I found myself taking some photos of red winter coats recently. I figured I'd make a little theme out of them. There's something quite splendid about a red coat moving across the urban landscape on a bicycle. A slow, flirting rush of intense colour which, in the dull winter light, is remarkable to behold, day or night.
These first two photos show how elusive and dreamlike a red coat can be on a Friday night in the Copenhagen winter.
At the very least I figured this post would be a brilliant inspiration for whomever wins the Cycle Chic & Velorbis Climate Conference Gorgeousness Competition. A red coat will complement the red Velorbis Studine bicycle wonderfully.
Here's a red coat at rest at the red light. A graceful Copenhagener acting like a beacon of colour in the traffic.
Who can forget Lars' classic shot from not that long ago?
After deciding upon the theme I looked through my archives and was not a little surprised to find that I had a great number of photographs of timeless red coats on bicycles. A very great number. These four, above, are my personal favourites from the batch.
And below you can see splashes of red coats on bicycles against the black background of the blog.
