Back in Atlanta. Super Bowl Sunday at Taco Mac in Midtown.
Back from Gunnison, CO. Such a surreal experience. I was in this little town about two years ago. I always knew i'd come back, just never thought it would be for this reason. It is comforting to see the kind of family Adam had out West. He was a guy who influenced so many people in the most positive of ways.

Adam Lockard

Late Saturday evening I found out what has come to be the hardest thing I've ever had to deal with. I lost my lifelong friend Adam Lockard in a tragic fire at his home in Colorado. Adam Lockard Gazzette This guy was the warmest soul I've ever had the pleasure of knowing.

We grew up doing everything together. This guy is the reason I ride and the reason I take pictures. The first photo I ever learned to develop was of him and my friends riding. I will always think of him anytime a swing my leg over a bike and touch rubber to dirt. He died in Colorado living the dream, a life he loved in the mountains. I miss you buddy! Shred in Peace!

A few photos of my main man i've taken over the years:
