MAINE: my final frontier. These are the voyages of the Scooter Vespa 250 i.e. Super. Its continuing mission - to explore America's most heavily forested state - to roam the vast coastline, numberless lakes, and mighty mountains. To boldly go where no scooter has gone before!

I am envious of the photography of two scooter sites in particular: Living Among Tourists at and Scooter in the Sticks at Both sites feature amazing photos, and superb writing.

My specialty is baseball photography; no way to get the GTS onto Hadlock Field in Portland, home of the Sea Dogs. I cover the team for several local weekly papers.

It's hard to take a bad photo of a baseball game, whereas the sky, and objects in it, pose challenges beyond my skills:

The moon in actually in this photo. 

I was sent the collage below, but don't know who created it. It's so original that I want to share it.


  1. Merry Christmas, Thomas. I just saw what you wrote. What a lovely Christmas gift you have given me. Thank you. -Martha

  2. Mr. Keene, I agree with you. The photography and the writing in both of the blogs you mentioned is superb. I look forward to each new post. And, for what it is worth, I now have your site bookmarked as well.

  3. Thank you for the kind words. Photography and writing remains a mystical lure along with riding. So I keep on experimenting.

    Have a great holiday and New Year.
