HK Ride yesterday afternoon!

Harry and I went for a ride to Shek O (for those of you who knows about this
place in HK). I took my D80 for a still shoot but Harry said "OK, you ride and
I'll take the photos". I basically went " I was only thinking of taking stills"
He said "You go ride your Brutale and I'll take some memorable photos for you."
So I rode my bike and he took some photos. That's not the end of the story. I
took some photos for him as well.

Enjoy the photos!

PS: BTW, for those of you who are photographers too. Harry is a photographer
too but he didn't seem to use his skills. Also, I used a 50mm F1.8 and he used a
70~300 F4.5~5.6 so I couldn't say it's fair for him. One more thing, I've edited
the photos so don't expect the original to look like that! That's all!

It was all because of the photographer at the time whilst I was riding.

If he knew how to use my D80. I'd have a lot more photos.

BTW, I wonder what his 18~200mm F3.5~5.6 would look like at 18mm.
Would there be lots of barrel distortion or is the lens good enough to cure that problem....

Here is the motorcycling culture in HK.

I don't think leathers are popular in HK and don't think they are good sellers.
Not even pants or boots.

BTW, I didn't take these photos for blurry purpose but was trying to pan with 1/150.
I'm not good enough to do a perfect pan. Still practicing
