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 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.

If you desire to build muscles, you can start by exercising your brain. You want to know exactly how you can achieve the desired results. Follow these tips and learn how to build the body that you’ve been dreaming of.

Do not load up on weight during every exercise, because not every position is favorable for heavy lifting. If you are working on your neck, doing regular dips, or trying split squats, then you will want to reduce your load so as not to cause injury to your joints. Keep the higher weights to exercises which are easier to complete, such as rows or standard squats.

Protein is one of the building blocks of muscle growth. One of the best ways to get the protein that you need is by utilizing protein shakes and supplements. The best times to consume these supplements is right after working out and before bed. Limiting yourself to one shake a day when losing weight is one of your overall fitness goals. However, gaining mass together with muscle means up to about three shakes per day.

The “big three” should form the core of your exercise routine. This trio of exercises includes dead lifts, bench presses and squats. These exercises will condition your body, build strength, and add muscle mass. Do some variation of the “big three” exercises regularly.

Eat healthy fats when you’re on a diet where you want to gain muscle. Not only do healthy fats lubricate your joints, but they also increase testosterone. This will help you enhance your muscle size and strength. Saturated fats should be avoided, as they are unhealthy, and especially bad for your heart.

Look for a protein powder that is of the highest quality so that you will be able to make energy shakes. When mass-building muscle, your body needs more protein than when you are just exercising. Consuming the protein in shake or smoothie form can be quick and easy.

Adults who wish to build muscle, could examine the use of a creatine supplement. This nutrient increases your energy level while assisting your body in building muscle. Creatine is a leading weight training supplement. So do your best to stay away from supplements, if you feel like your body is still in the process of growing.

You have to make sure that you always warm up if you are trying to build your muscle mass. As you strengthen your muscles, you also place a heap of additional stress upon them that may increase the likelihood of injuries. You can prevent hurting yourself by warming up and cooling down. Before you lift anything heavy, do 5-10 minutes of light cardio, followed by a few light or intermediate sets of your regular exercises.

Joining a gym can be a great way to start your weight training program. Gyms have various types of equipment and can help you get more from your workouts, along with having pros that can help you with their knowledge of muscle building. Also, you will be able to ask questions you may have.

Monitor your body fat when you build muscle. Remember that your weight will increase as you build muscle. Looking solely at your weight can be discouraging, so do not depend on that as a gauge of your actual progress when it comes to muscle growth.

When you are done with a workout, stretching is very important, so that your muscles can repair themselves and rebuild. People under the age of 40 should hold stretches for a minimum of 30 seconds. If you are past 40, you should hold it for twice as long. This method of stretching helps you avoid injury after your muscle building exercises.

Muscle building takes a lot more to achieve than buying a gym membership. You have to approach it in the right manner in order to get results. Follow the tips you have read to get the best from your muscle building program.
