    Look Who I Meet... Race Car Driver, Photographer, Book Writer.

    Oops Met not Meet. Lol. "Help me Mr. Wizard"

    We just never know who we are going to meet in our daily walk. I service High End EPSON printers and had a service call in Butler MD yesterday. It's always interesting when I get service calls in homes in the areas where the rich and famous live. I walked into Michael Keyser's home and the first pictures I noticed was Steve McQueen on his walls. Pictures of the La Mans and other race memorabilia. Michael raced LaMans for 11 years in to 70s. He is friends with Steve McQueen's son and Michael has the rights to Steve McQueen's photos. All his photos are scanned from the original negatives. After I finished fixing his printer we needed to do test prints and he printed me three 11X17 posters. Check out Michael's website of his books, movies and pictures. I enjoyed meeting Michael he is as cool as it gets.

    When Michael gave me this picture he said that the other gentleman in the picture is Bud Ekins.

    Steve McQueen making his famous motorcycle jump in The Great Escape (1963) In fact it was actually Bud Ekins that made the famous jump in the film because everyone was afraid McQueen would have gotten hurt. We all know though that he could have landed it successfully.

    That is indeed very cool. Some people rather liked Steve's movies. As well as his off the screen riding and driving.
