The combination of Indian dancers and Harleys was quite something. I loved the eclectic atmosphere, and the disparate worlds getting together in harmony.
Wonderful portrait and a super title to go with it...These guys really have a zest for life and you have portrayed it beautifully Betty:)

Milking the bikers, with an Aztec thrown in ;p. Great light. Funny juxtaposition. Amusing shot.

@Dana: I'm a regular dairy. ;)
Such an unexpected combination! The dancer really has an intricate outfit!
A very nice b&w Bettina.
An Aztec man and Harleys ... one of two things is in the wrong place..!

quelle présence ! il vole la vedette aux belles carrosseries ;-)
27 May 2010 6:01am
A cacophony of shapes, forms, textures and cultures .... wooooeeee!
This is definitely not your cell phone...
sharp clarity and detail and black and white tones; a nice silvery quality !
27 May 2010 6:31am
How these two world blend in is a beauty itself. Both rich and yet distinct in their history and character. Lovely shot!
27 May 2010 6:43am
i'd say Elvez and Tina Turner in the background while easy riding.
An Indian in modern times that does not overlap the same horse! Superb shot. Good day.

At a rally of Harley's in Barcelona ... I saw someone similar. It's a really strange atmosphere and great fun ... People are funny and good bikers! The ones I know well clear!
27 May 2010 7:25am

27 May 2010 8:49am
The Indian Sun ! What a super contrast - i would love to see him riding ;) Great B&W too.

A man sun, so radiant in front of these beautiful mechanics. Beautiful contrast.
27 May 2010 10:47am
Oh yes, collide is the right world indeed. Miles away (at first sight) from each other... but in fact Indians have also the right to be Harley Davidson fans ! Great sreet image and great mono.
27 May 2010 10:59am
How cool would be to see this chubby Indian riding one of these bikes , dressed just like that :))
27 May 2010 12:07pm
Bravo pout ton N&B ! Bon après midi
27 May 2010 12:08pm
Wow! What a shot this is! I have to wonder what exactly is going on here as it's such an interesting mesh of elements. Your title is perfect.
27 May 2010 1:03pm
A strange mix, indeed, but there is, also, a harmony running thru the shot like it all belongs together.
27 May 2010 1:31pm
Great contrast ...A beautiful shot ! Well done !
27 May 2010 2:22pm
27 May 2010 2:47pm
an Indian amongst Harleys is a pretty tough competition.
27 May 2010 3:31pm
Amazing collision of worlds, and there you are a time traveler catching the glimpse of the unusual yet obviously possible juxtaposition of modern life as we know it. Bravo, I say! Keep up the grand sharing of your observations, wherever they lead you.

Il ne doit pas passer inaperçu avec un tel panache! Superbe portrait! :)
27 May 2010 6:17pm
The latest dress to drive a motor bike :)
27 May 2010 6:26pm
Looks so out of place, but a fascinating thought of modernity mixing with the traditional.
27 May 2010 7:09pm
5 Stars for the contrasts......................I like this B and W Picture...
27 May 2010 8:19pm
lovely. beautifully incongruous.
27 May 2010 10:12pm
Excellent find and superbly captured. I like the contrast here. Just imagine him (with that outfit) on a Harley... ;)
27 May 2010 11:13pm
Voilà. Ça c'est de la photo de reportage!
This one is really powerful !!
28 May 2010 12:48am
another superb shot from this event, must have been so interesting being there
28 May 2010 1:18am
@JJ: It was! I was primarily focused on getting pictures of the band, but I snuck in as much as I could in the crowd. I felt a little like a party crasher, but everyone was welcoming, so it was cool. :)
