Rants on Cycling and on Life:
Photos of people and bicycles that pass in front of my camera
You are my Methadone, my stand in since I can't be there. Thank you. I have an addiction to that city like a junkie to the horse. I love and hate it. Since I'm in recovery now, the best I can hope for is Methadone. God bless you, you give me just enough without the withdrawls. Your picutres make my veins pulse with anticipation, when's the next fix?... and always you're there....
I am not the pusher manI am addicted to this blog thing right along side of youit was said by a fellow blogger who has since retired that I would shrivel up into a Gollum-like state if I were to give up the blogglad you enjoy itsometimes I think it is pretty alright myself
I dig that photo. Did you plan that juxtaposition ? Two forms of transportation for specific purposes of hauling stuff, one Earth/people friendly the other not so. Coolio.
craigI like to try and get some balance in the photoit is fun to have a guy with blue rims passing a car that is the same color blueor a loaded down messenger passing a UPS truckbut these things can not be scriptedthis shot was taken as I rode into work with the camera around my neckas I approached the alley that goes to the back of my office building I saw Cargo Mikewith the camera already around my neck I dropped my geared monkey into a harder gear as Cargo Mike moves at a shockingly fast pace with that trailer in towI caught mike and tried to get far enough to the right to get the full bike in the framestill pedalingI am also looking to see I do not rear end a parked car or a cab pulling over to grab a fareMike sees me I snap another shotwe greet I pull a little forward and snap a thirdfor the third shot mike is no hands moving at speed with that massive trailer in towthe second of the three shots came outthat is what I gotthe process is one of rapid preparationthe bicycle approaches fast whether I am on bike or on footthere is a matter of chanceand predictability
