How cool is Bette? Somewhere out there is a dude sporting a tattoo of her riding her bike.

In reply to Toyman! :

Me, too. We both love the image. It’s warm, it’s honest. 

We spent most of yesterday taking photos–and, oddly, ran into the guy who fixes my gear.

Very fun day.

In reply to David S. Wallens :

I like that it doesn't look staged. It's a record of a split second in the real world, not necessarily what the subject or the photog was expecting, but real nonetheless. 

I wish I had your eye and dedication to the hobby. I appreciate you sharing it with us beyond what is necessary for the job.

Thank you and glad you’re enjoying it.

Bette and I have been discussing that shoot for a while. We’ve both been real busy the past month. 

Going in, I knew what I wanted. I purposely sat so the grill would be in the background. 

I had my camera on the table while eating. While her wife was paying the bill, I said, Time for a photo?

She made a funny face (the first shot) before giving me that look.

Click.

Click.

Click. 

All the while, I’m watching the employees behind her. I liked what I saw, people were waiting for a table, and her partner returned.

Let’s roll. 

Time from the first photo to the last? About 40 seconds.

Louiche Mayorga, who wrote many of Suicidal Tendencies’ classics, currently on tour with Luicidal, a group of OG members playing songs from the first albums. It’s like 1983 all over again.
