As cycling becomes ever popular and embraces new styles and trends something that many cyclists are doing is using is using helmet-mounted cameras to record footage of their time in the saddle. Whether that’s on the road to highlight good or bad behaviour from motorists (and fellow cyclists!) or simply showing off tricks and stunts off-road.
Either way what you get is the view from on top of their helmet.
In a unique twist in capturing images whilst riding your bike, sports photographer Tom Olesnevich caught my attention with a very particular viewpoint. Yes they are shot from a bike still, but the slightly unusual angle from which they are taken is essentially the bike‘s point of view.
The project is rather aptly named NYC By Bike.
All the images were taken on a Nikon D40 and bravely mounted to the bicycle with a GorillaPod. An infra-red remote triggers the capture.
The complete set of images from the project is on his site here.
