Let's see some bikes!
« on: June 25, 2015, 11:50:31 AM »
I've noticed that bikes seem to leave their image on the film for many of us. So why not collect some here? :)

I seem to like my bikes unmanned, and in the aftermath of unrest. How are yours?

Oh now you've gone and done it. Parked bikes are one of my favorite themes :) I have a Facebook album specifically for parked bikes, which is where I'm going to hotlink these pictures from, so let me know if you can't see them. Facebook album here (trigger warning: some digital content :D )

This is almost too easy. I can't even begin to count the number of bike photos I've taken, let alone find them all. I'll just put up a few from last summer in Europe to make it easy on myself.























OK, that's more than a few. I'll stop now.
Any man who can see what he wants to get on film will usually find some way to get it;
and a man who thinks his equipment is going to see for him is not going to get much of anything.

I remember that photo, Chad! Was it on Arista Premium or Arista Ultra?

edit: nevermind, I saw on Flickr that it's Arista Premium (Tri-X rebrand) and HC110H. I use the same combination and I have no idea why yours looks so contrasty and blown-out (in a very good way!). Do you do a lot of post-processing, or is that pretty much how it comes out of the tank?

Thanks, Satish. I don't do a lot of post-processing on most of my film scans, but I just fired up LR and it looks like I bumped the exposure +0.40, dropped the highlights -20, and bumped clarity +20. Here it is with LR adjustments reset to see how it came out of the Pakon.

Hmm, must be how the camera exposes it, how the lens captures it, or it's the magic of the photographer himself! :D At any rate, I really like the look  8)

Thanks! And the lenstagger info on that Flickr photo is wrong (looks like I accidentally exported it with Elan IIe/Portra 160 info). It was shot on my Nikon F5.  :)

Wales has a bicycle museum.  This one shot in 2006 on an Ikonta with Neopan 400 (RIP).



For a more recent proud cyclist and her bike, look no further than Cardiff a few weeks ago.  Ektar at 400.

Francois, that is the most inspired double exposure I have ever seen. Like a bicycle dream !

Here are three from a 1988 tour of Scotland, with an Olympus XA and Agfachrome slide film.

1. The track from the Altnaharrie Inn, across Loch Broom from Ullapool
2. Glencoe
3. The end of the tour on Rannoch Moor - had to cut short the tour after a mishap on the rocky track.

loving the variety we're seeing! even more abstract ones like the bike signs and edthened's trace of a bike(!)

and I was just waiting to see some of Sandehas Cardiff bikers.
glad to see some mountain shots too, KevinAllan, those are stunners :)


seeing some kid bikes in the thread makes me eager to show an old one I've got
