The B-side collection


On top of having a full time job as a graphic designer, ridding a bike to and from work, keeping a blog, surfing, and now a brief stint as a guest poster on BikeSnobNYC. I also happen to have a gig where I take pictures of bikes . I do it in exchange for bike parts and access to bike tools and maintenance facilities. So lately I've been taking allot of pictures of bikes. Most of them never to be seen by anyone but me. Every once and a while though, one comes out real nice. Most of these real nice ones of course I will never use. Either because they don't show the whole bike, only part is in focus, or the composition is just plain weird and out there. They are the B role and because I am sick of trying, and sometimes failing miserably, at writing. I bring you this post! My favorite bike pics.

Good stuff! Looks like we're on the same page. I also recently visited some street justice on a hummer-driving douche who had illegally parked near my house. The sign used to say "BUY A HYBRID - I NEED YOUR GAS." Fuckin douche. Anyway, big ups from Upstate NY.
