Photography and Biking Adventures

So the other day I did my first ever biking/photo taking excursion! It was very hot out, but the feeling of the wind through your hair, coupled with my intense focus on not falling off the bike while lining up shots, made me forget all about the heat. You would think that biking and photography would not go well together, buuuut it was really quite a good combination. It was a challenge to keep my balance, more than once I found myself too focused on the camera, and not enough on steering straight, but my swerving all over the trail definitely made it more interesting for those around me.

So my first few tries turned out exactly how you would expect, just utterly blurry. I kind of like them none the less.

I can not resist taking at least one good sky-shot ❤

This might be my favorite. Bikes are so photogenic.

I had all but abandoned my bike after the age of 15, as most kids do once they learn to drive, but now I am coming to learn that it is an underrated mode of transportation. It has none of the frustrations of car traffic, but is effortless compared with walking. I’m going to enjoy taking my bike to further destinations in the future and rediscovering the serenity of long bike rides in breezy afternoons.
