Lindsay Kay

So, as you can see from the majority of my pictures...I don't generally take pictures of people that I'm not related to. This past weekend, I found a willing, and every able, subject to take pictures of. These first five pictures are ones that SHE HAS EDITED HERSELF...she deserves the EDIT CREDIT.

I've taken the liberty to do some editing myself...(definitely not as good as hers and I'm not sure how 'color-correct' my computer monitor is). As you can see, I had a hard time narrowing it down.

In addition to being a great model, she's a talented photographer and writer. You should check out her blog if you haven't already. She has two blogs one for everyday stuff and one for her photos.

Elephant Graveyard...

One of my favorite things to take pictures of is Old Cars. I found a place just outside of Cortez Colorado that I endearingly refer to as the Elephant Graveyard. There are 'No Trespassing' signs posted along the perimeter of the property, and a huge for sale sign at the front gate. If I had the money, I would buy the place.
Don't worry, I did ask permission for the real estate agent to walk on the property...she said I was more than welcome to do it but not to be surprised if a man with a shotgun approached me. The reward was worth the least for me.

Last time I passed through, I took the picture at the header of the page...this time I took a similar one...amazing how the sky can change the mood:

Along with some more of my favorite car from different angles.

Where's Waldo (aka Travis)?

I don't want you to get too bored looking at pics of the same car so I've added some more:

A little bit closer to the Utah border is a tree sitting by itself in the middle of a field. It's a lot prettier now than it is in December.

It makes you wonder what other little treasures can be found throughout the United States...take the time to visit the small towns!

We had a summer sales retreat up in Dear Valley this week where we road the chairlift and mountain biked down. It was the first time that I had ever done it. It was amazing. To anyone who has never had the chance, I recommend that you give it a try. Here are some of the scenic pictures from the day.

You can't really see it in the picture but if you look down at the three small ponds, there is a neat little gazebo right in the middle of them.

This was the little trail that wove in and out of the trees. It was the perfect day to ride.

This is was my trusty companion down the mountain and I have to thank my brother-in-law for allowing me to use it.

I'm not usually creative enough to come up with a name for any of my pictures but if I had to pick one for this particular photo, I would call it: 'Retirement With A Friend"...

Someone once pointed out to me that cars have personalities. For the most part, they all have smiles...perhaps the best of them is the Acura MDX. This tractor looks a little on the sad and lonely side and the dark sky behind doesn't help much. Maybe as a tribute to Winnie the Pooh, this one should be called, Eore (how do you spell that???).

I was driving through Texas a couple of weeks ago and saw the highway littered with these purple flowers. I was too lazy to take a picture then, so I made sure to get one on this trip. Interesting flowers.

Finally, my love for John Deere Tractors can be seen below. For some reason, I've always felt that I was supposed to be born in a small Texas town...perhaps even the town of Happy. To see that picture you'll have to visit the other blog:

American Muscle

Thanks to the help of some other bloggers who are more experienced I was able to learn how to post larger images.
