Photography via Bicycle
Text & Photographs By Steve Upperman  © All rights reserved.

Bicycles are a great way to get around quietly and quickly in an urban area. © Steve Upperman It is very easy for me to go to a place, get off my bicycle, and take photos. I don't have to worry about parking a car.
 
Taking photos from a bicycle has opened up new areas for me. I get around the hike and bike trails, the short cut routes not open to cars, bridge sidewalks, and parking deck roofs.
 
I keep a point and shoot camera in a handlebar bag or the back pocket of my bicycle jersey for easy access. I am ready when an opportunity presents itself or when I am out to take specific pictures.
 
After a little practice, I can get my camera out, take a shot, © Steve Upperman and put it away while stopped at a light.
 
On a road with no traffic, I can use my camera with one hand while I keep the other one on the handlebar. I take the picture without looking through the viewfinder, just point and shoot.
 
Bicycles are a great way to meet people on the street and take their picture. Sometimes I ask people to take a picture of me on my bicycle. Usually, whoever I talk with will tell me about something cool to photograph nearby.
 
© Steve Upperman Sometimes I carry a bigger camera, an SLR, in my Camelback. While it is not as spontaneous as a point and shoot, I can still take advantage of traveling by bicycle.
 
 
Best of all, the bicycle shops I stop in like to hang up my photos of people having fun with bicycles.

Huge Bird Tracks In The Snow On Cape Cod!

We were just finishing our hike by Nauset Marsh the other day when I saw these tracks in the snow. What on earth were they? At first I thought they were hiking pole holes, but there were no hiking boot tracks or any other tracks nearby. Hmmm… (Click on blog link to see other photos.) … Continue reading Huge Bird Tracks In The Snow On Cape Cod!

Love This View Of The Cape Cod Bay Flats.

I loved this view of the flats of Cape Cod Bay from First Encounter Beach. It looks like you can walk out for miles. Such pretty colors, don’t you think?
