Acrylic on canvas, 50x33 cm.

I like it. My picture making has been limited to snaps with my iPhone, lately

Here's one I shot of my grandparents getting ready to board the first ever international flight out of Port Angeles, WA. (To Victoria, BC) Probably around 1927 or so. OK, I my iPhone and I weren't there at the time, but we were at our annual "Cousins' Day" picnic out at the lake. My uncle had this photo hanging on the wall, so I took it down to get a copy of it with my phone.


And to make this post more vintage-bike related, here's their great-granddaughter Cierra just getting ready to ride home from the party on her early 80s Nishiki International. At a little over 5' 11" she and I are the same height. We compared arms and legs, and by golly, my first-cousin-once-removed is biometrically pretty much my twin. ( I've got a good thirty or forty pounds on her though.) Apart from terrific good looks, I guess the vintage bike appreciation runs in the family, too
