Motorcycles, Engines and Bandits

Anyone who has read my blog posts thus far will perhaps have gathered that I have a quirky ancestry of mad people and genius inventors.  One of these,  my greatgrandfather,  was involved in the creation of the very earliest Rolls Royce cars and  it is therefore perhaps not so strange that I have a particular fascination for things mechanical and petrol based.   I have always been a strictly four-wheeled  person in truth, but Mr H has a passion for motorbikes and although I have never owned one myself, the machines themselves in all their 2 wheeled glory are a source of chrome-plated delight and admiration.  When one of my favourite bloggers ( greetings shpics )  posted a gallery of inspiring photos this morning on this very subject, I thought it might be fun to offer a photographic response …………..

    Awesome pictures, I took some a few years ago of a couple of motorcycles. I agree the chrome and lines make for some fun shots. I especially love the headlight picture! Keep up the great work!

  3. Simply marvellous…Particularly the headlight and Thingy in the middle of the wheel, (you can tell how mechanical I am 🙂 ).
    AND a super bike…
    I’m afraid I’ve had a very frustrating day…One of my films developed a nasty skin complaint…. You can read about it soon.

    1. Those are called brake discs sh, and I hope yours’ are in good order – sorry to hear about the rubbish day and film disease – added texture perhaps? I’ve spent all day fiddling about with sliders and fonts o_O I am now virtually, and literally cross-eyed – you see I really need someone to event that cross-eyed icon 😦 Perhaps tomorrow will be better? (My middle name is Scarlet) 😀

    2. PS Just noticed that this fellow o_O actually IS cross-eyed, I think it’s the throwing up icon I still haven’t found 🙂 Must be weird working with film btw, never done it, adds a whole scary dimension, have enough trouble with digital :/

      1. Well if you do have trouble with digital, I can only say it all looks pretty swan-like to the observer.

      2. You are too kind sir! Actually it’s mainly things like accidentally wiping memory cards, pressing wrong buttons that kind of clumsy person problem, o_O but I can imagine the whole chemistry of film developing being very exciting but for someone like me a giant explosion just waiting to happen! 😕 😀

      3. I think the worst that can happen is a tummy upset if you swig any of the chemicals….
        I suppose that might be slightly explosive but not in the way you mean.
        I’ll try to avoid it anyway…Seems only fair to the other students.
        :/

  5. The colors are so fetching, so eye-popping, as well as the lines and curves. And who would have thought break discs could be so photogenic? See? I’m going to stick with my impressions earlier today. You could make boiling boots a masterpiece of photographic inspiration. I challenge you, Jane. 😛
