Bicycle from the Spring Lake 2010 Series

Bicycle from the Spring Lake 2010 Series by Shannon Finney

The simplest things can be the most visually satisfying. The thing that made me photograph this was the simple play of shapes - the circles of the tires, the lines of the wooden slats of the boardwalk, the vertical post and the lines of the beach and shoreline. I wanted to minimize the distraction of color and focus just on shapes and shadow. The scene was in full sun which only served to further harden the lines to great effect. I enhanced the grain, exaggerating it to warm the almost clinical brightness of the photo.This is one of my favorite images.   - Shannon Finney
