A Beautiful Ride
One from the archives April 2018, Mexico, Yucatan Peninsular.
People on bikes always catch my eye.
Where are they going?
Why so fast?
Why so slow?
I am immediately intrigued. As a mode of transportation that has been around for what seems like forever, there is a sense of romanticism attached to it. I can’t quite put my finger on why I am so drawn to the image.
After an hour or so, exploring my local area here in Mexico I was fixated on catching these bicycle riders as they passed through Paseo Los Olivos.
I took the post production opportunity to experiment with different grayscale and monochrome effects - you know I love a high contrast black and whitey!
Scroll to the bottom of this post to see some hand-painted works which I created following the photography.
