One more today. This bike hasn't been on this forum in a long time:

I wondered when you were gonna wander over to this one!!! :D
Sorry to read about the knee, buddy. Hopefully you'll be on the mend by springtime.

Not artsy, but here's the whole bike.

Another cool detail shot.

Great eye for the original La Gazzetta shot. And the B&W modification is super cool with dramatic contrast enhancement.

One of my relatives served in a bicycle squad during World War II. He told me about 40 years ago, but I don't remember exactly, but they were carrying some ruthless heavy gear on bicycle. A large wooden crate was one of them. Plus, weapon, trigger helmet, backpack etc, etc. This is the picture that came to my mind...

Thanks, ultrarider7. Nice shot from the bridge. What Vintage is your Bianchi, anyway?

Here's my Good Morning shot for today:

This one, like yesterday's shot, is not my bike. It's a shot from the Lake Pepin 3-Speed Tour.

Cool photo! My Bianchi is a 2019. Love the bike, anxious to get back on the road. Getting a little break, I'm going out to participate in the Solvang, CA event on March 14th. I'm renting a bike out there rather than transport mine.

Good Night

Thanks! I got so lucky with the light and shadow contrasts in this photo! But how did I get the shot? I held the camera at about thigh-level, pointed it in the general direction of the rear derailleur and pressed the shutter release button. The result was a matter of luck and little else :)

I wanted a little more color pop and added it in post-production, but the interplay of shadow/sunlight was captured naturally.

Your signature shot, Jeff.
I've seen other examples you've done from that angle - all great, indicate more than just luck.
This one with the shadow is really cool.

Looking forward to Spring and beautiful blooms like these from last year.

A super low end Raleigh rigid mountain bike I just acquired for peanuts last week. Intended to flip but rides so smoothly and effortlessly I'm going to keep for awhile as a winter beater. Not a classic but definitely old enough to be vintage.

I didnít plan this shot, but I really like how it turned out.

^^^^ Very nice! A wide open aperture gives the narrow depth-of-field to isolate the main subject from the background. In this case, intentional or not, DoF was perfect! And hey, the bike is sort of pretty too... :innocent:

Here's something similar, although not quite as precise:

I think it looks great!
