Bike Blondes

Not all Danish girls are blond. And not all of Copenhagen's girls bike...
But some do. A lot, actually, and they do it with summerly laid-back grace.

Sunny Beauty

Vesterbro Gade Bicyclette Bleue
Chic Shock Downhills
Shorts Majestic
Box Girl


And while we're not shy about our affection for The Cycling Girl here on the blog, here's a bike that accomodates seven of them at once. Fourteen heels. And a dog.

Ahhh, I did a double take on the box girl picture. I thought it was me!! (I secretly dream of seeing myself on Cycle Chic!! ) I recently received a box about that size and took it home in the back of my bike just like that and I swear I have (and wear!) that exact same outfit. Now if only that laptop bag was a messenger bag...!

Can you upload a viedo about your way to photogragh the people in Copenhaghen ?? like a making off video, is it possible???

Sarah, I already told you to wave at us when you're out and about.. :-)
Either the coincidence prooves that Copenhagen's cycle chicks are one of a kind, or it's destiny playing a trick on us...

raquel, Zakka and I will have to discuss whether shedding light to our technique is a good idea or if we want to keep the secret to ourselves ;-P

I think that blonde in the first pic is giving you the evil eye like she doesn't care for you taking her pic. :)

Raquel said...

Velomana, just a few minutes, please!! but dont reveal your secret, like the coca cola formula!

Cyclingred said...

I also would like a little info on your technique. I have specific questions. Like...

Do these people know you are photographing them?

Is this what you do for a living? Spend the entire day stalking cyclists?

I wonder if some of the pics are set up.

"Technique" makes it sound all fancy. At the moment we're two photobloggers - Marie and I - and the whole concept of this photoblog is that we record a cycling life in Copenhagen while we go about our daily lives. We have our cameras with us as we cycle to work, supermarket, cinema, bar, kindergarten, etc. This is what we see.

It's called street photography, cyclingred. Wikipedia has an entry explaining what that means.

Thanks! Good enough for me.

Yes it is possible that you can upload a video about your method to photograph the people in Copenhagen? It’s like a making off video, is it possible.
