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.
The penultimate month in my Flickr 366 project and I’m still going strong. Yes I’m a couple of days late posting here due to a hectic weekend, but nonetheless another 30 photos added to the project, and as ever a selection of my favourites below.

Simply stunning “pin art” installations from still life photographer Philip Karlberg.
Using the oversimplified pointillist technique Philip has worked some real visual genius to achieve some incredibly recognisable characters in his work.
Around 1200 coloured pegs and some very strategic lighting has given the rather impressive results.
If you didn’t get them all, they were (from the top) Karl Lagerfeld, Jackie O, Lady Gaga, Johnny Depp, John Belushi, Steve McQueen.
Check out Philip’s other work here.
Slightly late with the latest updates for my Flickr 366 project this month, moving house and lack of internet at the new place have impeded me somewhat. Anyway, better late than never so here go – some favourites from June.
