Today's Shot 354



Peru Rail from the tracks near Aguas Calientes, Peru

Photographer Note: Great friend Robert Kent and I spent two hours walking the train tracks in the Andes Mountains because our train stranded us on a permit technicality. We were tired and frustrated but we were traveling. It's all about rolling with the punches. There's nothing like being on the tracks with the locals.

Today's Shot 353







Patrick Brady on his Captain America replica CMC chopper as seen in the movie Easy Rider with Peter Fonda - San Diego, California

Photographer Note: I was on my way to get a burrito when I saw this bike in front of a coffee shop. I waited until the owner came out and instantly struck up a conversation with the modern day wild man and free spirit. Originally from Ireland, he spoke of the time he met Peter Fonda aboard the motorcycle. "That's a great bike" Peter Fonda told Brady. For Brady it's about living life on your own terms and absolutely going for it all. He even offered to have me come stay on his apple farm in Julian. "you can stay in the teepee" he says. Cheers mate!

I would like to thank Patrick for traveling out to a shooting location to take these photographs.
