So a few years ago, when I started really getting into taking photos, I became drawn to these “modern street photographers” that were taking to the air and photographing out of helicopters. I always thought that was such a dope perspective on a city like New York. Its a place that you can easily get lost in, but it also seems so small from above. Anyway, my friend, B, recently presented me with the idea to take a ride in a chopper, and as much as I wanted to delay this opportunity out of uncertainty, I couldn’t say no. The biggest deterrent wasn’t so much the cost (cheers to Black Friday Sales!) but more so that I didn’t know if i was afraid of heights (spoiler alert- I’m not). But enough words, Ill let the few images do the rest of the talking. And I strongly encourage anyone curious to go for it, as it was AWESOME (but very cold).  


So I guess this blog thing is gonna be updated annually? Lets hope not. 

Last weekend(July 6-9), a couple of us tripped out to Mid Ohio Sports Car Course for the AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days Meet. This was my first time in attendance, so I was a little skeptical, mostly due to the location, but i’m always open to new experiences. So we secured our dirtbikes to our trucks and set out for the 8 hour drive to our dirtbike and camping weekend. 

All in all, it was a great time! I met alot of new faces (shout out to the guys over at Cast & Salvage Garage in Philly) and got a better feel for my bike. My photos don’t do the event justice(mostly cause I was riding, watching races, and taking advantage of some swap meet deals), but you will definitely get an understanding of how two…and three… well just all-wheeled machines can bring so many people together from all over. Enjoy!
