Artistic photos of your Campy bike

Who has a neat photo of their Super Record, C Record bike? I am looking for something with unique lighting or shadows as a basis to do a watercolor painting. Maybe not the entire bike, maybe only part of the bike. Thanks!

I love the way the sun works with the leaves of fall, and the shiny bits and orange and yellow colors of the bike.

Try these out. I don't claim to be a good photogralpher, just OCD on taking pics! There are some Campy a couple of folders. Explore.

Just sold my 1983 Gardin "Special" a few weeks ago...


And I am building another Torpado, just like this one that I let go a year or so past...

Feel free to edit Sacha out - although I happen to think she adds some artistic touch to this pic, myself

This bike never gets old. Every time it's posted I fall in love with it all over again.

All these little holes might take too long to paint, but you can't deny the artsy-fartsyness:

I apologize for the ugly surroundings in these pictures. I need to start taking pictures outside more, and bring a camera along on rides.

Similar to poprad's, it's a 1st generation C Record brake.

Thanks KonAaron Snake, high praise indeed given your crew. It was a Christmas gift from my mom and dad in 1972 when I was 16. The bike was custom made for me at Holdsworth's with the best of everything at the time, so it's pretty special. I ride it often, a fun remembrance of my parents.

I loved it even before that story and love it even more now. That's one of the 3-4 bikes on here I most drool over. You have to keep that as a family heirloom!

This pic turned out unexpectedly well considering I was "just riding along" the beach road in kitty hawk, nc. I saw the cottage and noticed it was vacant so I stopped to snap a quick pic of my bike.
