This Thursday - September 25th - Beam & Anchor - 5-9pm.
Our man Jake Szymanski put together a little photo show that will be unveiled at B&A later this week. Under the banner of finding cool shit cycling in the Pacific Northwest, the show is a veritable who's who of PNW Cycling. Team Wooly Mammoth is more than over represented and that is how we like it.
Julie and I culled a few photos for the exhibition - well, everyone did ten, actually - and the process itself was a fun trip back through the timeline of your instagram account. The requirements were 1) they had to be photos taken in the Pacific Northwest and 2) they had to somehow relate to cycling.
Jake printed the photos and mounted them on old barn planks and is conceivably making them into a few large timelines that will hang in the space above the Beam & Anchor shops. Word on the street is that he is producing some sort of publication to help cover his costs, which seems like a smart idea.
Who is participating?
There are a few of the usual suspects in there, but I am genuinely curious to see everyone's collections on Thursday. From the few small snippets that I have seen there is also some interesting overlap with the photos - turns out that foggy sunny day that Julie, Patrick and I had on the bike back in December was memorable to those two as well - and that's the kind of shared experience that we're looking for.
The other thing that I found interesting when going back through my own photos was the ability of the photo to instantly place me back in the spot where I took it. The below photo being a part of the pallet factory ride and how I was immediately transported to that spot, on that day with Bo and Julie, Tim and a few other characters.
I have always been vocal about the fact that I take a lot of pictures to remember these rides and the way that they unfold, and this is exactly why (and because I have a crap memory). So, come out and drink a few adult beverages and check out some great mobile photography from the likes of these fine folks.
Here are the rest of the cast of characters participating...
