Ernest, my cycling partner.  by leananiemand

Ernest, my cycling partner.

I had to sneak this picture of Ernest, my cycling partner who I’ve known for most of my life. He may have some looks, but he is a man of many talents – an excellent chef and bike mechanic on this “saga of an expedition”.
some looks??/ Leana.. he is smokin' hot... Glad you have someone along that you can count on.. great portrait of your friend..

October 22nd, 2012  
AGREED!!! he is VERY handsome! great portrait work on your part!
October 22nd, 2012  
Looks like a very capable fellow, given where you've been and likely to go, he'd be handy to have along.
October 22nd, 2012  
Wonderful portrait!
October 22nd, 2012  
He looks so much better without that Gabby Hayes sagebrush beard.
October 22nd, 2012  
Great to see the man himself - he looks capable and a really good travelling companion!
October 22nd, 2012  
Congratulations on making the top 20 with Fields of Millet. Well done you!
October 22nd, 2012  
@cromwell LOL I HATE that beard!! He seems to like it from time to time!!
October 22nd, 2012  
Nice to meet Ernest. This really is a great portrait and sounds like you have an ideal companion on this journey. Oh, and yes, he is dishy.
October 22nd, 2012  
@ubobohobo Thanks Margaret, I could not believe it!!! I´m stunned into silence!
October 22nd, 2012  
I'd say you did a great job in capturing his rugged good looks! Great portrait!
October 22nd, 2012

Great portrait and a great travelling companion by the sounds of it! Have to agree with the other women here- he 'has some looks' alright!
October 22nd, 2012  
Great portrait. Glad you have someone to rely on.
October 22nd, 2012  
Looks like a reliable travel partner. I'll leave the description of his looks to the ladies!!!
October 22nd, 2012  
A perfect travel companion I'd say--- handy, talented and easy on the eyes ;)

You did a great job with his portrait-- the composition and focus really work to capture him well.
October 22nd, 2012  
Nice eye candy ;-)... oh, and great portrait shot too!
October 22nd, 2012

October 22nd, 2012  
won't it just be so fun for him to see this on the PP????
October 22nd, 2012  
Great portrait
October 22nd, 2012  
@vickisfotos Unfortunately I did not do a great job of capturing him, but will try again sometime, he is a rather unwilling subject LOL.
October 22nd, 2012  
I totally agree with @cheribug ... yeah...
October 22nd, 2012  
@cromwell Don't be a hater! :) (just kidding)
October 22nd, 2012  
Sounds like a beautiful person inside and out Leana. Aren't we lucky when we find people like this! Lovely portrait of him!
October 22nd, 2012  
Great portrait. Nicely done.
October 22nd, 2012  
Hummmm!!!! What a nice man, great shot Leana.
October 22nd, 2012  
Ummm... "may have some looks?" And you didn't do a good job of capturing him? I guess sometimes we don't see it in our lifelong friends because we love them for all their other qualities, but, girl... if he looks any better than this, then you will have dozens of women from 365 clamoring to join you on your journey... in spite of the hardships along the way! And, looks aside, it sounds like Enest is a great friend and travelling companion... :)
October 22nd, 2012  
@marilyn LOL thanks Marilyn!!
October 22nd, 2012  
Well you sneeked in a great shot. Sounds like he's just the kind of guy you need around with you. So where are you heading next?? What are your plans after leaving Mexico?
October 22nd, 2012  
Great-looking guy and just the man to have on your side and at your side for a trip like this. Cheers to Ernest!
