Touch me
Take me to that other place
Teach me
I know I'm not a hopeless case

(U2 - Beautiful Day)

I had a busy morning, visiting about a dozen car dealerships in and around the city. I'm searching for a Volvo V40 in good condition. There's a lot of them still on the road and they're perfect for road trips with a few friends - which, naturally, goes along with carrying a lot of luggage, camera equipment, and camping gear.

The evening was rather relaxed. I visited some blogs as well as Flickr photostreams that friends recommended to me. The following links lead you to the pictures I liked best. #1; #2; #3; #4; #5; #6; #7; #8; #9; #10; #11; #12; #13; #14; #15.

Thanks for dropping by my blog today. I like what you're doing with your blog - the mix of photos, song lyrics, personal writing. The spare, uncluttered look suits me, too. All of the links in your text must be a lot of work for you.

We have a lot of favorite movies, books, and music in common. I'd not known that Cat Stevens had released more music. His original material still sounds fresh and pleasing after all these years. I'll have to look for the new album.

I once wrote a story about an amateur photographer who took long exposures after dark. It was an idea that fascinated me, though I haven't done it myself.

I'll be following...

You're good at this linking songs with photos thing - I like that, it lends another level of meaning to them.
