Usually on Sunday’s some folks head to a brick and mortar place where they have mass, or some type of church. Last Sunday I went to a Chrome Mass in Leesburg, Florida for their 18th annual Bike Fest ( leesburgbikefest.com ). I’ve visited a similar event Roar On The Shore ( roarontheshore.com) in Erie, Pennsylvania and it was much the same but at a slightly bigger scale. If someone needed anything for their motorcycles, you’d have no problem finding it – like most events I’d imagine it’s this way as well, this was only my second Chrome Mass to date.
The main idea for visiting this event was to get the dust off my camera and get behind it again. I didn’t take as many as I had wanted to, but between texting a few pictures to my girlfriend and taking more with my Canon 60D, I did get a few interesting pictures. I realized very quickly that most folks are “ok” with a picture taken with a smart phone, while have a lens pointed in their direction was a bit unsettling. I learned from this event of what to take, when to take it, and what to take it with – this isn’t a crowd you’d want to look peculiar in snapping lots of pictures with a camera. Moving on.
Following are some pictures that I snapped at the event. Most notable were the red Ford trike and the gold custom-built by West Coast Choppers. So many bikes to photograph, but I saved my SD card for the ones that stood at to me. There some pink in here two, I’m always on the lookout for pink stuff that might make my girlfriend say “hmm, that’s kinda cute…” Sadly she wasn’t there, but hopefully for the next bike fest she will be.
Hopefully you’ll enjoy looking at these as much as I did taking them.
