W.E.B. DuBois was born in Great Barrington, MA 150 years ago. He was a person of stupendous intellect and influence. (A small signifier of his accomplishments: he was the first African-American to earn a PhD at Harvard; but that is only shorthand for his subsequent accomplishments as an intellectual and political activist). I was hiking in Great Barrington over last weekend, and I took these photos of a wall mural celebrating his life and words.
We purchased 2 Vintage Airstream Motorhomes 2010 and 2015 -
Travelled across USA 4000 miles to the docks
and shipped both to England -
From 2010 to recently we lived most of the time in Airstream 1 - These are snippets along our merry way
Due to retirement we sold Air 1 and Air two is up for grabs - I hope you enjoy my Pictures .. LLL

The Leica Store LA had a Leica SL photo shoot - you bring your SL and Leica furnishes all the SL lenses to try out, and a model to shoot - all no cost. This was a great way to try out all the variety of Leica SL glass, and I had a chance to use the 35, 50, 50 f1.4, 75, 90, 16-35, and 24-90. A great time. The thing I noticed after reviewing all the photos, is that all the new SL lenses have exactly the same look, the only difference is focal length.
From 7 - 11th august, the city of Alkmaar, Holland, hosts the European Road Cycling Championships. Every now and again I walk outside with my M8 en take a look around. What I like, I post here. Hope you enjoy it too!
