NAHBS: Day Two Portraits

I shot more than 200 images today yesterday and there’s no way to both upload all of them now AND sleep tonight. So I’ve selected a group of portraits I shot. They were fun and the subjects delightful. Or maybe they are delightful and the subjects were fun. Regardless, as tired as I was when the show ended today, I didn’t really want to walk out.

Leading off the set is Sacha White of Vanilla, who I caught while he was making a small adjustment to my favorite booth of the show.

As a result, his frames are austere, but warm to the business end of the peloton.

Even if we never remembered Don Walker’s famous fillet-brazed frames, as the organizer of NAHBS, his place in the frame building world would be assured. If he wasn’t doing NAHBS, he’d be doing more frames.

David Wages of Ellis (it’s a family name) hangs out and talks to fans.

    Ha! I’m pretty certain that’s Mike DeSalvo of DeSalvo Cycles. I can’t wait for him to get back to the Rogue Valley so I can call up and ask for Sean. Too funny.
