The BatCycle

Here's a couple if pictures of the gas tank of my Honda Shadow. It was solid black when I got it and decided to add some fun to it. I decided to add the bats from the doors of the 1966 TV show Batmobile. The small bat was a carb cover a friend made for me. Both of these pictures are basically me just playing with close up weird angle shots. Nothing fancy, but I kinda like both of them.


  1. I'm not sure how close you can get with your camera, but I love macro shots of metal and machinery. The angles and coloring are always a challenge and chrome reflecting backgrounds is a constant point to keep in mind. I need to come visit and give shooting your bikes a try.

    P.S. Looks like the left bat wing is starting to take flight. LOL

  2. I'm starting to find the limits of my camera, I can get pretty close now. It took a while to figure it out since I'm a Dailey male and we don't always like to read the directions that come with our equipment ;-P The bats are gone now, but I have chrome badges on the tank now so there are still some interesting shots to be taken. You're welcome to shot them anytime you want.
