About two weeks ago, "Velouria" of Lovely Bicycle! fame came to town for the New Amsterdam Bike Show. She stayed at my (very) humble abode. Between all of our commitments and appointments, she still managed to photograph me and my bikes. And, oh, yeah, we got a ride in together.
One shot actually is a pretty fair representation of me going to work on a brisk day.
I was thinking of that day's "shoot" as I pedaled to work today. As it was a good bit warmer, I wasn't wearing that jacket. Also, since I didn't have any meetings, I was dressed a little more casually: a light blue cotton skirt, flats, a tank top and a three-quarter-sleeve cardigan. But, yes, I was riding Vera, exactly as you see her in that photo.
You can find that photo, and others, on her Flickr stream. I'm thinking of using at least one or two of them in the banner of this blog.
