Review of the SpeedDemon2 blog for 2012 and plans for 2013

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for the blog which I am sharing as my last post for 2012. Folks in 109 countries have visited and hopefully enjoyed seeing the world through my images. There were 24,000 views and 574 followers which is far more than I expected when I began posting.

2012 was a great year for me. I started this blog and because of that I caught the eye of the Waterfront Development Corp here in Louisville, which led to me gaining access to the Big Four Bridge project. Without this blog I might never have had the opportunities that came my way in 2012.

I thank everyone who visited, viewed and commented on my work and the support they showed me. Stick around folks; I’m planning to explore new techniques and subjects as well as beginning the new year teaching others what I have learned as a photographer and artist.

I plan to launch my first “Route 66 Motography Tour” this spring which will be similar in scope to a photowalk except that we will do it on motorcycles. I have arranged to have two retired US Secret Service Agents join me as Road Captains and navigators. Both men are Motorcycle Safety Foundation certified RiderCoaches with over 40 years of motorcycle touring experience. With their help we will take 12 motorcycle and photography enthusiasts on a “Motography” journey that they will remember for the rest of their lives along Route 66 from Chicago to Santa Monica during a two week ride.

We’ll see the Mother Road from the saddles of our motorcycles as we photograph the incredible sights and vistas that are part of Route 66. Drop me a line if you are interested in joining us. We are limiting the group to 12 motorcycles so that there is ample time to enjoy the ride and get in plenty of photography too. Please share this with your friends; it will be a blast.

Here’s an excerpt:

4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 24,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 6 Film Festivals

  1. Nick you are an inspiration! What a great trip you have planned, can’t wait to see the great images you will capture. Many, many years ago we drove cross country from NY to CA and I’ve dreamed of doing it again…maybe one day. One definitely sees and experiences so much more from the motorcycle saddle…I do envy you. I live about 50 miles north of LA, your Santa Monica destination puts you in my neck of the woods…if I can assist in any way, please let me know.

  2. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and photos, a very positive site you have put together. Cant wait to hear and see about you “Route 66” trip this summer. Best to you and your companions!
