Not that there is a general dearth of bicycle images on this blog, but we didn’t have that many in the last weeks either.

Well, don’t fear, my love for bicycles did not come to a sudden end. Here are two of them waiting for their riders and one being in heavy action 🙂

I didn’t really plan the Image of the Day. I just saw the boy, his father was somewhere on the other side of the street, out of sight, and I hesitated, you know, photographing children has become pretty much of a taboo these days, but in the end I liked the image of the forlorn boy too much and I took it.

The Song of the Day is “Low Rider’s Blues” by Blind Willie McTell. Hear it on YouTube.

  1. Perfect – and you are right, these are not the times nor the place where you can get away easily when caught snapping other people’s kids. Not that I would like to live in the U.S. (for many reasons), but the less cramped relationship to street photography could make photographers’ lives much easier.

    • Yeah, right, as long as you don’t take photos of police officers. I know, it’s been decided legal in Washington DC (or was it New York?), but I wouldn’t try it in Mississippi or in Arizona 😀
