Possibility for ouch: high.
trued 'till death
that photographer should have followed up on that door action
death before derailleur
I don't know how some people can look the stereotype so damn well. From the knickers, the top tube pad, the pink V's, lack of brakes, etc - this dude is really hip. Also, possibly toothless.
We don't know what happened in the next few frames.
I think he's intentionally out far enough to miss the door.
I don't know the rest of the story. Just a random pic found using Stumble.
I just thought that it captured that hipster look many are striving for.
I've seen that somewhere before and it turns out that it is an ad for the car with the sliding door as ralphm2k said
Dood is totally motionless. Halfway into his nat fab to show that car what he really thinks about those freaky sliding doors.
let's talk about that sliding door. Now that's a good idea.
That door is pretty cool. If I had a car, I'd wish it had doors like that. It's always struck me as odd that minivans are the only vehicles that really do that.
It's just shot w/ a long lens. The guy could be 5' away from the door and you wouldn't be able to tell from that angle.
i wish more cars had suicide doors.
1. like ralph and pound said, it's a staged ad for a ?peugot? i think, meant to show why their doors are better than all others. EDIT: of course, as i typed it, syntax linked to it. peugot is right, and i'm a genius.
2. with a telephoto lens, space and depth is visually compressed.
he's probably about a foot away from the open front car door, but it looks like he's going to get door'd because of the focal length.
3. this ad assumes that bicyclists are at fault for running into doors because they don't look, rather than the door opener for opening the door without looking or leaving it open while they get stuff out of their passenger seat. which is the only thing i don't love about it.
Look at where his cranks are. He's not moving forward. He's most likely being braced against the front car, as this would be obscured by the angle of view. Or he's very good at trackstands. But he's not moving forward.
Remember the 9/11's
Of course it staged or 'shopped. So serious here all of a sudden. Sheesh
