Zurich Bicycle #2

Hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend. Two or Three bicycles is better then one bicycle.

Follow the Light

I was in Prague at the end of September of this year and I thought that it would be a great time to go as the city is usually packed with tourists in the summer. Well it wasn’t as quiet as I had hoped. The city (especially the old city) was teeming with people.

I mean really, who can blame them, Prague is an incredible city  and once you get past the beauty of it you can then dive into its history but I’ll leave that for another post.

My husband and I walked across the Charles Bridge and found a small restaurant where we stopped to have lunch. While he was paying the bill I did what I do best, explore with camera in hand. I came across this small street and to my amazement it wasn’t packed with people.

This was such a great scene, the light, the shadows, the beautiful building at the end of the street. I knew then that this would be a good image to do a little digital painting with.

I processed this in Lightroom then brought it into Photoshop and used Topaz Impression to create the final image. Don’t forget you can get 15% off any Topaz Labs product with the code ELPHOTO.

Bicycle Parking in Boston

If you don’t know by now, I always keep my eyes open when travelling for interesting bicycle shots. These are easier to be found in Europe where you’re more likely to find old vintage bikes leaning against ancient buildings and walls. Every so often though I come across an interesting scene such as this one in Boston’s North End.

You’ve got to love the parking job.
