The Bicycle Fanatic

    Newer Older

    I met a real bicycle fanatic today. Robert from Sköndal. I knew I had to take a bike portrait when I noticed the wheels. Custom made in Gothenburg by Anders from Veloform. They are very photogenic and I'm not the only one who have asked to take a photo of the wheels. Robban bikes year around. To and from work for the last fifteen years. During the winter he just changes to winter wheels. Guess what he does on his vacations? Correct. This year he will discover Crete by bicycle. Previous trips have gone to Spain and Scotland where Glentress is a favorite. His son is old enough to join him now, so it is possible that the whole family will be biking together soon. My kind of people!

      Thanks Anders.

      You should do that Colleen. Nothing like riding a bike, especially when summer is approaching.

      It's a fun photo technique Poupetta, give it a go.

      I did notice a leg tattoo, but forgot to ask what it was.
