Writing with Light


If you’ve been following my blog and have looked at my travel photography then you know how much I love photographing unique bicycles leaning up against distinctive looking buildings.  Well I came across this bicycle and while not normally what I would be attracted too it was too good to pass up.

    Cool shot Edith. You should do a bicycle photo book…

  3. To me, it looks tragic.

  4. So many questions it leaves!
    I have a friend who is also drawn to bicycles against cool buildings. Funny the things that capture out imagination 🙂

  5. It looks like a kryptonite lock… so i guess they couldn’t remove the whole bike. If you go by again, save the bell for me.

  6. That bike looks like it’s seen better days, but it makes a nice photo subject.

    I’ve seen the ghost bikes and even a penny farthing (post on this due shortly on my blog) but never such an unusual piece of sculpture as this. Nice find, Edith.

  8. Really nice find, Edith. Quite unusual sculpture. Looks great in B&W.

  9. That is a cool shot and I agree, a bicycle photo book is a great idea!

  10. I like it! I too photograph bicycles. I think they are elegant conveyances. What do you think is the key to shooting bicycles?

    • Thank you so much for your comments Giovanni. With the exception of this image the key to shooting bicycles is its surrounding. What they are leaning against or what is in the background plays a big part in the final image. Of course a vintage bicycle only adds to the appeal 🙂

  12. That’d be a real tough one to ride! Great find, Edith, and I love how you presented it as a b&w piece.
