a couple of recent photos of the Hetchins.
might not be artsy, but at least playing around with perspective and composition a bit.

SJX426 I prefer the 2nd one, because you don't see the full shot, always more exciting when something is kept back, it makes me want to see more of the bike

I've been playing around recently taking pics of street art figures glancing at my bike, and here's two more.

And this makes me eyes hurt just trying to see where my bar tape went...

My 85 Nashiki Olympic 12. Bought her new in September, 1985. The old girl still looks pretty good.

I like these because they are not just shots of a bike.....The first shot even though the bike is centered in the image the light striking the bike as well as the colors is nice.
Second shot, light, composition (bike headed into shot along with the hint of red on the bars works....again very nice composition and lighting.
