Riding Into History

John Adams is a faithful daily reader whose photographic work has been published in many magazines around the world (2009 EasyRiders and V-Twin magazines motorcycle artist of the year).

His passion, chasing with his camera all places where machine and art collide. One event John never misses is the Annual Riding Into History Concours held each year in May in historic Saint Augustine, Florida. I got the privilege to see the pictures he shot during the show 11th edition, and now you can too. Below is just a teaser, then jump to his Gallery to see in big format many more historic beauties.

    HEY GUYS , John Adams shoots of vintage bikes is the convergence of two fine arts. The way he captures the lines and curves of a fine crafted machine reveals it’s true beauty. An accomplished and talented photographer will draw you into seeing things that you may have missed with the naked eye. The old bikes are so open and exposed , they arent covered up with fairings and bags
    so it was important that the mechanics of the machine looked good as good as the tin surfaces.
    A photograph is not supposed to make the machine better than it is , but to maximize it’s true
    beauty of form. glide-on-a-slide. Thanks John. Have a great day brothers.

    Nice pictures of these Vintage motorcycles. Each motorcycle has so much charactor, each one is unique. That picture of the Indian, is that the Enfield, or AJS motor? Very nice picture. Haven’t seen that many Indians with a british motor. Thank you John Adams, your very talented.
