My home town PO. The light really reflected off of the building. Maybe you photo types can explain how to prevent this from happening. I had it set to AUTO exposure.

Best fix for that is to get closer to the bike and use fill flash. There's too much conrast in that scene for even a good film to handle.

Good luck on your next shoot.


BTW, I like to cross the Delaware in your town of Riverton. It's the only free crossing I could find. Dingman's is pretty cool for 50 cents tho. . .

It WAS a post office. The railroad depot in Kelso is really nicely restored and interesting. There's a great route from Vegas to Palm Springs through here.

A bit of a let down.I rode like crazy through the rain to get there.
I went to the Santa Store to get post cards at the minute they had just closed.They almost didn't let me in.
Later I told my daughter that I did not think it was the real North Pole.
She asked if it was white.I said,"no".
"then it was not the real North Pole".

Just back from Prudhoe Bay, IMO it was really worth the trip, AK is a beautiful place & you need lots of time to take it all in. I'm looking forward to returning & exploring some places i didn't have time to ride.RIP Ron Melton
