It’s probable you could track my moods and emotions with these flickr posts. I do have a purpose more than just what I write here when I post them.

Considering the simple nature of this photo, I’ll provide a simple glance into some of the reasoning behind this post:

Transient subject captured by an ephemeral medium. Overexposure combined with the angled front wheel suggests that the cycle is no longer separate from from the world, but rather it threatens to disappear within.




Enough with aesthetics for now. Check out the negative here, which is appropriately titled Feeling Negative…

    I have a more technical take on why I love this one. He used highlights to blend out most detail, leaving some very distinct dark geometrical shapes – the tyres, the chain, the rectangular window sills – to stand out in stark darkness on their own. It’s one of those “I have to remember this!” shots that can really inspire your own photography.
