'Back in the Day'

Post by davechinn » Mon Sep 23, 2019 11:08 am

This a composite of a 1920 Indian motorcycle taken at a local car show last week-end. I decided to place the bike on Route 66, taken in 2015, a favorite I have used on previous composites. The bike was already in a vintage state which seemed to help my post processing. I just roughed it up a little and placed it onto Route 66, which seemed appropriate for the theme, 'Back in the Day'.
Suggestions and comments most appreciated.

very cool Dave. I never gave much thought to the fact that motorcycles have now existed for over 100 years, and that the look of it is not that dissimilar to some of the current day classic styles. I am thinking our interstate system was built decades later and was thinking that probably it was a "dirt bike" back in the day, but this thinking is likely wrong and tar roads were more common than I think. But still, if you can figure out something iconic from the 20s that would fit in... Like a bunch of babes from the 20's admiring current day bearded Dave in timeless clothing sitting on this bike.

Very cool rendition. The vintage treatment (Classic Chinn) is great for this subject, and the simplicity of the composition lets it work its magic. Very nicely done.

Thanks Piet !!! Actually this bike reminded me of "The Wizard of Oz", mostly because of the basket on the back. I thought about Toto and placing a dog similar in the basket with a dirt farm road scene. Altho I do like your thinking of placing babes of the 20's. I don't have any of those, but do have some dressed up in the 40's. Not sure if that would work and I may give it a try. Oh, and if I had some Steampunk outfits you can bet your a.. I would be all over selfies !!! Humm, I'll have to think about that one. (!) (!)

Thanks Minnie !!! Piet has given me some ideas to think about, so more may come in the works ... at a later date, of course.

LOL, and I figured there was a reason that was slowly building that cause you stopped the bike, get off it, and stroll to the side of the deserted road. Clearly you had business to take care off!

LOL, it does look as thou business was needed, by the position of my hands, but I'm actually holding my camera. I never gave any thought to that, but I will agree.
