Rt. 2, Michigan Upper Peninsula
My usual practice of titling each picture with the city/state where it was made is on hold during the road trip. I'm keeping a log with a digital audio recorder. This has the great advantage over micro-cassette recorders I used in the past—instead of a unique and fragile tape, I've got a bunch of MP3s. Each evening after I download my digital capture files I also download the MP3s to the MacBook's hard drive, which is then all backed up to a small 500 gig pocket-size hard drive using Time Machine. Using a recorder lets me make much more detailed (and much more legible!) notes than I could possibly do by hand, but I certainly don't have the time to transcribe the notes while traveling. That's kind of the point, to be able to go over them later with no time pressure. So my IDs on many of the pictures will be sketchy. Some time down the road I'll probably add the right ID parenthetically to the posts.
