saddled . . .

When asked to do a shoot for these two talented musicians, this scene is the first thing that came to mind. We set up my Road King in the driveway and with a leaf blower, added some effect. The results hopefully captured the crazy fun nature of Dave Richardson and Jan Schmidt.
 
Also . . . this:

hope is the thing with feathers . . .

“Hope” is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops – at all –
And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –
And sore must be the storm –
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm –
I’ve heard it in the chillest land –
And on the strangest Sea –
Yet – never – in Extremity,
It asked a crumb – of me.
~Emily Dickinson
