Red Docs

Composition | unusual imagery for an old Trumpet. What looks like a golf course with a scrap yard provides a photoshopped backdrop for a portrait of the owners daughters. It’s like an 80’s album cover.

Woman Strong

Racer, metal fabricator, mechanic, TV personality Jessi Combs was killed while trying to push the envelope for a women’s speed record. She died tearing across a dry lake bed in Oregon in her rocket powered car at over 400mph. A strong talented person, she was an encouraging inspiration to girls and women nationwide. RIP Jessi Combs (1980-2019)

The Avengers

Kinky Boots | As Patrick Macnee (John Steed) & Honor Blackman (Cathy Gale) sang back in 1964:

Full length, half length,
Fully fashion calf length,
Brown boots, black boots,
Patent leather jackboots,
Low boots, high boots,
Lovely lanky thigh boot,
We all dig those boots..”

Nice Trident & Commando too!

Single Point

Campagne brouiller | Blurred vision of rurality. As the Memorial Weekend approaches then plans can be made for trips out of the hustle and bustle of the City. Leafy roads and sleepy villages under a lofty sun.

Bobbina | Across the decades women have been as keen riders as men. It can certainly be seen here with an early incarnation of a bobber followed by the latest model in the Triumph line.
