A pink one and a blue one

A quick post today. I was hurrying through London the other day on the way to a meeting and suddenly I saw something that shouted – Picture! You’ll know that feeling, I’m sure. You just know it when you see it: when you train your eyes to look for opportunities.  And that’s why you pocket that compact when you leave the house.

And there they were – two bikes, a pink one and a blue one, incongruously intertwined outside a restaurant – Chinese I think, but it doesn’t matter where it was! Out with the camera, switch it on, get down for a lowish POV, grab the shot, check the histogram. Job done, in the bag!  And here it is. Just one of those quirky little images that makes me say – I’m glad I saw that. Enjoy.

About LensScaper

Hi - I'm a UK-based photographer who started out 45+ years ago as a lover of landscapes, inspired by my love of outdoor pursuits: skiing, walking and climbing. Now retired, I seldom leave home without a camera and I find images in unexpected places and from different genres. I work on the premise that Photography is Art and that creativity is dependent on the cultivation of 'A Seeing Eye'. I'm not averse to manipulating images to produce derivatives that may sometimes be far removed from the original.

    Sometimes the spur of the moment shots are the best ones. Well captured Andy. I don’t think I would want to be seen riding either one of those…
