Yes, I Know

Yamaha Motorcycle

So sue me. I saw the red Yamaha motorcycle sitting in the lot next to where I went for supper this evening, and stopped long enough to play with the location of the focusing square and using the 25mm wide open at f/1.4. The combination of overcast clouds, late evening light and the showers that just finished added to the draw of the motorcycle. I had about 30 seconds to grab something before heading out. That and the fact I was afraid the owner might come out of the bar it was parked in front of and ask me what I was doing.

I absolutely love the Olympus E-PL2 and Panasonic Leica Summilux 25mm combination.

  1. Cool photos of a nice motorbike Bill. These Yamahas are great - normally I prefer the low and "bubbling" sound of a V-Twin, and these here cry "Racetrack!" all over town. And then they kick your butt, and you love them. They're a cool ride indeed.

  2. I wouldn't be afraid of the owner. If or when they ask me anything, I just respond innocently with something like "Your great looking bike really caught my eye, and I just thought it would make some interesting photographs. Would you like me to send you some?" At that point they become your friend! Get their email address, and be sure to send them a couple medium resolution JPGs.
