I want to ride my Bycicle

 

 

K and I went for one last stroll through the city a warm evening before the beginning of his exam period. I took my camera with me, like always. I don’t really know why, but I was photographing every old bike, Vespa scooter or floral anything we passed along our walk. I shot these photos with free handed, not really looking at what was in focus or minding the composition. I was in a mood to do random things that night. Some of these really came out nicely, I think. As I was editing them I kinda felt like faking an old film-effect. Again very random as I usually prefer my images sharp, with bright colors and  clear light. Looking at these photos in a post, I really miss my own bike. My dad was going to replace the tires, but as my bike is over 25 years old, it’s really hard to find tires that have the right size. My bike has been standing upside down in our garden for the past two and a bit years and it’s overgrown by weeds and covered in spider webs. Maybe one day.

    These photos are lovely, the vintage effect on them is just perfect. I like switching up how I edit photos sometimes too xo

    Ik word ook vaak aangetrokken tot fietsen of vespa's zeker zo in het buitenland en dan met een romantisch mandje eraan.. Ik heb ooit een post I want to ride my bike genoemd en daar kwam major spam of af.. just a little warning 😉

    Lovely photos, such nice editing!

    Shame about your old bike, hopefully you or your Dad come across the perfect tires at a vintage sale or something! 🙂

    These are beautiful shots! I recently got a beautiful pink bike made by Papillionaire that I love taking photos of! I'm sure someday soon you'll get a new bike or repair your old one!

    Xo, Hannah
