I hadn’t shot anything for a week or so and was getting a little antsy to make some images happen last week, so I hit up my good buddy D to see if he wanted to go cruise Lookout Mountain in Golden and get some shots. Normally I hate going on a shoot without an idea of what I want to get, but on this day I decided to just say fuck it and see what’d happen. The road was jam packed with road cyclists as usual which made it hard to get the up-close action I was hoping for. I didn’t want to get run over by a power ranger going 30+ mph downhill, nor did I want D to clobber one of them on his beast of a bike. So we pulled over and got some portraits instead. Pretty stoked on a few of them.
