Life’s like a road that you travel on
When there’s one day here and the next day gone
Sometimes you bend, sometimes you stand
Sometimes you turn your back to the wind
There’s a world outside every darkened door
Where blues won’t haunt you anymore
Where the brave are free and lovers soar
Come ride with me to the distant shore
We won’t hesitate to break down the garden gate
There’s not much time left today
Life is a highway
I want to ride it all night long
If you’re going my way
Well, I want to drive it all night long
– Rascal Flatts
I always had this idea to photograph an edgy couple on a Harley Davidson motorbike.
But, you can’t just stage such a thing. I mean, for one, the dude needs to be able to ride a motorbike, right?
I’ve learnt over the years that faith works in mysterious ways, which was once again proven when I met Marloes and Sebastien in Cape Town. When those two randomly suggested “But what if we take a motorbike and ride it down to Jonkershoek Valley…”
And there we went…
Fun fact: I photographed all the driving images while sitting in the trunk of a moving car.
Important Fact: We were on a very quiet road, driving in a ‘walking pace’
on the way there, Marloes & Sebas were wearing helmets – obviously.
