Bike Porn

Hopefully someone out there can explain why a bike on its side makes for a more interesting picture than an upright bike.  If you peruse Rivendell’s site you’ll notice many of their bikes are lying in the dirt.  And they are great photographs!  Some bikes are being pushed, not ridden, and again great photographs.  You may also notice that most of the really good bike photos out there are taken of the drive-side.  I understand that one.  It’s always interesting to see the inner-workings of things.  For me, I am drawn to photographs where the focus is not on the bike.  Sure there’s a bike in the shot somewhere, but your eye is drawn to where the bike has taken its rider.  Yeah, I get that one too.  It’s not about bikes.  It’s about where they take us.
