Summer’s Last Stand

Standard

XS400-7

A little while back, my mom and I rode out early one morning to get some snaps of the bikes in the wonderful morning glow. It was a nice, warm morning and a great little ride.

Lately it’s been not so great outside. Rain all day today, cloudy most other days. When it is sunny I try to get out and ride. I even ventured into Kent last week to see a friend I haven’t talked with in a LONG time. Good times were had by all. Sadly, it appears that summer has finally come to a close. The days aren’t creeping into the 70’s anymore. I’m feeling lucky if it just slides into the 60’s. It looks like I’ll soon be riding the bike to Clyde for the last time and to ready it for winter work or just storage.

So, in honor of this summer bidding us adieu, I offer up some photos of that warm mornings ride that seems so long ago. At the top of the post is what I took with me that morning on our ride. Helmet, gloves, glasses, camera bag and all that stuff. Not too much but it definitely freaks me out having that much expensive gear on that back of this motorcycle. Anyway, there are a few photos of my mom’s bike but a bunch more of mine since it requires infinitely less retouching. Check ’em out!

Autumn Cruise: Round 2

I have a few more photos for y’all today. These are still not my picks as the best (one more set before I can unload those) but I do enjoy quite a bit of these shots. I tried to photograph a lot of details at the car show. To me, that’s where the real beauty lies in these autos. I can look up a general image of a vehicle at any time but to see the small details is what really starts to give a vehicle a true character.

Anyway, check ’em out and stay on the lookout for more tomorrow and Friday.

Autumn Cruise: Low-Ranking Fruit

Standard

RedGoldLight

I’ve been editing the photos from the Upper Sandusky “Autumn Cruise” for a little while now and I’ve finally been able to finish them all this morning. It was a long process but I think it yielded some really good photos. This set is not that. This is just the first of a few posts and the photos within consist of the “no-so-great” shots first. There’s nothing really bad about them, it’s just not what I felt were the best of the best. Check back for more soon.

I said a little while back that I was working on a set of engagement photos for my cousin and her dude. Well, I recently finished editing/retouching them and I’ve decided to share a bit of my favorites with y’all here. I had never done a photo session like this before but it was a fun time and I think we came out with a bunch of good shots for them to use. My personal favorite is the one with them sitting on the steps. Totally bitchin’ stuff. Check ’em out, yo!

I was able to squeeze in a little photo editing on some bikes yesterday in between editing engagement photos and working on some design projects. Good stuff fo sho. I spent a fair amount of time on that Harley image to get it looking just how I wanted. Real sexy stuff. It makes me realize I need some chrome or gloss paint on my bike.

More to come once I get a bit more free time.
