- Sometimes I need to be patient for the photos. This one I've been thinking about for a few months.

Week 26, Day 189, October 29, 2009, "Mustang Mike"
You may remember Mike from the famous photo Chopsticks. Mike has a great Mustang convertible. I think it's his midlife crises car. He sold all his motorcycles from his youth (and not so youth) to purchase the car. Once a week we have lunch together. I get to enjoy his midlife crises, and go for a ride to wherever we are going to eat that week. We scream at the kids, "Get out of the road!".
I've had this photo in mind for a long time. It's not very often that there is a parking space available in front of the Royal Palms Tavern in Collegetown, Ithaca. I thought that the red of the car with the bright yellow of the building, and Mike standing in the background would make a great photo. I thought this would be a good change in pace from the Fall photos that I have been taking lately. If Mike ever takes up the guitar again, and records a MP3, he can use this for his album art.
I hope you enjoy.
