This morning I pedaled 24.6miles on my Schwinn 170. Totals are now 37,018.9 miles; 59,576.3 kilometers.
I have plotted a new path and goal destination, Ascraeus Mons. I am now located at 15.57%.
Only 1,158.1 miles remaining in Jim’s Trek.
“Mussolini viewed propaganda as a key means to win support from the Italian people. The poster here has the Italian words for "to us" written at the bottom, promoting a unified and strong Italy.”

From Medium.com dated Sep 6, 2018 – “Why You Shouldn’t Upgrade Your Camera” by Kirk Mastin https://medium.com/photo-dojo/why-you-shouldnt-upgrade-your-camera-de296679446e
“Collect art and photo books. Your best work comes from synthesizing information from your life experiences as well as the art you consume to feed your creative soul. I believe that if you don’t study what has already been done, you are doomed to repeat work that already exists at a very mediocre level. Your art will only ever rise to your level of taste, so study the greats that have come before you. Vincent Van Gogh copied famous impressionist paintings, stroke for stroke, to understand how his contemporaries painted. Once he understood impressionism, he could break the rules and find his voice. It’s no different for photographers.”
