Michelle and I met up last Friday morning in the outskirts of Phoenix to shoot some portraits of her on her bike. You might recall Michelle was one of my 2009 Arizona brides and now I am helping her with a new project. She has recently gotten back into being an avid bicyclist and spends her mornings peddling, coasting, enduring and sweating along the roads north of Phoenix. We spent a couple hours together with Michelle racing around and looping back while I photographed her in action. And repeat. One more time. OK a couple more times. Circle around again. One more loop. Etc, etc, etc. I still think she had the easy part, just ride like the wind, while I got to dodge cars, crawl around, lay on the pavement, pick gravel out of my knees and so on. Working on new photography projects is definitely exciting and challenging.
