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)

My first experience with Chimay was ordering a pitcher of it off of a menu without prices.

The orientation of the pictures is maddening and irritating. Wouldn't have rotated them over onto their sides personally

I was going to say that you have good taste in beer, but Chimay, out of a pint glass? What kind of a cretin are you, everyone knows you need chalice, or at least a tulip glass.

Oh I'd never criticize another artist's work. I truly do believe the msot important person who should be happy with their expression is the artist themselves, I just know that most people who shoot appreciate hearing someone else's opinion on their work.


As for my blog, I need to be less lazy and actually update it with some of my new work, haha

your reactions are all dear to me.

quite literally, the bike was on it's side on the floor of my loft, hence the horizontal orientation. i was drinking chimay and the world seemed more beautiful and inspired me to shoot at f/8.

more in the same vein.
