Got up this morning to shoot with Tom Curran and his 57 Panhead down in LBC at Syndicate Barber Shop. Jon Hall has been working on mural just inside the alley and while we were doing the shoot Jon strolled on by. I've been a long time admirer of his work so it was cool to finally meet him. The mural attracted so many people as were shooting that a customer from Syndicate pulled his 55 Chevy in the alley as well. I got all this unexpected fill in props for one photoshoot. Pretty cool way to start off a Sunday.
Check out the new Kustom Magazine now. I have 3 features in there this issue. Scotty Stopnik Sr of Cycle Zombies and his 49 Panhead, Powerplant Motorcycles Norton and Stuart Koch Fullerton Fabrication built 35 Ford.

Here's to the Monday Blues. Stuart Roch and his Fullerton Fabrication built 35 Ford I shot down in Irvine a few months back. Got a few more photoshoots lined up but just need to find the time to get it done with a busy family schedule.
