May Day Photo shooting. Part 1.

The May come with a warm days, green leaves, blooming flowers and all other charming Spring staff. So I decided it’s time to interrupt garage works at least for a day and to get some ride and following photo shooting of “Eight Ball”. Nothing special: no models and no guys with big cameras and even larger lenses, no pre – rehearsed photo-session, no make-up, and what a pity (as it turned out), no sandwiches and drinking water, just me, my old colt base level Canon EOS, two friends of mine on another bike and idea, which sounds like “ride-and-shoot”.

In the first May morning we began to realize our idea. Firstly, I led our little group to the old part of city. A couple of places with interesting morning light:

The one navigation error which cost as some kilometers of battered ground roads, a bit of roundabout riding and we were on the river bank right under bridge. Good reason for improvised photo session!

Then we found that we could easily climb to lower level of the unfinished bridge. Nice occasion for some walking and photoshooting!
