Good Morning Everyone! You’re not going to believe it, but I actually left my office in Huntington Beach & hit the road for a day off with a good friend of mine; Chris Diset.
We were introduced to each other in February at WPPI by our Associate Photographer; Tracey over at Two Rings & A Dress. And since then, we”ve both been wanting to take a “sanity day.” Now that the season is getting into full swing, we thought – why not & hit Ortega Highway on Saturday.
But being the couple photographers that we are, we couldn’t just go out on our motorcycles, we had to take enough gear that required a tank bag for Chris & my Boblbe-e backpack.
Our day started off at The Lookout Roadhouse for a massive carb-filled breakfast and after a couple of hours of chatting, we headed out on the road. As we whipped our way in out of the twisties in Ortega Canyon, we found a couple of places to catch some good video & photos of each other riding.
Eventually we took a break & headed to Chris’ house to download the photos & check out the video that we shot & then headed back out for a bit to eat at Cook’s Corner in Trabuco Canyon and then with a quick last ride that had some SERIOUS bends in the road. I was soooo in 1st gear on them!
Here’s a video that I put together with iMovie over the past couple of days. It’s my first crack at the software so please don’t rake me over the coals on it. I’m just a photographer – not nearly as video savvy as Vu & Lan Bui from the Bui Brothers.
I hope you enjoy the video & have a great Cinco de Mayo – cheers!
