"Bicycle Portraits"

All over the world, everyday cyclists are extraordinary people!

Quote:
When they started the project, Bicycle Portraits aimed to be a study of South African commuter culture, and they wanted to find out who rides bicycles, why they ride bicycles, if and why they love their bicycles, and of course why so few South Africans choose bicycles as a transport option. But Bicycle Portraits has turned into a portrait of a nation through the bicycles that they own and ride every day - revealing all manner of social, class, historical and cultural nuances never imagined.

Wow, this was a pleasure to dig through.

Really wonderful vignettes.

Nice job... the text is a little hard to read... too light. Otherwise I'd probably get through a lot more of it.

yeah, I've noticed that as I get older, all the text gets smaller and lighter.

CTL+ has become my favorite tool on the computer.

Yes I'm all over CTRL + to make the text larger.

However in this case the designer probably wanted to make the text a little harder to read so you'd buy the book. I don't think there's any way around it unless you copy the text and move it to an editor (Notepad in windows..say). Or viewed source.

A lot of trouble.

Every picture tells a story don't it?

My bad... I was thinking of the photography sense of the word.

I inherited my mother's magnifying glass and I find it more and more useful.

This is hard-core cycling!



No chain, no tires, no brake, no seat but they still go bicycling.

Man I wish those kids lived around here. I would love to help them get their bike running.
