About Me

My photo
Welcome to the online blog for traveler/writer/photographer Steven Barber. Come in. Relax. Take off your shoes and socks -- or any other article of clothing, this is the internet. Have a look around. I hope to intrigue, amuse, entertain, and maybe provoke you just a little. I love to find adventure. All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.

I've driven all over the Western Hemisphere, under all sorts of conditions. This is a sign you see in a lot of places, indicating there are curves ahead. Usually they mean just a handful of curves on a moderately winding road.

In San Francisco the sign may be taken literally if you're facing Lombard Street

600-ish feet in length, paved with bricks and featuring 8 curves along a 
one-way (downhill) road with a better than 25% grade.

"Curves ahead." In this case the sign is an understatement.

Drive carefully, and test your brakes before turning in.
