It was the summer of 2010. I was heading off the Airborne School in Ft. Benning, GA. On my way I stopped in Memphis, TN. Unknown to me, it was biker week in downtown Memphis. Thousands of riders come out each year. In one of those rare circumstances, I just so happened to walk right into the middle of it. There was everything you could imagine, bikers of all kinds, from your leisurely day job riders to people who lived on the road. There were hippies, tourists, metal heads, a ton of police, and passer bys like myself. Most importantly there was musicians, so many I couldn't even tell you. It was a week of serious blues music and I was loving it. I'm not sure if its because of the music or the fact that I wasn't expecting what I had found. It was, and still is, one of the most memorable places I've ever visited. To see all my pictures check out my Memphis page here.
I call this entry the "lost files because even though I had posted my pictures up fairly quickly, I had some videos which never saw the light of day....until now that is. I stumbled upon them on my hard drive and kicked myself for not sharing them because they are at the least entertaining and really give you a feel for the experience more than the pictures alone. I don't remember much from that night, but I do know I had a great time, and these videos seem to piece the whole thing together a bit.
