Daily Ride – Adeyaka Magazine: Paris by Motorcycle


In one corner we have a motorbike taxi and in the other an Infiniti G37. The challenge is to photograph the G37 during rush hour in Paris from a moving motorbike.

Question: How can I get the job of riding pillion and shooting footage of an Infiniti driving in downtown Paris?

More Zen than I expected

So,  chapters 4 and 5 are pretty much set.

Chapter 4 was pretty straightforward. Tell the story. Relive the story. Wonder at the story.

Turns out Chapter 5 is a heck of a lot more “Zen” than I expected. Turns out, what was really going on in my mind during that ride was not unlike what you experience while doing zazen — only this time on two wheels, going fast. In traffic. In France.

Should be interesting, to see what others have to say about it.

I can’t say I’m un-happy. Gives me something more to think about, as I finish up the week… and start thinking about the weekend.

Woot! Chapter 1 is Done


Chapter 1 (of 8 total) in Zen and the Art of Moto Taxi Survival  is now done.

I’ll be posting a sample later today, so keep an eye out for the download.

At this rate, I expect the book to be ready by mid-February at the latest — ’round about the time when northern folks who live to ride, but can’t because of all that snow, are getting a little antsy.

But for now, let’s just tick the checkbox on that one.

And stop by later today to download your copy of Chapter 1.
