As fall approaches, I plan on making a trip to the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome . I’ve been going there since I was a little boy, and I hope my son enjoys it as much as I did as a kid. Many of the planes are replicas, but it does not really matter. Their collection of planes is pretty large, and always fun to see, hear and smell. If you get their early enough, you can even schedule a ride in a vintage biplane. The Old Rhinebeck area is beautiful in the fall, and the photo ops are abundant on a nice day.
Pikachu Float, NYC
I don’t play the Pokemon card or video games, but I do know that they have something to do with capturing the monsters, and trading them (or something like that). Apparently a group of people on 6th ave caught this Pikachu as it wandered down the street. The street was closed off as they tied him down, and prepared to load him on a truck.
It’s been about a year and a half since my trip to Italy. I had a 1/12th share in a villa in Fiano Tuscany. If you can get a big enough group together, this is a great way to spend a vacation. The villa was amazing, as was the Tuscan country side. We divided up into smaller groups durning the day for sightseeing (or spending some time by the pool). We took turns with cooking duties durning the week, and had many amazing meals prepared with food from the local farm co-op. It’s a slow day, so here is a little gallery from the trip.
All photos were taken with a Nikon D100 , 18-35, 28-105 or 50mm.
