New Motovlog Post – Mothers Day – Night Photography

First off, I want to wish my Mom a Happy Belated Mothers Day! I meant to call you but got caught up with this and that that I forgot. By the time I realized that I haven’t called you, it was late in the night. However I did create a FB post wishing you a Happy Mothers Day… Does that count?

It has been quite a busy week for me so far. Been riding a lot around the City, grabbed diner with a friend that I haven’t seen for a while, went to an A’s game, and had some drinks to celebrate a friends birthday. On top of all that I’ve been on working creating content for my motovlog. Low and behold I have a new post up!

By creating new content for my motovlog meant that I had to be out riding more. Yay!.. So far this past week I’ve been out with the Lil Green Monster taking pics at night around San Francisco. These trips through the City at night were more like detours on the way home so the time out actually shooting was fairly short. Even though short, I learned a lot while taking pics with my iPhone in the dark, those learnings were that:

  • An iPhone is not a DSLR (I knew this already but with the size, the flexibility, and apps one can create stunning pictures with an iPhone).
  • I would like a DSLR if I ever plan on printing out my photos.
  • Carrying a light portable tripod, a flashlight, and a collapsable reflector can benefit me in accomplishing a better composition, produce or add more light on the subject, and easing the way to capture a long exposure.
  • No need to rush but still have a sense of urgency while taking photos at locations that can have me in trouble.

As eventful and busy this week has been, I am enjoying myself and appreciating time with family and friends.

I Ride For The Therapy

One of the best things about riding a motorcycle is that riding itself can be very therapeutic. Had a lot on my mind and to help clear my mind I like to just go on rides to anywhere. Most of the time I just get in my car/get on my bike and just hit the pavement. However today I decided to take a drive to Stinson Beach after work, catch the sunset for a bit, and take some pics.

What do you do to get some clarity when you have a lot on your mind, especially when it comes to life altering decisions?

I need new tires!!

My third post, yay! Instead of sharing my thoughts, I’m seeking advice. I need a new tire for my rear. If the price is right, I’ll pull the trigger on it.

What kind of set up do you all have for your bike? Any brands that you like over the others?
