Biker Pup at Bikes, Blues and BBQ

This pup is a crowd stopper. Sitting quietly in a nice leather backpack, his owner said that this dog is followed across the internet as he travels from rally to rally, no one with a camera can resist taking his photo (I can testify) and then post them on the internet (double testify). What a cutie!

Galleries are now being processed, divided by day and location. Please allow 3-7 days for image processing and uploads.

5th Annual POW MIA Tribute Ride

On September 18 the 5th Annual POW MIA Tribute Ride was conducted from Lokomotion Fun Park to Avoca City Park. The ride culminated with a ride-by in front of a newly erected memorial in honor of those deserving military heroes who have sacrificed. The memorial was funded by local veterans organizations, businesses and residents donating money, labor, materials and time. The gallery is still being produced, most all riders are now online with scenes from the ceremony to be loaded over the next day or so. This was a very moving event, the riders expressions of tribute were clearly evident as can easily be recognized from the photos. It was an honor to have been invited as a photographer for this event.

A few favorites from the Sheriff Ralph Baker Poker Run

These photos have obviously had some editing and enhancements applied to them. While this is great fun, it is also time consuming. It is only possible to do a few as examples (and for my own enjoyment!) when processing event photos. Any photo can be enhanced as seen in these samples provided. The Sheriff Ralph Baker Poker Run has been divided into three galleries and can be viewed by clicking here >>

Sheriff Ralph Baker Memorial Poker Run 9/4

Saturday, September 4 Aponi Shot participants in the Sheriff Ralph Baker Memorial Poker Run. The ride started in Huntsville at the Square, went north to Beaver, and then around Beaver Lake finally ending at Jose's on Dickson. I perched upon a post of the swinging bridge in Beaver at the Beaver Inn catching riders as they crossed from 10am until 1:45pm. Great shoot, fun perch, groovy bridge, awesome bikers! Hey there were a bunch of cool cars too!!
