First and foremost, I really want to thank The Eazy Company @theeazyco for the hospitality, giving @chris_lacour @trashcan_vegan and I full access to the shop. It made me miss drinking beers, turning wrenches and the camaraderie with friends on weekdays.
We ventured up to Mass for the @newtraditioncompany bike show, from Penn, just ahead of what was to be a killer snow storm hoping that we can shoot as much as possible and be BACK on the road before shit really hit the fan. If you watched any of my stories, then you know, we almost never made it home. So...(thank you Chris for keeping your cool)
The idea was to cover the event by bringing two styles of photography. Chris on the digital end of the spectrum and myself using the most unconventional tool possible, a fucken Polaroid camera. Low-Fi.
Now, you're probably thinking, what the fuck does this have to do with the show? Trust me, it's relevant. Rarely do you see shops open its doors to host events. Even more rare, this one in the dead of winter. The turnout was amazing, the support from locals and folks from neighboring states was also strong. Over all....a great turnout. @choppahead brought this wicked Trike dubbed the Rum Runner. If you haven't checked out my buddy Chris IG, I highly suggest you check out a few shots from the event. I'm sure a feature on the event will be coming soon on @oldbikebarn website....so check that out.
As for me, I enjoyed myself for once. And got what I wanted to get. More behind the scenes stuff. Note to self. Bring more than just one film pack. Cold weather doesn't work well with Polaroid. And Polaroid doesn't work well period. But I made it work.
Above, slab-side shovel. Not even in a frame and it's pissing oil and a kitty litter catch. I still love it.
I can't wait to see what the guys create around this gem.
