Had a rad time going with Killer Mike to meet Ric Flair and get his belt that was Ric’s signed. Afterward Holly and I went to the sound check at Philips Arena in downtown Atlanta. Run The Jewels is performing at the Hawks season opener. While we weren’t in town for the show, it was pretty rad standing on the court.
Killer Mike is a legendary Atlantan and we spent Saturday evening riding around downtown talking mad shit and taking pictures. He’s a Grammy winner and half of the hip hop duo, Run The Jewels. When Bernie Sanders’ campaign came through Atlanta, Mike introduced him the stage. Not one to keep his eggs in one basket, his barbershop, SWAG Shop, is growing and he’s opening more shops around town.
What a weekend at Road Atlanta filled with cars, fans, racing and partying. Grid Life is the perfect festival filled with cars and music. The track is open to all levels and drift runs were awesome. The big Saturday party closed out with headliner, Ludacris. I’m friends with with some of Chris’ crew and after showing them some pics from the day, Chris said it’d be cool for me to shoot on the stage.
Out of the showroom, the new Thruxton R is an attractive bike. This one has had some tasteful mods done by Standard Motorcycle Co down in Orlando. Nothing extreme, just some more black paint and powder, some tidying up the tail, etc.
The first Sunday of the month in Atlanta, we get up early head out to look at shiny motorized vehicles. This was the first one in a few months that it wasn’t raining. I like to take my camera and take pictures of what I like.
For those that are curious, these were all shot with a Sony A7Sii with a 50mm/f1.4 lens. I shoot in RAW format and process them with Adobe Lightroom. I shoot pretty mindful of my frame and if any cropping is done, it’s minimal.
