At sunset and trying out a 20mm f1.7 Panasonic lens on my Olympus E-PL1 camera body. The f1.7 part means it works well in low light conditions. It's camera geek stuff for sure so, yeah, you're all asleep now. That didn't take long.
The photo above is a local joint a few miles from my house. I know a female paramedic who's husband is a cop and she was under strict orders not to respond to calls inside the place unless there are police present. Half the bikes in the parking lot are metric cruisers so the crowd can't be that rough although I hear that Sonny Barger is riding a Victory these days. Does the Victory count as a metric cruiser?
