come along for the ride
My goal for February 2012 is to post unique pictures of women on motorcycles that capture the imagination. The picture below is my first in the series of photo blogs for this month. This particular image spoke to me because it alludes to the idea of the a motorcycle being a “mechanical horse” My motorcycle is essentially my mechanical horse. When I quit riding horses I chose to fill that void with a motorcycle.
“Mixing the old and the new, photographer Greg Mac Gregor’s “Highway 41, New Mexico,” 2009, shows a young woman decked out in cowboy hat and boots and shorts astride her motorcycle or “mechanical horse.” It is a kind of tongue-in-cheek Western fashion shot.
