Hey John, loving the posts on the Tour de France — some great shots!

We've added you to out Bootie Blogroll here. Have subscribed via RSS to your blog and picked up your twitter feed, too! Looking forward to keeping abreast of your posts.

Great logo — was that done via Photoshop or is it hand drawn?

Thanks Kate and Dan!

I'm having an amazing time here in Spain/France. Today was the first day that i skipped seeing the Tour roll through and i'm kinda sad! :(

Glad you're enjoying the posts! my logo was done by a friend. It's kinda fun. :)

Hope to hear from you on the blog. Feel free to leave a comment once in awhile.

I've added a couple of new posts tonight (on the Tour de France mountain stages). I'm in Pamplona tonight and getting up early to see the last Running of the Bulls for the festival!

I'm currently in Peru for about 5 weeks and will be updating my Travel/Photo blog as much as possible. Maybe you'll get an idea or tip while browsing or be able to suggest something for me. I have about 4 more weeks in the country. I've mainly been in Huaraz so far.

Hope you enjoy!

3 updates: (I'll update this thread when I add a new post)
