Pan Head Billy

This photo is one of those photos that just happens.  I was shooting around Artists Palette in Death Valley and there was this guy leaning against his motorcycle admiring the light on the mountain.  I took a shot and the original photo was of his back.  Well, I decided to go up and talk to this guy.  He was a fascinating guy and had been on the road for 17 years.  His nick name was “Pan Head Billy”.  As the light started to diminish and turn golden I asked if he would mind posing.  So he took this pose and I took the shot.  The detail on this image shows all his belongings he carries with him, his ruggedness and confidence.  I put the image in my gallery and one day was messing with it on some of the apps I had and ended up with this.  Hope you enjoy it.
