Motorcycle Details

Once a year, Galveston hosts a fairly large motorcycle rally, It's called the Lone Star Rally. According to their website, more than 400,00 people attended last year.   The entire downtown area is filled with the roar of Harleys and bikers having a good time.  It's a lot of fun, and a great oppurtunity to take pictures.  The images below were taken a couple of years ago, right after I got might first DSLR camera.  I was still shooting film up until then.  Needless to say, I was doing a lot of experimenting with the camera, and afterwards with Adobe Lightroom.    I'm looking forward to this years rally to go out and mingle among the exotic bikes and masses of people.

True to my word, I went out and took some pictures this week.  This is of a building in the downtown area of Galveston, Texas.  Writing about my pictures is proving much harder than actually taking them.  I must have typed and deleted 30 sentences by now.  Back in college in my photography courses, I continually had to talk about and critique my work as well as others.  I'm pretty sure that is a skill I'll need to relearn as I go through with this blog.  For now, I'll keep it simple and say that I've always enjoyed taking pictures of old and worn out things.  I believe that I find the textures found in older objects adds an extra element to the form of the photographs.

Thanks for the comments, likes, and encouragement on the last post. Knowing that someone even noticed that I started this page helped get me out shooting last week.
