  1. Hey people.



    was shopping at southland today and in the bookshop i came across a gem of a book. Its called "Highside - Our love affair with the motorcycle", by Bruce Williams

    Its a very picture full book with stories of motorcyclists stories. Ive just started readin it but should be done in a week or too. (im a bit slow at reading)

  9. It's an intersting book. I think there is a story with Steve Martin the WSBK racer in it.

  10. If you want photographic books, the three by Ansel Adams should be required reading for any budding photographer - they really have some excellent information, even in this day and age of digital - the principle still apply.

    Otherwise I have one called "Shooting the Natural Landscape" which is excellent.
