Where’s Paulie?

This being Memorial Day I am sure that the majority of you may be reading this on Tuesday.

I’ve decided to blog today because I slept in this morning in order to treat myself to breakfast. In the past few days I have been attempting to get up and shoot sunrises, but when the sun rises at 5am it has been difficult.

I am currently in Flagstaff, Arizona. Along this trip a lot of plans have been made and broken. I’ve learned that I should have done far more research before heading out here. I took the “I’m just going to ‘wing it'” attitude a little to seriously.

I can’t say that any revelations have been made thus far, except another reminder that I need to diet. I’m headed to Sedona today which I understand is spectacular, so maybe it will occur then. 🙂

In the next week or so I’ll be posting more in-depth stories, and I have plenty, about this trip.

One of about a thousand I’ve taken. I expect that I will have my hands full five times over when I finally get around to post processing. I’ve noticed spotting on my photos again. Bummer. I’ll have to take most of the shots into Lightroom and give my equipment a good cleaning today.

Where I Wanted To Stay

This is the Wig-Wam Motel along Route 66 in Holbrook, Arizona. I wanted to rent one of the wig-wams rooms for a night, but their office didn’t open until 3pm and when I hit Holbrook around noon I needed a nap so I went elsewhere.

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – pretty good
Current Music – none
Website Of The Day – none today
Exercise (b)Log – a lot of walking
Mode Of Transportation To Work – no work

May Goals
1) Lose two pounds. (starting weight 200 lbs)
2) Exercise at least five days per week.
3) Read two books, specifically
3a) “722 Miles: The Building of the Subways and How They Transformed New York”
3b) “The Evolution Of Useful Things…”

    Someone once told me that going on vacation with me was like participating in a military offensive. The hotel room was Command Central—ALL events were planned and every moment was scheduled. An unplanned vacation would likely drive me BATS! But, perhaps I should try it ONCE.

    Also, is the photo of the Wig-Wam Motel one of yours? Those are some kick ass cars in the parking lot!

    This is my first time at winging it. On one hand it’s been weird, on the other it’s been great.

    Yes, that is a picture I shot. They’ve stationed old cars at each wig-wam to make it look like it did in the heyday of Route 66.
