Out of order

In a moment of fear
You dig in your heels
The pills won’t help you now
Once you’re crying

There are people which doesn’t get too attached to their home. They like to go out all the time and just need a place to sleep. Another type of people is those to whom home is very important. Me and Maria are these kind of people. As much as we love to go out, travel, etc. We really love spending time at home – ours or one of our parents.

He was a boy, she was a girl
Can I make it any more obvious?
Oh and beautiful TT which is gone now. 
A girl. 
And a boy. 
He's just a boy and I'm just a girl
Can I make it any more obvious?
We are in love, haven't you heard
How we rock each other's world?

A little throwback

Some time ago, probably around 2016, I took these photos on an evening ride with my friends. I can’t recall if it was really Kodak Gold film, but probably.

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!

 

Unnamed

I really like these two photos. Especially the second one. I like the details in it – the sharpness in the skin, the eyes, the mood of it! And of course – my Maria! 🙂

I took this photo on a ferry to Saaremaa on our anniversary trip to the place where it all started. I had my beloved Zenit 122 camera with Kentmere 100 film in it (which add grainy look I love).

Mirror mirror… But I’m not a mirror

I really like that we share the same passion – photography. What’s funny is that we have a lot of photos from ‘both sides’. That’s why I call it ‘Mirror mirror’.
