Two wheels – Two feels

You probably already know my passion for motorcycles. This post isn’t one of those posts that tells you how cool and fancy shmancy riding a bike is – you know – the “wild and free” kinda stuff. Although, Marija is smiling in the second photo 🤷🏻‍♂️.

In the holy land

Some shots I took while visiting Jerusalem. I really like the Kentmere films and together with the Pentax Pino camera it makes a perfect travel kit!

Lost Souls

We all look for a way to save ourselves from the harsh reality. Each of us find different ways to do that. For me – one way is music.

I follow you

I, I follow, I follow you
Deep sea baby, I follow you
I, I follow, I follow you
Dark doom honey, I follow you

Following Maria in Amsterdam
Just some plant

I like following Maria. I like taking pictures of her. Maria likes all kinds of plants. I like taking pictures of her watching blossoming plants. 

I think Maria looks nice between plants. She talks to them.

Tram in Amsterdam. At first I thought that it was out of focus but then realised it is even better this way.

I like to follow Maria in trams and trains. She wanders through the window into the nature and people.

I also have to follow her instructions. Even though at that time I might not look like I am enjoying that, but – I like following her. She looks happy while taking photos of me.

The Feel of Freedom

I’ve been thinking about writing a story post for a while now. Didn’t feel like doing it until now, though. But recently I took a good series of motorcycle photos and thought that I want to tell you more about how motorcycles make me feel.

First wind

My relationship with motorcycles started a long time. When I was a kid my parents had an old Iž Planeta 5 motorcycle. My dad would take me together when going somewhere with it. I remember how I loved feeling the wind going through my hair. Later, when I was around 12 years old I got my first bike – Riga moped. It had pedals and a small two-stroke engine. I remember how I used to push that bike for it to start. When I had it I understood that I can tinker it a bit and it would run better and faster. Guess that’s the time I started to work on machines.

It did not disappear

The love for motorcycles didn’t go anywhere. From those days I knew that I would always ride a bike. It makes me feel confident. As a matter of fact – just yesterday I had my driving exam and passed it! ? Now I can ride whatever motorcycle I want; no more restrictions! ?

Owning a motorcycle

There is something special about owning and riding a motorcycle. One thing is that you have to work on your motorcycle. You have to take care of it if you want it to be trustworthy. It’s like having a real relatioship – you have to put effort and show respect if you want to receive the same. It might look like your motorcycle should be the one serving you. And that is true. You should not be your motorcycle’s slave. But don’t expect your motorcycle to do all the work!

Riding a motorcycle

Another thing about motorcycles that drives me is when you ride your motorcycle. IT JUST FEELS DAMN GOOD! It makes me feel calm and restores confidence. I feel that I can achieve anything I want when I ride my motorcycle. And the community of motorcycle drivers – you feel as a part of people who likes the feel of freedom; people who is open-minded; people who loves motorcycles. You even greet other motorcyclists when you meet them on road! ?

I guess that’s it for now. Maybe I inspired you a bit to get yourself a motorcycle and join this journey. If not – at least I hope you liked the photos! Have a good one!
