Thoughts of a Ride


After I took this shot of this BMW bike in front of Legends gallery I noticed this young woman in the window looking at the bike I was shooting. I wonder if she was daydreaming of going for a ride.

I hope you have wonderful things planned for your weekend. I'm off on the High Road Studio tour. It's a long drive but you get the chance to see some great art and meet the artists in their studios.

You ought to have taken her for a ride on it, Randy! A little Thursday drive around Santa Fe.

A legend bike in front of a legend gallery. How great is this.Perfect.
Randy, tell me the truth, it's your bike and you placed it direct in front of the gallery.
And the woman looking, and some view of the art inside. Incredible good.

Have a great weekend Randy. The studio tour sounds fantastic. You chose the right place to live.

Looks like a lovely young woman. If that was my bike, I'd surely give her a ride. Did you? :-)

Have a fun weekend.

parker said...

Picture within a Picture and both subjects are attractive. Seems she might be an employee and that Bike could be Her 'Escape' for the weekend! Enjoy yours.

Lúcia said...

The picture wouldn't be the same without her.
Have a good weekend! ;-)

Ron said...

Nice shot! The lighting is great.

Are you sure she wasn't looking at you instead of the bike?

Luis Gomez said...

Nice ride, beautiful woman. Great picture Randy.

Tracy said...

Maybe it belongs to her. Hmmm. Enjoy your weekend, Randy. It sounds fantastic!

Sharon said...

We get a lot of bikers riding through our hills, especially in the fall when the colors are changing. Have a wonderful weekend!

Great composition, Randy. There is much interaction in this scene, and you captured it beautifully. (zoom-zoom)

Enjoy your studio tour and bring back lots of photos!

Bises,

Now wouldn't it be fun to ride this on the High Road to Taos to tour the art galleries? I know that you will have a blast!

Regina K said...

Oh to be on the High Road at this time of year sounds enchanting. Enjoy.

Maybe the girl was waiting for the rider to return.

In another life I dream of owning a motorcycle....

JM said...

Cool BMW! Enjoy your weekend and take a lot of photos. :-)

Leif Hagen said...

Vroom, vroom! I thin the Sanfa Fe blogger was daydreaming about a ride, too....

Teresa said...

That was an interesting shot! Nice when you get something unexpected.

I rode on that bike. Great brand. Shape reminds me a bit of our old Jawa motorcycles. Enjoy a nice weekend and a great way. Peter.

A Beamer Bike--very cool. Maybe it is her bike and can't wait to put on her jeans and boots and cruise!. MB

Daniel said...

Deja vu... a weekend away focused on art. The irony, a beautiful photo in front of a gallery with not one but two subjects.

Have yourself a wonderful weekend mon ami.

Halcyon said...

I love this shot! The woman in the window makes it.

Magpie said...

I agree with Leia! I wonder if the woman in the window knows she's now famous? Great capture!
