Week 7 #23 Letters


I’m not a Harley rider but, my brother in law Kayce is. On our last trip to Alaska I spotted, well you can’t miss it really, his bike parked in the driveway. I thought it might be fun to take a few shots of his bike, print one and send it to him. While looking over the theme list number 7 jumped out at me. Not only is 7 a lucky number for our family, Kayce is actually the 7th child of 7 children. I knew I could use the shots of his bike somehow in a theme. I cropped in the metal lettered words Harley Davidson and played around with the sharpness, coloring and lighting of the shot. Worthy of framing? I think I will soon find out from the rider himself!

I have always enjoyed photography, but with encouragemet from family and friends over the past several years I began to realize I really love it! Belonging to this blog and a local digital photo group has challenged me to look at the beauty of the world and to enjoy capturing it with my camera.

  15. I am sure he will love it. I like the simplicity of the shot. It leaves the mind free to wander and imagine images of the bike itself. Great processing too.
