2013 Lone Star Rally

Heading Out

Heading Out

This is one of the largest motorcycle gatherings in the world and it is held in Galveston, Texas.  Does anyone notice there is a social commentary here about the rolls women choose for themselves, or are these roles chosen for them?

  7. awesome photos…in regards to your question…we have a choice, not all women choose the same roles!!!

    • Women do have some choices, and I was trying to demonstrate that through photographs rather than text.

      November 4, 2013 at 2:28 pm

      • and I think you did a good job of demonstrating that.

  10. Great pictures there Ron. Do women have a choice in how they (rep)present themselves? Good question.

  19. Thanks for the recent visit to my Western genre site and the “like” of a post about the new Briscoe Western Art Museum in San Antonio….much appreciated.

    I like the photos….my first impression is that I am seeing a community of like-minded people….and camaraderie can’t be a bad thing, right?
    All the best,
