I started working on this image about two weeks ago. It was one of the first ones I chose to edit from the Republic Of Texas Motorcycle Rally set. I toyed with it for a while and couldn’t really settle on a style that I liked. When I’m first choosing a shot to morph into a final photographic piece I try several different styles until I find a treatment that really speaks to me. This can be a difficult process and can take anywhere from 15 minutes to several weeks, as is the case with this piece. I finally came back to it this morning and decided to publish it on the blog. I finished the minor editing and loaded into WordPress, but kept struggling with a title for the piece.
As I was writing this blurb I was listening to Audioslave’s self-titled album and then it hit me. I Am The Highway
played and I knew what to name this piece. It was taken on June 11, 2010 on Southwest Parkway in South Austin, Texas.
