Saturday Ride: Finding a Hidden Gem – Bamboo Forest

Saturday Ride: Finding a Hidden Gem – Bamboo Forest

After spending last Saturday night doing the Crotona Midnight Run on the giant behemoth that is the GS, the DRZ felt positively toy-like. Everything on my little black Suzuki just felt so… easy. From the pull on the levers, to leaning it up off it’s side stand, to feeling it’s weight balanced underneath me at a traffic light. Just so much more, me.

Bamboo forest and my DRZ

As I was riding along through sandy lanes on the North Shore, I spotted a bamboo patch that I’d never noticed before. Bamboo isn’t exactly indigenous to Long Island, so I pulled over to snap a quick photo with my phone. When I looked at the result in Hipstamatic, I couldn’t help but feel that the random film treatment made it look like summer in the photo. Wishful thinking.

Hidden Gems

I love tripping over hidden gems in my own back yard. Have you ever found something in your local travels and said “Wow, I can’t believe I never noticed that before?”

This Hipstamatic photo used the Chunky lens from the Mac & Milk Fashion FreePak with the Blanko Noir film from the Blanko Noir Hipstapak.
