Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Im impressed

i was just cruising around the old interweb and came across Absntr's site....I have to say I am amazed by his pictures...and have recently become my desktop background...it seems to me that there must be a direct corellation between riding fixed and being talented and artistic. I just wanted to throw it out there at how impressed i was by Absntr's work....keep it up

BTW How many other photodogs do we have in here. I can admit to being one myself, however amature I never take of without my camera...

I design microchips.

That's not very artistic... I can play my trumpet pretty loudly, though, that's artistic, right?

giving an artistic shoutout to WeedEater, great graphic design. I can understand why your clients would want to continue doing business with you after you move to Portland, Oregon.

I am a photographer, and a rather obsessed one at that. My sh*t can be found here.

I also dig Naz's work and check it regularly.

Yes, i just found a decentish print (sold one, kept one, gave 2 away as gifts and the rest were off register) and was just telling Josh that i want your address to mail you a print. PM me.

Also, i really like your sawmill worker photo (among others).

I'm interested in doing a series of paintings of blue collar workers. Go out, photograph them and paint them.


**** ya.

I've read the thread about the pink Deep V's being stolen...-but not the one about how they were gotten back. Is there a link to the story?
