Zen and the art of motor (re)cycling

It is quite challenging for us techo retarded office types to get through the day without consulting our tech support crew. From “download” problems, to missing photo files, a whole year of lost emails, and the odd misplaced invoice. When we get stuck, who will we call?
In case you are wondering, the state of our tech structure is in a quite precarious state since our resident tech guy, Oliver Holmgren left for his motorcycle adventure up north. While he is on the road, he is keeping in touch through his blog Sunken Miles. Reading his report has been a treat for us with his renowned photographs and carefully chosen words. No wonder he calls his motorcycle Mawson (after an Australian antarctic explorer Douglas Mawson to whom Oliver is distantly related).
“Never leave without the kitchen sink”, advises the blog, and lo and behold, the man is indeed travelling with his own (version 2.2, we are informed).
His progress through the least known part of the east coast is just fascinating and Oliver’s photographs take you right up there. He does explain the basics of capturing the night sky, but there must be more to it, his photos are too amazing. More pictures at Sunken Miles.
