About a year ago, I had the chance to borrow this awesome bike and take it for a spin, I never really did anything with the footage, so I figured now that I have a lot of free time I use it to work on improving some of my editing skills. The bike is a red Ducati Evo 848, the gear I borrowed along with the bike came with a Gopro Hero 5 on top of the helmet which is what captured the trip around my town; Watsonville, and its surrounding beaches and back-roads. The song was playing on the background when I brought back the footage to look at it, and I said to myself how I missed that and I wanted to experience something like that again, so the lyrics and the song came together pretty nicely. So, in memory of one of the great days of my life… 🙂
I happened to be cleaning some of the drives I have and got myself looking at some old footage when I was doing some photo sessions and then as I had my music going the song Days go by started playing, and then I just had to do a video, it just felt right. With a big smile on my face as I was reminiscing those days and then getting myself to compare the mentality, the style, everything about my artistic self and persona from then and now. It’s always nice getting the opportunity to see how much you have grown or changed.
Thinking back on those days I think I might have been a bit more egotistic and thought I knew everything about photography, 5 years later I now feel there is so much more I could learn and so many things I still have left to experience and do, Photography is one of those paths that never ends and always leads you to something better.
