Copenhagen Musical Bikes

A girl and her cello, originally uploaded by Rune Johnsson.

A splendid photo by fellow Copenhagener Rune. The photo is copyrighted.
I was organising my folders containing cycle chic photos and I saw a little theme. Copenhageners transport their musical instruments by bike. I thought of Rune's photo above and then found some more.

Posted before, but appropriate again.

I'd seen this chap below a few times around town on his converted Long John. Took me ages to figure out what he rigged it for. Then I saw him one day carrying a massive bass, leaning against the front rails. In the photo on the right, I'm guessing that it's a horn instrument or a violin being transported through the sleetstorm.

The aforementioned cello and musician in a different season.

That first pic is gorgeous. I don't know how you frame these shots so well when they go by so quickly.

thanks. that first shot is a guest photo from another copenhagen photographer. panning shots are tricky.

speaking for myself, i get lucky once or twice out of ten attempts.
