On the Road Again

I was thinking of my very few attempts to ride a motorcycle (always as a passenger) when I made this ATC. The couple are from a Harley-Davidson ad in the May 1951 issue of Popular Mechanics (which I nabbed at the Recycling Center ages ago - love those freebies). It was just never something I got into, but I must say you have to envy this couple - they really look like they are enjoying themselves. His hat kinda reminds me of Marlon Brando in The Wild One...but that's about it - Marlon also had the super cool leather jacket, not flannel shirt.
Background is an old postcard of the Sandia Crest in New Mexico. A scrap from a road map and the perfect wording from another set of "retro" postcards. Wonder how she manages to stay so "glam" (and without a helmet) LOL. Enjoy. Jewels

  1. It all goes so well together, Just the right perspective. I recently passed up some old National Geographic magazines. Darn. Look what I could have done. Very nice. Hugs bb
