Originally uploaded by Kevin.Haroun With the new camera I decided it was time to do some more firelight shots. Most of them didn't come out or I just didn't care for. I don't know enough about f-stop, and exposures to get the shots I wanted. Ironically, I had a higher proportion of shots I liked when I did this previously with just the Samsung NV10. On the other hand, this shot came out very nicely. The only downside being the fire had died down such that you can't see the bike in this picture without looking for it. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the shot. A new favorite self-portrait!

Originally uploaded by Kevin.Haroun Late morning leaving Taif. Picked up Nazgul after finally getting her jiffy stand repaired. The final bill was less than expected, in part because I was lucky enough to find the spring after it got sheared off.

The heat was brutal across the big empty, but I was able to stop for a few shots that I'd really been wanting to take. After getting to Taif I took a nap then went out to the stables. Everyone was there, and I was finally able to let a colleague ride the bike, and take a friend and her kids for short rides around the club grounds. All in all, a great day, and one only possible in Saudi Arabia.
