Ridin' into the New Year
Closing the book on 2017. Starting a new one for 2018. For many of us 2017 just flat out seemed to be one of those years. Maybe one of those years we are ready to close the book on. Lost a very special friend in 2017. That's Kevin in the photograph. Always a smile on his face. Always a special friend. Met him over 30 years ago. He was just 19 when he knocked on my studio door lookin' for a job. He kept knockin'. Every month for almost a year. Then one day we started working together. Solid, strong, dependable, honest. Years went by. We rode many miles together on two wheels. Made thousands of photographs in the studio. Never forget the first day in the studio together. He came in all dressed up wearing a brand new sweatshirt. On the front in very large print "Crotch Rocket". We had to tame that down a bit, it all worked out.
Going to miss you Kevin. Miss you a lot. Can feel your spirit with the thump of the motor and sound of two wheels on the road. Can see the sun on your back and the smile on your face. Ride on brother.
be strong, be safe, Talon
