Aerial Bikes I
12" X 23.5 image
Looking at a bike from the 12th floor of a hotel eliminates the round spoked wheels. Now the handle bars become the most recognizable element and, in this case, the basket on one of the bikes. I chose a shot I took when a person was walking past the bikes. By introducing the figure I believe the fact you are looking from above becomes clear. Now when you look back at the two bicycles I hope you begin to understand what they are. A glint of light from the wheels attracts the eye and makes you linger a bit longer until all of a sudden you realize “bikes!”
Stay tuned for more aerial views in the future.
