~ This Saturday's Theme is Empty ~




Theme: Empty ** Become a Photo Hunter ** View Blogroll




These pictures were taken last summer for the MSR motorcycle scavanger hunt. I had to have my motorcycle taken with the World Arena. During this time of day the huge parking lot was "empty."



It was a gorgeous day for these photos and it was the second time I ventured out on my own with my motorcycle for a long ride. When the day was said and done I had done 129 miles on August 28th of last year. I went to Penrose and back and was it fun!!!

Wishing you many travel adventures,

Biker Betty :)

Sometimes, an empty parking lot is quite priceless. Especially when you're learning how to drive a car or bike. :P

Nice shots!

abe-hap said...

amy said...

Imma ( Alice) said...

Very good "empty" photos. I admire you riding a long distance alone. I have been known to do so in my truck, but not on a bike. But then, I've never driven a bike, just "held down the back wheel" on some.

It's so odd the see a place like that so empty. Nice pictures!

Daisy said...

I like seeing your pretty motorcycle, especially with no other cars or anything around. I wish I could go out in my stroller and ride all alone, just like you!

Wow! I am very impressed that you would go on a long ride by that by yourself! Empty parking lots are certainly the best kind! Have a wonderful weekend, Betty, and thanks for stopping by Pollywog Creek.

Lynn said...

What can I say - go, ride for more!

Excellent take on empty. I went to CC -- waaaaay back when -- and the World Arena wasn't there. I need to come back to the Springs and see how much it's changed.

Lazy Daisy said...

I was thinking it would be an empty gas tank on your bike! Good choice Betty. Looks like it was a beautiful day for a ride.

Nice photo of your motorcycle in the empty parking lot! It sounds like you had a fun trip that day.

Awwwww your bike looks so lonely in that huge empty parking lot.

Expat Traveler said...

my eyes are just focused on the blue empty sky lacking rain! Ah we need blue skies!

Great pics! thanks for stopping by.

Barbara H. said...

Sounds like a full day!! And I imagine the parking lot seemed really big when you're the only one there.

PowersTwinB said...

Even in that massive empty parking lot, your bike is impressive! Betty, youre my hero, riding all over on the back of your bike! My photo is up, please come and visit soon

TorAa said...

What events do they hold there? Great photo and with the lovely bike as well. Does it get a bath after every trip?

Another great choice for the theme. It sounds like a good time.

It must have been very peaceful. Happy weekend.

PEA said...

It's always such a weird sight when you see such a big parking lot...empty!! Great picture for today's theme!! Mine is up too:-)

meeyauw said...

I looked up the World Arena. It holds almost 10,000 people! That is overwhelmingly large. I wonder how many vehicles that parking lot that you posed in will hold? Great shot!

Carol said...

You look so small in that great big parking lot. Love your beautiful bike.

Have a great weekend, Betty!

Mine is up...

With the warmer weather approaching here in Michigan, and looking at all your biker photos, I can't wait to feel the wind in my face. No, I'm not a biker. Instead, I'm talking about boating and feeling the breeze.

Anita said...

Empty parking lots are rare! What a cool photo! Mine is up.

Teena said...

Look how nicely your bike stands out!

Mine's up too :)
