ToDo List / List of things to bring

So I tried to post about my road trip everyday until I left but as you can see, that didn't happen. In 30 hours Jd and I will be getting in the truck to leave for NC to start our 5 day road trip on the motorcycles. So I figured I'd post my to-do/ list of things to bring.

-Get Turn Signal bulb
-Call Sharon about place to leave trailer
-Decide if I'm using the windshield or not
-Find a Cable release for dslr
-Buy new head phones that will stay in my ear as I ride
-create a few playlists and update/ charge ipod and iphone
-Toothbrush, tooth paste, Deodorant, Shampoo, Soap
Something to cover my boots if it rains
-buy additional memory card for dslr
-35mm film
-charge GPS
-Ask dad to use his hand held gps
-pack clothes
-figure out how I'm going to strap everything to the bike
-sleeping bag
-look at Robert Franks work more
-get my sinus medication together
-fork bag?

if anyone thinks of something i might be missing PLEASE TELL ME

I found an article from
Street Chopper magizine about sportster
and ran into a photo that is along the
lines of something I want to shoot.

7 days

So the weather is beginning to worry me a little. I haven't picked up rain gear yet and it's looking like I should probably get on that. I just purchased a windshield so that might help a little. I'll post more later, class is about to start.

8 days

So the count down starts! 8 days until Jd and I leave for FL!

During my crit for Contemporary Color Landscape,
we looked at google maps as part of our conversation
and looked at a few places from this eye level view.
For my Wilderness project I created a website that
was intended to make the viewer question
their own definition of “wilderness”.
I don’t know if it was completely successful in creating this question
because of how I define wilderness.
In my opinion wilderness is definitely by
how much you know the place and
know how to live or exist in that place.

"my wilderness project"

Anyway this question brought us to google maps
in this eye level view and
instantly I thought about my road trip.

I ordered two cable releases for my cameras for this trip.
And I'm beginning to worry that they
aren't going to get here in time.
I want to some how attach my camera
behind me on my motorcycle
set it up looking to the right or left as I ride.
I wanted to use the cable release to shoot as I was riding.
Capture people driving in cars next to me,
or jd riding and anything else
that might be interesting on the road.
I also wanted to set one up for Jd
to be able to shoot so I would have some images
of myself on our trip.

Fallen Riders

"Memorial Wall at Big Falls"

This is an addition to my Junior Seminar project.
I'm happy with this shot
other then the car reflected in the wall.
I'm going to have to go back
and shoot it one day that
there are a few bikes around.
I think it would make the image
ten times stronger for my series.

As far as sequencing goes,
I'm not sure where I see this image in the series.
I'm thinking towards the end but not the last image.
After seeing Robert Frank's "The American",

I really want to make sure my sequencing makes sense
and is done for a reason
