Lately I’ve had several people stop and ask me about the somewhat crazy looking rig I’ve got clamped to my bike for making these images – even in traffic while riding. It always surprises me that anyone would notice but how could you miss it, I suppose. It’s a large black camera with a hefty lens perched on top of the steering post of my bike with a remote trigger strapped near my right hand.

Often I do stuff that seems logical to me and don’t even think about it until someone else points it out and that’s when I realize just how unusual it is.
