RIDING SHOT OF THE WEEK.......
IS THIS YOU RIDING THROUGH SPEARFISH CANYON?
As I always do....I was hiding in the bushes photographing motorcycle riders flashing by. I only hide because I'm trying to get candid shots, and not get flipped the bird. Many, if not most bikers have that autmatic flip the camerman the bird syndrome which is in fact funny sometimes, especially when they almost lose control trying get their hand back on the handlebar grip without wrecking the bike. This is called bike ettiquette. I am not offended, simply amused. Nate the Nasty Nerd who is my photo assistant, picked this riding photo as his favorite of the week. I don't mess with him....he's a drooler.................his picture is below. He is available for autographs, but he can't sign his name...he just drools on the paper! His drool is his signature.
If you have taken an exceptional riding shot and want to splash it here please, by all means, send it to me. If I get enough photos I may even stage a "Riding Shot" photo contest with a cash prize. If the photo seen here happens to be you riding your motorcycle through Spearfish Canyon on 10-2-2011, and you contact Lovell Photography by 10am Tuesday January 17th, I will send you a free 13 X 19 print of that image.
