Today I posted literally half a dozen collections of images.
Sorry, but I’m (mostly) caught up now, and I promise I’ll try to be better about keeping my blog updated. I’ve also been working on a second website where clients or others who like my work can purchase prints. You can find that here: http://daniellemcgrewphotography.zenfolio.com/
Jim Lust of Crestline, Ohio, examines a motorcycle owned by K.C. Glad of Temperance, Mich., during a light competition at the Gold Wing Road Riders Association Rally at the Midland County Fairgrounds on Saturday, Aug. 2.
Glad said the bike has about 2,000 lights on it, and he adds a little more each year.
“I get a lot of looks off it,” he said. “Kids love it.”

Judges, some wearing sunglasses, look over a motorcycle owned by Roy Hayward of Auburn during the Gold Wing Road Riders Association Rally at the Midland County Fairgrounds on Saturday, Aug. 2. Dubbed “The Flame,” Hayward said his bike has won the light show competition for seven years straight, and the one prior to it won three times as well.
The lights shine through individually-drilled holes in the motorcycle body, a process Hayward said required about three months.

Jozwiak meeting Popes John Paul II and John XXIII, Director of Communications for the Diocese Erin Carlson contacted me, and once I began freelancing I’ve had the opportunity to photograph many special events as well as write articles for their magazine.
