Looks rather amateurish to me.

In other words you have no point, nothing useful to say and are just taking
up bandwidth and wasting people's time. I guess I should have expected
that -- it comports perfectly with your other efforts.

Plonk.

Last time you said that You ended up telling some one who actually had
a (well documented) hand in designing the Internet you knew (with no
evidence) more than he did.

I have a reasonable knowledge of good coding practice. You clearly do
not.

I don't do those type of shots. The machines don't interest me unless
they are rusty old wrecks. The people on or around the machines are
what I like to take candid photographs of. Usually I crop out all but
the part of the machine that is around the face or the upper body.

To take a good shot of a motorcycle you need to set up at the right
time of day, position the bike so the light falls the right way, and
(sometimes) use a reflector or screen to manage the light. Then you
have to worry about reflections in the paintwork or chrome. All that
just doesn't interest me.

Part of that lack of interest is my lack of appreciation for the
machine itself. I'd like to find an old Indian propped up in a barn,
but all those modern bikes leave me cold. Photographically.

I've still got a 1971 Moto Guzzi Ambassador in the garage, but its in
parts and pieces. Also in boxes is most of a 1972 Moto Guzzi El
Dorado. If the SI mandate is ever "unfinished projects", I'm in luck.

Great post! (I respond not only to thank you for it, but so that
I will include it among all the posts preserved on my web site...;-)
