There is something about a girl on a bicycle that makes for a good photo. New Yorker Jason Goodman proves this point with these two fabulous snaps. The first of singer/songwrter Scout captures the carefree feeling of gliding through the streets on a bicycle and the striking lady in the second photo looks like her and her bicycle could somehow conquer the world!
Jason became aware of the photogenic quality of ladies on bicycles when he took to 2 wheels in New York after an injury that meant could no longer skate. He has since built up quite a portfolio of photos that have been shown all over the world and he will soon be publishing a book.
If this has inspired you to get out there with your camera you could enter Lambeth council's Bicycle Belles photography competition. To promote cycling Lambeth council are asking people send in their photos of girls on bikes, the winner will be announced at an exhibition in September.
