Chi-town Bikes

ISO200 50mm f/5.6 1/100sec

Bikes and Bikes and Bikes oh my!!!

I love seeing so many bikes downtown, I myself try to keep things as eco friendly as possible and love the idea of biking places. When I lived in Virginia I had just a bike for transportation for a few months. Would bike an average of 30 miles a day and absolutely loved it. Actually as I started uploading the pics for this post I decided to jump on mine and bike around for a bit.

I decided what better mini series to shoot then the various bikes that are available in downtown Chi-town. There were plenty to choose from, however I obviously have a certain style that I am drawn to, and like them to have a hint of uniqueness that may lend a bit of their owners story.

Enjoy what Im sure marks the biggest mini series I’ve featured yet.

  4. Lovin the bike series! šŸ™‚

  5. Love the Yellow Cab reflected in the bike’s mirror.

    • Thanks man! I liked that one as well. I walked around for two hours trying to find a bike with a mirror that was reflecting the Sears Tower to capture it in a sense I had never seen before. Turns out thats a more difficult of a task then it sounds haha

    Great set!!! Fabulous compositions. The bikes in these shots have their own personality (or reflect the personality of their owners?). šŸ˜‰

  7. Great detail in these shots. Now I miss my bike šŸ™‚

  8. Great. My favorite is the bike wheel & the manhole cover. It a great composition and I love the symbiosis of the two circles. Thumbs up!!

    • Thanks Shez, one of my favorites as well! I think Im going to get the first one printed tonight in order to use up this empty matted frame I have laying around haha.
