Easy Rider

Previous / Next

This is why I always carry a camera. It`s shot through the window of my car, and when I spotted him, I didn`t have the time to focus, adjust the shutterspeed or anything. As you probably can imagine, things went pretty fast here. This is one mean machine.
I love to watch people who dare to be different. There are many places not far from here where I can find loads of "originals". I live in a small city where most people work outside, in different places. There are not that many big factory's left, and that's probably why the city of Moss feels so empty. People live here, sleep here, but go other places when they have time off. Råde on the other hand is farm country. It`s only a twenty minutes drive from here, and Råde is fields, tractors, diesel and religious people. When I was a kid, I hated it. They were our enemies, and all the kids from Råde were stupid farmers. We were just stupid. Now I really enjoy going there because it`s one of the few spots where you find simple, uncomplicated people who doesn`t pretend to be anyone else. People who in their late eighties still ride their mopeds just for fun instead of watching Oprah.

Alfred, it is always a pleasure to read your stories: they stir feelings that I have many times but do not come to the surface so eloquently. The person in the photo is cool. Considering that you didn't have time for anything else than "point&shoot" it came out remarkably clear.
