It’s Black And White

Karapiro – Te Awa Bike Path

My bicycle obsession has rekindled an interest (obsession) in photography. It’s now difficult for me to go for a ride without a camera in tow. Obsessive Compulsive? I don’t “think” so, far too much joy involved in both activities, although I do get anxious when I leave home without my camera!

If you want to cut to the chase, capture the emotion, nail the composition without any distraction, it’s hard to go past black and white images. I’ve compiled some of my favourites below, all taken by me, and most are local spots I ride regularly.

Viewed all at once that OCD diagnosis is not looking flash, but on a case-by-case basis I’m kind of proud of them…
