Clouds Outside of Hollister


DSC_0796 - Copy

I had just driven through Pacheco Pass  on Saturday when I stopped for a red light outside of Hollister. Rolled down the window and took two shots of the view to my left. The color of the sky and the “power” of the clouds were a special touch until the semi behind me changed my focus.

For those who don’t know Hollister, it is a California town made famous by  visiting motorcyclists in 1947. In short, the bikers partied. The  event became the basis for a short story and later the 1953  Marlon Brando film, “The Wild Ones,” about outlaw bikers invading a town much like Hollister (the fictional movie town was Wrightsville).  In real life there is an annual celebration involving Hollister and motorcyclists. Although I owned a motorcycle for a time, I never made it to Hollister, save for driving by it in my car.
