Racing bike, Wine Street, central Bristol; 16 Sept 2016.

Across the road there was the dark shadow of a large building and, in front of that, this bike was propped up against two roadside bollards.

A sudden shaft of sunlight hit the pale pavement behind the bike, throwing it almost into silhouette but – importantly – still allowing the camera to capture the dirty yellows of its frame.

There is another bike image here.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    Love it! You’re so good at these types of shot. The yellow frame is the icing on the photographic cake 🙂

    I like the lines and curves on the bike, the shadows, and of course the splash of yellow finishes it off nicely for me. ☺


  3. paula graham says: thing to do for a sense of freedom..for me anyhow, I would hate to be without my daily cycle ride…dangerous as it is on these lanes around here with drivers who have not a second to spare to give you a chance to get to a passing place.

      Yes, those narrow Devon lanes are hairy going at the best of times, I know just what you mean about speeding locals, its the same on the Levels – you are brave venturing out on a bike! 🙂


This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
