Photographer's Note

Something a little different today. A transport photo presented from my POV. This is what I see everyday during my commute around the city, except there are no cars ahead of me today.

Taken at over 100km/h hands-free down the highway..the things I would do for photography...

This is not the first time I've taken photos like this, but it is the first with a fully manual mechanical camera. Prior to getting on the road I preset the focus + exposure, wrap it around my neck, practice holding it in the right place since I won't be able to compose with my helmet on. Brace the camera on my chest to stabilize and snap. That's about it. It may look scary but a bike is usually very stable at high speeds and won't sway much since momentum is carrying it forward. For this shot I got up to about 130km/h before letting go the gas to take the photo. Again, shot in colour (Fuji NPH400) and converted to B&W in photoshop.
