Nancy and I went to the Progressive Motorcycle Show in Cleveland last year and I grabbed this wonderful book from the Indian display while wandering around. I’ve never really wanted a modern Indian motorcycle but this design was too good to leave sitting there. Tons of good imagery, bold typography (grungy sans-serif with an old-school script FTW!) all wrapped in a simple layout. That’s my kind of promotional piece. Check it out!
I finally got around to taking some photos of the Sportster with the new paint scheme a few weeks ago. I know, I know… it’s only taken me about 4 months now. Whatever. It was worth the wait. I got lucky with some decent weather and a few good locations. Not the easiest task in the small town of Clyde but it came through in the end. I also managed to snap a set at an abandoned gas station on Rt. 20 on my way from Cleveland to Clyde. Very cool spot but most of the photos didn’t turn out so well this time. Maybe I’ll stop again when the sun is setting for another chance. Check ’em all out and if you see me out and about then give me a holler.
This July 4th holiday weekend was supposed to be spent on the motorcycle and at the drag races but the weather has made that a non-starter. The drags are dry but it’s wet where I am so that was a no-go. Hopefully the rest of the weekend is a little drier and I get on the bike a bunch. As a consolation I offer these photos from the 2016 Autumn Cruise to the weather gods. Give em a peek and see some pretty stuff. This is the last round of photos so take them in and look ahead to possibly seeing more from later this year.
Well, well well…it has been a VERY long time since I’ve posted any car photos. There are numerous reasons for that: life, motorcycles, jobs, lack of quality computer, and more. I finally fixed one of those reasons when I recently bought myself a newly updated iMac. Lightroom is now running quick and smooth so I’m getting back in the saddle with these photos. Check ’em out and if you like something then give a comment. I’m working on potentially selling some photos from my various car outings. I hope that it can be a small revenue stream that also gets me out and about over the summer. If you are interested in a print then hit me up in the comments or by email/text if you know me personally.
I’ve been sitting on this image for a while (obviously) but I had to finally share it as I just love it when the internet does something amazing completely by accident. It looks like the big white guy is sending a hook shot right toward the hoop in the corner of the photo. Also great is how they misspelled “Bracketology” and it is their own term.
Over the past winter, I (along with a few of my trusted buddies) embarked on a long journey to spruce up the Sportster that I got last summer. There was nothing actually wrong with it other than a battery cable that snapped in half but I really disliked the color of the thing and the really ugly, hand-painted cancer ribbon on the back fender. There was actually a fairly neat painting on the rear fender as well but it was always obscured by the big seat so it had to go too. Out with the old and in with the new.Continue reading
