Monday Monochrome Motorcycle with a side of Mime

It was a very very busy weekend around here in Central Ohio.  The first Saturday of every month is the Gallery Hop in downtown Columbus (the Short North art district) and this one for April was “hopping”.

But that’s a good thing.  The weather was ideal; 70 and partly sunny which meant everyone came out and filled up restaurants and patios to enjoy the respite from having been inside and bundled up for months… too many months if you ask me!

It was a chance for me to play catch up with some of the street performers who have become friends, to meet new people, to try out a new form of street photography (more about that at a later date) and to support a fellow photography friend and painter who is now a curator at a new art gallery.  All in all it was a long day but a very good one.

The motorcycle here is a Ducati Panagale V4.  That means nothing to me but maybe it may resonate with you.  I’ve been on the back of a Harley before but this?  How do you get up there, hang on and then get off???

And the mime here is a very nice guy.  Not one of the creepy ones.  Mimes and clowns – two things I am not a fan of normally but not this one.  I like him.  He’s always there in the same spot for the gallery hops.

Does your neck of the woods have a recurring event like this and by the way, how do you feel about motorcycles and mimes? 🙂

    “Gallery Hop “: here in Fredericksburg we have the “First Friday Art Walk” to/between the different galleries. That seems to be something like your “Gallery Hop”.
    As to the motor cycle: “Ducati Panagale V4” means nothing to me either. 😉

    Great mime, and motorcycle.

    I love Ducati motorcycles. They have the coolest engineering with the engines as an structural part of the frame, instead of simply bolting the engine into the frame . The Ducati Panagale V4 has a new innovative component called the “Front Frame” that makes the engine into a load-bearing component. It’s super cool if you are into motorcycles.

  4. The juxtaposition of mimes and motorbikes is a bit curious. Yeah, I wouldn’t be up for hitching a ride on the back of a Ducati. Cheers

    Are her feet on a stand or just hanging? Not sure about mimes but if he has your seal of approval, that’s good enough for me.
