This lovely and clear blue sky was taken during hubby's trip to Nevada...where else but Las Vegas! He met up with friends and has been posting photos of him playing on slot machines, world renowned hotels Bellagio, MGM Grand Las Vegas and the Vdara Hotel and Spa...
Can't blame him, what else to do in sin city but be merry, be a glutton, be greedy...I'm not tolerating this though, I do hope the hubby did everything in moderation and no to red light districts! Hmph!

That's mostly because trucks travel more conveniently at the wee hours of the morning --- no hassles of travelling around smaller vehicles, not much pedestrian or totally none - means less accidents and faster travel time too. The sleepiness however is a big factor. It is never a good thing to travel when one didn't have enough sleep earlier on. So we had to request daddy to hire a number of drivers to relieve us of the worry regarding his safety on the road.
In those years I got acquainted with a lot of parts truck though earlier on I knew some auto, bicycle parts - because whenever daddy tinkers with them, I get to be around and familiarize myself.
Of course, I learned stuff like disc brake, alternator, bug shield and heater hose...that's one of the most common sources of coolant leaks in vehicles. These hoses allow hot coolant to enter and leave the heater core to heat the interior of the vehicle...they tend to be brittle and then they crack. I remember dad has to have those as spare ready especially when he's out to travel long distances. It was his habit of checking that everything is in place before leaving and travelling.
We had to sell the trucks when daddy got older...I'm sure he had his own memories of seeing different scenes and fields, meeting different vehicles along the way, having his own drive bys. The only difference with our drive bys is, I get to capture what I see with my camera, his; etched in his memories.
This is a true story written for a Bucks2Blog campaign .

I haven't been successful with tiltshifting photos taken on eye-level...I make better ones when the photo was shot from top view. What do you think?

Perhaps you are looking to have sort of like a family rest house in a nearby town or country, a place where you and your family can hie off to when you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. After all, booking a hotel room during the holiday rush is never easy. With your own place, you could get to relish your vacation to the full.
At any rate, it would be a good idea for you to look for an investment real estate broker who could provide you with the best listings in a particular area. You should also look for someone who could give you the best prices available and would ensure that they have your best interests at heart and not simply out of their need to rake in commissions.

Probably the most featured form of water in this blog, the Danube. There's a window reflection too, I was standing by the train's door when we passed by....just had to click.

So far I've sent about 10 of my personal printed postcards to friends. It's a great way to send as personal gifts to family members especially if the print are those of my kids. I print landscape photos too and I send them out as giveaways to readers.
You know, it's always been my dream to see my own photos on those postcard stands...I just don't know where to begin. So this is actually my first step to do that...hopefully. :)

And so's the soil.
Can't tell why the field has those different colors appearing in stripes but surely looks pretty...

Yellow, yet nothing's planted yet. Travels that are as far as 5 hours are worthwhile with scenes as refreshing as this.
Taken 2 hours away Nürnberg (perhaps just when the train left Passau).

That's the difference that one second makes.
Still from the Vienna to Nürnberg series.

And of the work of his hands the expanse is telling.
A camera is also a fitting gift to be able to capture God's creations so we can savor the moment years from now. It is also a great gift to live when knowledge is so easily attainable; you can just go online to further your education. I'd definitely would take online photography classes to keep current with the latest techniques, given time and the chance to do so.

One of the many snapshots I took on our way to St. Pölten. It was the early part of summer so the fields were green and yellow. Some are posted here too.
Will show more soon :)

The picture was taken June 4, 2011, but the weather today is exactly like this. It's cold and gray and it is July 13 - summertime - here in the San Francisco Bay Area. And yes, I am wearing a sweater :)

This street scene made me nostalgic for my country the Philippines. I remember as school kids in uni hanging out on the streets like this while waiting for the bus/tricycle or just hanging out with friends. And this is under the scorching sun too.
Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico, June 2010.

I saw this guy as the train left the station, he seems to be deep in thought. The train station is elevated and he was looking down on the vehicles below. There was a metal divider by the tracks that I caught on cam...the man was standing on the other side of the platform...

Took out my camera to give this sunrise a shot. The train leaves Chennai Central at 6 a m, when it is still dark outside. This shot was taken some 45 minutes into our five-hour train journey....
Chennai is the capital city of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu, located on the Coromandel Coast of the Bay of Bengal.

It was one of those days that the train windows were scheduled clean. :D
An almost spring feel but the photo was actually taken sometime in January. View of the Danube and a bridge were the tram going to our place runs by.
A post for Watery Wednesday.
