In the early 1990's I took a few trips to zoo's, and amusement parks in Southern California, and to begin to do more than ride my bike only to and from work.
As part of this occasional activity I took my camera along to record, for posterity, the places I visited, and the things I saw.
It was important for me to have a record of the fact that I DID manage to get out of the house, and away from work, on occasion.
I had spent too many years just coming home from work and, except for excursions to various book and video stores, and Cineplexes, across Los Angeles County, didn't get out much.
Once I got online, at the end of the decade, and began to participate in Online Communities, I actually began to share my experiences with others and this led to including such stories in my blogging, especially my BikeBlog.
I like sharing my travel experiences, and my thoughts on the things I see in world we live in, because it helps my writing skills, and may spur readers to get out and explore their own surroundings.
Speaking about "Place" and writing about it...is the Blogosphere a "Place"?
