Hi Lights,

Yeah. Pretty powerful things, these earthquakes! Just think that the whole land mass of the earth was formed in one way or another by earthquakes, volcanoes, ice flows, wind, and rain.

As to the background of the scooter, I found what the photographer wrote about it

Quote:
Big Chief Scooter1, Austin


I told the young lady who owned this scooter,
a nursing student at UT-Austin,
that when I came around the corner of Hoolihan's and saw her scooter,
I figured I'd never walk upon a pink scooter again the rest of my life --
and I just had to shoot it.
I emailed her several images of it,
and here are a coupla more for this gallery.


So it might be some advert for the restaurant. That green thing looks like an olive to me.

Edit: You can find a few more angles of the scooter here. Looks like some posters in the back on the restaurant's wall.

I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger. (Anon)

Thanks, IMc. Neat looking machine, eh what?

I had a boyfriend for a short time who had a motorcycle. I did not much like riding on it. That is why it was for a short time. Lol

I must admit, JJ. That is the most unusual pic so far! You get a one-slice toaster. (That's the Finnish idea of a sauna?)

We do, in fact, have some more conventional sauna culture here ;-)
