Photographer's Note

In old cowboy films we've all seen "posses," local townsmen brought together by a sherif to ride in search of outlaws. They were seen to gallop in and gallop out of old Western towns, frequently serving as a law unto themselves. They were known to arrest, abuse and on occasions to even hang outlaws on the spot... without due process. In recent years packs of Harley Davidson Motorcycle riders, "Rolling Thunder," have also been described as posses.

As I walked around in the center of one of the most beautiful towns on the Amalfi Coast, Positano, a posse rode into town, sans horses, sans Harleys... and they disappeared as fast as they appeared. Lean, mean pedaling machines! I had my camera and an extraordinarily sharp 210 mm Nikkor lens, and immediately shot a few photos.

Regards to all my TE friends.
