I started this website as a forum to post my photography and thought.  I made a decision at the start to post one photo a day.  With the exception of lack of internet, I have met that commitment and plan to continue.  I say this because I believe that, just in the few months since beginning, I have increased my knowledge exponentially.  The process of having to get a photo ready each night is trying, but the rewards are well worth it.  Not only have I learned from earlier mistakes, but also from input.

I now believe that one of the best rules of photography is to take pictures.  No, I mean it.  If you don’t practice, you will never get better, or at least not nearly as fast.


I ran across this completely by accident.  I was trying to get to the popcorn store…no, not for me…my wife.  Well and kids.  But anyway, next door is the Cigar Bar.  Lined up outside were three motorcycles.  One of which was Tennessee Orange.  Yes, Orange with a capital “O”.  I parked the car several spots away, well, the other side of the parking lot, got out and slowly approached.  A Cigar Bar, you never know what is going to come out and get on those bikes.  I took a couple photos, was not accosted and believing I had permission then, took a few more.  Anyone in the north Atlanta area that wants photos of their bike, let me know.  I really enjoyed taking this and the way it turned out.

    I totally agree about taking more photos. That’s why I started my blog too. Though I’m not able to post a photo a day, I hope to do several a week. I love the way the oranage pops from the rest of the black and white image. I’m going to have to try one of these!

  2. […] have taken a few other photos with a close up perspective like this one of a Chopper.  And don’t miss last Monday’s Daily […]

  3. […] so I could have gotten a clean background. Hopefully I can find more motorcycles like this or the Chopper I found […]
