I always feel like dogs are trying to make eye contact with me - does everyone feel that? Am I a dog empath? Regardless, this one was trying to tell me something this evening on my drive down the coast.
New bar tape & ultra high tech ultra violet chain lube with @velohangar I shot these with a 20 yr old Hassy lens on a new Sony - bikes & cameras both have one foot in the past & one in the future. Manual, tactile, emotional yet cold, technical, & futuristic.
Tourist day with the rascals
Youth gone wild
Roadside attraction. 2015
This bike never ran, not when our neighbor who outgrew it & gave it to us or when I pushed it up our tiny hill & coasted back down making engine noises nor when we passed it on to the next desperate dirt biker. I loved it though & my pathetic efforts in the back yard helped convince my parents that I was ready to move on from pony club.
The other kids
I came across these images from the frozen ‘Sota tundra while purging the archives. My notes on the neg sleeve: “way below zero” 2003
Desert Days - abandoned railway & possibly illegal driving lessons.
Happy New Year everyone & Happy Anniversary to my wonderful Wife. I couldn’t do it without you.
