Thanks Steven! The wife thought I did pretty well too, when I came home with the paycheck!
And the "naysayers" are wrong about the car too!
I had just passed IT!!
That was probably the most FUN I have ever had "working"!
Ripping through city traffic on the F-115 of bicycles, tie flapping in the wind, cameraman mounted on a motorscooter, flashing picture after picture, as we zipped through town.
At red lights, I stay clipped in, and held myself up by putting my fingertips down. Kinda tricky at first, but I quickly got the hang of it.
And heck, if the artist doing the poster/ad campaign had wanted "sexier",..I am an experienced model and had on hand a complete spandex/lycra racing "kit". Looks kind of space alien to be all "raced out" on that bike. But that's not what the art director wanted.
So I went with the "IBM guy applying for a job at Apple Computers" (from the movie Pirates of Silicone Valley. You remember that scene don't you?!?) look. Complete with pocket protector!
I wanted to wrap some tape around the middle of my shades.
They all laughed.....NO!
All in all, I don't care what they do with my picture.
I got paid hansomely to rip around S.F. on my favorite recumbent!
...wearing a tie!
