bikes and photography
Bike blogs are very visual. It’s only natural that a genre dedicated to discussing life on two wheels would gravitate towards a gratuitous use of images capturing that thrill of getting out there and enjoying life in motion.
One reoccurring type of ‘image in motion’ is the arm’s length portrait; often referred to as the Panda shot. As much as I love some of the creative ways people have artfully styled and photographed their bikes in front of stunning landscapes, I think my favorite type of bike photography at the moment is this fleeting and incomplete look at a rider and their bicycle that comes from a quick snap from an outstretched hand. Here are some of my favorite Pandas from Flickr:
I’m feeling inspired by all of these images to collect a Panda series of my own. What’s your favorite kind of photography and why do you love it so much? S.
