Here here !!!

I have never seen anyone with as much passion, inspiration and juice for photog'ing bikes. That's a lot of work and but even more so, focus and love ... i love bikes and get paid to shoot but Ray does this stuff better than anyone I've seen. That swiss dude with his own site rocked the world but Ray has almost reinvented the wheel with a few shots in that ebay auction - truly, using angles that I've never seen anyone else pop off and it's not rocket science but takes real love to find things that many have simply walked past. In a way I feel sad ... the bike is with high merit, the skill and passion needed to represent it as its shown is 2nd to none, and yet I feel the buy it now is too cheap to warrant such excellence and reward the ingenue that raises the bar. Mark said it right - the sizzle is well in Ray's pictures.

Sorry Ray, but you really love doing this, and it really shows. All credit to you. I'd offer some snippets of advice, but then the auction listings would be cancelled and I'd be booted of the list by the politically correct brigade. C'EST LA VIEW.
