While I was at BAMF, I had Ken Toda shoot 2 of my bikes. Worth every penny.

I walked by while the Frejus was on the rack. I thought about stealing it. If I had known he was there, and what the show was like, I'd have brought my bikes to get photo'd. I'm very much planning on the weekend pass next year.

I'm a fan of the St. Christopher medal (at least I think that's what that is). Was reading on someone's blog (Lovely Bicycle?) about someone getting one of those from a "retired" vintage bike and always thought it'd be cool to have one even though I'm not Catholic.

Very nice, wish I had a bit more space to set up a proper backdrop and lighting setup here at the house to shoot my collection. Could probably do it if I cleaned up the bike room from the mess left behind after assembling the Space Horse and invested in some DIY lighting solutions on the cheap...

If you figure out how to do that, please share. Actually, I need to ask a couple co-workers who are photo nuts, too. I have a couple bikes that need proper photos taken of them.

We've all heard of bike porn. This is more like "bike boudoir." And I'm a sucker for it!

Sharp, crisp images. The colours look natural along with the silvers'. Great photos of 2 great bikes.

It's simple. Yet not so simple. It's amazing what a white cove and the proper lights can do. Emphasis on proper lights.
