Guerilla art

I’m working on a new guerrilla art project right now titled Street Shorts (street photography meets micro-fiction) and am reminded of one of my favorite exhibits of the dozen or so I’ve mounted out there in the wild. It was titled Ennui: Selections from the White Dress Series* and was on an unpaved part of…

Glorified sidewalk?

The New York Times called the Atlanta Beltline (Belty, to us pals) a glorified sidewalk (in what was actually a very positive article). All I can say every time I ride it in all kinds of weather is glory, glory, hallelujah! And that’s just the start of Atlanta’s praises I’m getting ready to sing in…

A Sunday in December at 5 PM

I woke up today feeling particularly good and relaxed. That’s because my commute home from work (after leading a really enjoyable bike tour with a lovely couple from my beloved New York City) looked like this, filled with people enjoying themselves.

You pass people (2)

You pass people while Traveling at the Speed of Bike. And then they ask you to take a photo, and you meet, and you chat, and you leave each other better because of it. (If interested, see my book, Traveling at the Speed of Bike, on Amazon in all global markets. You may also enjoy…

For no good reason

That time I spent endless hours Traveling at the Speed of Bike all over the Atlanta Beltline (including with Angel*), and found and photographed the alphabet for no good reason . . . *If you click on that post, please note I ditched that blog’s URL — after millions of visitors and more than a…
