You are invited to stay and browse through my stream. Here’s a quick index to my little corner of Flickr:

Automobile Photographs
: This is a very large collection of images whose primary, but not exclusive, focus is on American automotive classics. Images are organized by decade, by manufacturer, and by topics (such as convertibles, station wagons, muscle cars, etc.)

Central Illinois (except Springfield)
: Central Illinois (except Springfield): Photos relating to the middle section of the "Land of Lincoln" (except for the Capital City of Springfield) may be found in this collection. Every city and town I’ve photographed is contained within its own set, and rural (as in "countryside") photographs are grouped by county.

Springfield, Illinois
: All of my photographs of Springfield and the Abraham Lincoln Sites are in this collection. For the City of Springfield, there are separate sets for the Capitol Complex, Downtown (including the Old State Capitol), Neighborhoods, Parks, Illinois State Fairgrounds (and past State Fairs), and more. Photographs of Lincoln sites include the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, Lincoln Home National Historic Site, Lincoln Tomb, and so on. Also in the Lincoln "All About Abe" (Set) are a few Lincoln sites not located in Springfield.

The Illinois State Fair
: My collection of photographs of the Illinois State Fair. The fair offers something for everyone. Grab a corn dog and lemon shake-up, and come take a look!

Beyond Central Illinois
: Other locales in the United States and Canada including New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Seattle.

In addition to my location-based sets, here are links to some "topical" collections and sets I’ve put together:

Barbers & Barber Shops
: Traditional barbers and barber shops are on the endangered species list. But there are still plenty to be found if you go looking for them.

Almost Everything Else. Check It Out!!!
: Included topics range from man’s first walk on the moon to small town schools and churches, and from Soft-Coated Wheaten Terriers (our favorite breed) to things that are abandoned, neglected, weathered, or rusty.

Do you want to look like the cover of a fitness magazine? While you may never be a fitness model, you can still get a surprisingly fit and firm body. Read on for some helpful tips that can lead you in the right direction, and help you transform your body into something amazing.

Don’t forget carbohydrates when you are working out. Carbohydrates are essential for the energy you need to last through your weight training workouts. If you don’t get enough carbs, your body will start to break down protein for energy. Consume enough carbs so that your body is able to function, and you find that you will have an easier time completing your workouts.

You must eat carbohydrates, if you want to build muscle. They give you the energy you need to perform your training. If you are following a particularly grueling training program, adjust your protein intake to match. That means about 2-3 grams of protein per pound of weight.

Repair and build your muscles by making sure to stretch post-workout. If you’re under the age of 40, hold each stretch for thirty seconds or more. Someone over 40 should hold their stretches for at least 60 seconds. This will help prevent injuries.

Look “bigger” than you really are. This is accomplished by focusing your attention on developing your upper chest, shoulders and upper back. This creates the illusion of a smaller waist and a larger frame overall.

Building muscle does not necessarily entail becoming totally ripped. There are various muscle-building exercises, and you should determine what your goals are before you decide which to do. Supplements will need to be added to your diet if you want large muscles.

Focus on the “big three” exercises of squats, bench presses and dead lifts to build muscle quickly. The effectiveness of these exercises at building up your muscles and improving your overall fitness is undeniable. Different exercises should be added onto your weight-lifting routine, but you should ensure that these three particular exercises are always done on a regular basis.

When building muscle, ensure that you are getting the correct caloric intake. There is good calorie intake and bad, so you need to be aware of what foods are healthy for building muscle and what is bad. Consuming a poor dietary regimen builds fat instead of muscle.

An excellent method of getting around muscles that are limiting you in certain exercises is pre-exhaust. Biceps can tire out before your lats when you’re performing rows, for example. An exercise that isolates and works only your lats, performed before your workout, allows you to avoid this problem. This will ensure that your lats get a good workout, preventing your biceps from limiting you during your rows.

Try to improve your bicep curls. During the usual biceps curl, the upper movement of the lift provides little benefit because you have not moved the weight past your parallel point. However, the top portion is a bicep curl’s strongest part. This problem can be solved by simply performing barbell curls while sitting.

Use many different kinds of grips when doing back exercises. Apply a staged or a mixed grip for performing rack pulls and deadlifts for achieving more strength. Using this staggered grip allows you to twist the bar in one direction while your other hand twists in the opposite direction. That will stop the bar from going all over the place, while in your hands.

Perfection might not be within your grasp yet, but you can already demonstrate amazing dedication. You have taken the time to read the things written here in order to change your life in the long run. Take what you have learned here and start implementing it to create the change in your body that you are looking for.
