Two wheels, one road
Big heart, my code
One wreck, one scar
Untamed, so far
Highway, my way
Where to? I say
Hold tight, my soul
It’s time, let’s roll
- R Turnbow

Canon 7D, f/4.5, .5 s, ISO-100, 28mm

Self portrait, no layers, DOF added in PS Elements, final lighting, HDR effect, and shading in PS Lightroom.

I am self taught, with an imagination that will not stop. I started drawing as a kid, and dabbled with correspondence art school but never took art in high school or college because I felt it might constrain me. I was wrong, but no crying over spilled milk.

    Hi Randy – Your face… speaks of the importance of who you are. How you are leaning on your bike shows that it is a friend, a highly respected friend. Your words… further definition, brings it all to reality. This is a pure winner of a photograph. Now… how can you talk the DMV into letting this image be the photo on your driver’s license, that would be awesome!!!


  • Wow Roger, thanks for taking the time for such thoughtful commentary. It’s true, my bike is my friend that I trust to keep me safe, to carry my weight, to deliver me so to speak. I can’t get it on my DL but I could sure get it on my credit card! Cheers…
