The Pink Bike


Pink Bike

Did I ever tell you that I love repeating patterns?  Well, I love repeating patterns! I might have shot the bicycle stand all by itself. I am sure glad that the owner of the pink cruiser bike decided to park where they did. I like how the wheels of the bike both repeat the circles from the stand but are offset in a non-symmetrical way.

This is definitely one of those times when I wish I’d shot more. I have 2 frames of this scene which are nearly identical. At f/4.0 the foreground is out of focus. I would liked to have seen what it would have looked like with more depth of field. Also, a shot from a lower angle might have proved interesting. Looking down the row of hoops to the crank and chain of the bike sounds like a view I’d like to see. Maybe shooting from more to the right with more of the building and less of the street may have been the way to go. We will never know now, because I only took two shots.

When you find something interesting, work the angles and make sure you have covered all of the possibilities.

In the best light…
