Downtown by Macklemore.

Dear friends scootering has arrived!  Yesterday, I heard the song Downtown by Macklemore, Ryan Lewis featuring Eric Nally, Melle Mel, Kool Moe Dee and Grandmaster Caz. The whole song is about "gangsta mopeding if that is possible. I am posting a link to the video that warning this is an explicit version of the song. You can actually buy clean versions of the song on Amazon and iTunes. This song is part funk and part rap. This song could elevate scootering to a new level of respect. LOL I hope you enjoy the song and the limited days of scootering that we have left!

Welcome To Scootertography

Hello Friends: this is my first Blog post ever.  I wanted to do a blog that combines two of my passions, scooters and photography.  This blog will document photography revolving around my scooter rides.  It will include photos of scooters but it will not be limited to this subject.  I am hoping to share with you the bikes, the people, the places and adventures  that my scooter brings to me.

I am currently riding a beautiful 1995 Honda Helix, white with a hand painted double helix (DNA) on the back. Go Science! I will upload photos shortly.  I hope that this will have broad appeal from people who love photography and people who love scooters.  For the blog, I will primarily use mobile devices and point and shoot cameras, unless I specify another camera was used. I am a proud Canon user! 

Do you remember cruising around town on $5 to $10 of gas?   My goal is to share with you my renewed love of driving, bringing me back to my late teens.  If you like please bookmark, subscribe and tell some friends. So sit back and enjoy my ride.
