sleek, hi-fi motorama- but why the gun? We often associate ‘power and cool’ with popular high tech movies, one day we will evolve…

While the western world goes hype on motorbike aesthetics and design which can be fun by the way, the non-west motors with  utilitarian intentions. Needless to say both seem to be missing one key item. My bomber caps! Bombers and motorbikes are the quintessence of adventure. Only because I love my caps and think anyone can wear them. To be clear they are a luxury, mind you one that will last a long time, and they are also obviously not safe for highway driving.

Got the denim blues

Dog meat is a healthy choice to eat

Dog meat has medicinal benefits according to the Chinese-

Now I love to try new things because I do consider myself full of adventure, but dog meat is stretching it. I eat meat and I am an animal lover, can’t do dog. Definitely a cultural difference.  Motoring across town with them? – why how else would you do that?

egg motorbike Viet Nam

My bombers have reached as far as the UK, but I wonder if Viet Nam would wear a bomber ?- a plus against urban noise!


World’s rarest motorbike

 Very focussed, all together , on a mission are they going to make it??? They would move faster with one of my bombers of course…


Viet Nam carriage

Both of these images are just darn impressive.


A balancing act

Think these forms above are being carried by a bicycle or a motorbike? Do you know what they are? (conical fishing baskets)


Women’s Micro-Financing world

Business as usual. These ladies are juggling many tasks between work with micro- financing initiatives, family and building a prosperous community. Motorbikes make their life a little more convenient and free. As the saying goes “My cap (hat) goes off to them. “

In India having fun after attending the baths. Motorbikes tend to have that attitude.

Aviator escape


…flying is a psycho-temporary escape from earthly realities …


that demands we stretch from our habitual skins



to strategize inwardly for the right time




 and get the right gear on




 but without a single minded direction and excitement of what is to come



    we won’t feel as good about what we accomplished…

aviator escape





A girl lays back and takes flight into her inner world. I love this image of her wearing my S’AMUSE leather bomber caps because she is sleeping on top of the sky, an impossible moment in reality but the feeling is real. My daughter and I layed back on the snow today during our hike and the clouds were moving at great speed. We also saw a peculiar vertical rainbow as clouds and sun layered space in strange ways. Clouds aren’t welcoming weather usually however their soft billowy nature is a comforting feeling. This photo constructed by photographer/artist Hanna Agar alludes to this idea of taking flight into our imaginations, into our personal comfort zones, to experience SPACE of some kind intimately.

When was the last time you laid back and experienced sky and reflection?

Perhaps the plane below can take you out, up, towards and into space with its unusual propeller …It is a FAIRCHILD 71 at the Port Townsend  Aero Museum. Airplanes both terrify and thrill me…



Bomber caps are part of the sport of flying, I have some in a variety of colors. They are on sale now for $125. Visit my store at www.s-amuse.bigcartel.com . To taking flight in 2014- cheers!
