Blog #110 Bikes [Series]
In this week’s blog, I will share another series that I’ve been working on. I must admit my admiration for the bicycle as a practical means of transportation, great exercise, and a pretty cool machine that is flat out fun. The bicycle has been around for more than one hundred years and seems to be gaining popularity in cities in Europe and the US. Hong Kong has jumped on the band wagon and has a public ride sharing service recently.
In developing Asian countries, bicycles are used widely due to their relatively inexpensive cost and reliability. The images here are a few of the bike pictures from my series that spans many years and many cities and countries (see below).
Additionally, I want to mention that LensWork online is a great resource for new or experienced photographers. The podcasts are particularly thought-provoking and cover a wide range of topics pertaining to photography and the creative process. They do a Seeing in Sixes project that results in a published book. It’s really difficult to pick only six images from a series but a terrific practice in editing forcefully.
I made a submission (Due: 15 June 2018) including some from this series.
Always remember to keep the rubber side down.
The light is always right.
