Log Ride #2

Posted by
Mooie (Vancouver, Canada) on 18 September 2012 in Sport & Recreation and Portfolio.

I'm hoping there will be a Log Ride #3 because now I know how I'd like to capture it better.... but there is a limit to the number of times you can ask a friend to risk life and limb on one ride for the sake of a photograph.

I am not sure how or when, but posting on this blog has become my most accurate platform for creative expression. It's so inspiring to browse through other blogs and every comment is very appreciated!

gerard1948 from Santiago de Compostela, Spain

Superb, you have succeeded to capture the effect of speed, a pretty picture.

18 Sep 2012 5:32am

@gerard1948: Thanks! I must admit that it's an illusion born from a happy mistake. I was moving and so it looks like he is going faster than he probably is. Probably turned out to look more interesting this way though.

maurizio jaya costantino from Trieste, Italy

yesterday I thought "deeply, Moiie is a romantic!"
today: a very modern romantic !!!!

@maurizio jaya costantino: Haha! I'm not sure what in this photo screams romantic or modern... but I like the idea of being modern romantic even though I'm sure anyone that knows me will dispute that!

Nazzareno from Rome, Italy

Great capture... Were you on motorcycle near ? :)

18 Sep 2012 6:32am

@Nazzareno: Thanks! And no.. I was sort of thrashing through the thick brush beside on foot. He is really not going that fast.... I think it was a little dark for my phone and I was moving so it looks fast :-)

CElliottUK from Reading, United Kingdom

Asking friends to do unnatural acts is what they are there for! Likin' the shot, likin' the style, likin' the insight into you.

18 Sep 2012 10:37am

@CElliottUK: Ha, well I know that, it's just sometimes they don't know that :-) Thanks a lot... although I thought I was doing well to remain mysterious.

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

Nice motion action shot.

18 Sep 2012 9:18pm

@B. Thomas: Thank you!

Rick from Toronto, Canada

The motion is great here : having the rider in focus against the moving background would have detracted from that kinetic energy. I love the shot and the fact that you hope for a log ride #3 :)

18 Sep 2012 9:28pm

@Rick: Thanks a lot! Though the moving background wasn't planned... .I'm happy with the way it turned out. Hoping to snap a shot of number 3 later today :-)
