A day spent out on the bike, shooting and exploring, is simply the best feeling out there. Easily speeding around town to get the shots.
Exploring the new normal by bike is an amazing way to witness the city. Places that are usually too busy, almost look abandoned now. It’s quite a privilege to see the architecture stripped back, as if straight from the designer’s drafts.
Riding a bicycle makes it so easy to discover places that always seemed out of reach. Using a bike to commute around town has been so effortless and so much fun.
Trying to find the best moments of golden hour in the places less discovered.
