought my bike to work a couple Sundays ago. I work 2-11pm and I can get in a good ride at dinner time. When it was time to go home, I was not tired and the garage just looked like the perfect place for a photo shoot.

Nice pictures! I especially like the city scenes. I want to know more about the helicopter landing area. I think you chose the perfect bike for night time rides, the paint is glowing.

Looking at all the stickers on the lockers is a fun way to guess who belongs there. Most of them are sort of fun... then there is the lame political sticker. I bet I know which one is yours.

i used to dabble in the somnambulist photography as well.









at a certain point (especially in the summer), you just have to hop back on the bike, ride to the park, and wait for dawn...

I really like dawn anywhere in Washington. Most everywhere you look its awesome. I like all of the pictures in this thread, and eating at dick's. I live only a few miles away from one and I have to fight the urge to eat there all the time. I am fond of the color of your bike BluesDaddy.

Thanks, folks.
In the outdoor shots, I used my LED headlight to spotlight the bike.

Joel,

I've been away from NH for nearly 2 weeks and have had very few "Alerts" from your employer on my iPhone App. Your great photos are proof that the news has been slow in NH!

I like the one of the Hookset Tolls. I'll be through there about midnight.

The police action was typical Saturday-night-after-barhopping idiots fighting. The helicopter landing area; back about ten years ago we had a helicopter which would occasionally land in that lot. The signs are a relic of that.
