Living In The Fast Lane | 2015

Now that we are towards the end of January, I can reflect at 2015 as a year of fun on two wheels, hell there were times when I was living in the fast lane. I hit a stupid fast personal best top speed of 168 mph, rode a slew of different kinds of motorcycles; from Harley Davidson’s Sportsters and Dynas to Suzuki’s, Triumphs, and even a Can Am Spyder. Since I live in the wonderful San Francisco Bay Area, I had the opportunity to ride year round from the FREEZING December weather to scorching 100 degree weather. Rode with friends and family throughout the Bay from Stinson Beach to Alison’s and Four Corners to Angel’s Camp. Had one too many close calls while splitting lanes to riding with a friend that low sided. 2015 gave me a solid year of riding under my belt while at the same time gives me excitement as to what 2016 will bring. I leave with you below a video montage of my 2015 year. See you out there on the streets and ride safe.

Throw Back Thursday: Google+ Photowalk w/ Trey Ratcliff

Back in 2011, when Google+ was only available through invite, I went on my very first photowalk. I was, still am, New into the world of photography so I though that this would be a great experience. And it sure was!

The photowalk took place on the campus of Standford. There were a ton of people that came out for this photo walk, big names and everyday people like myself. Thomas Hawk was there and it was pretty cool watching my buddy Joe Ercoli about art and his personal project that he was working on Flickr.

I learned that there are a lot of friendly and helpful photogs (photographers) out there. Many of photogs like to talk gear and techniques. I also learned that I needed a tripod as the day got darker.

Here’s one of the photos that I took from the photowalk, the James H. Clark Center:

The photo with my camera resting on my camera bag. I don’t know the settings and what it was shot with (I’m blogging from my phone so I don’t have all the details on me). All I know is thatthis was one of my first attempts to HDR. The photo is eh, it’s a decent start.

Standford is an amazing and gorgeous campus. I can’t to go back and take pictures of there. I’ll probably need a whole afternoon on the campus since the place is so vast.
