The photograph above represents a typical use for a bicycle today. Whilst I was photographing on Fleetwood beach I saw a man arrive with his bait digging equipment, lock his cycle to the slipway railings, and walk out onto the foreshore. The light was fading, and as I moved down under the pier the bike became a silhouette against the graduated sky. I moved toward the bike taking a photograph every 10 yards or so. This shot - the closest - is the best, mainly for how it delineates the component parts of the machine and the broken railings. Isn't it interesting how a silhouette encourages us to look more closely than we might with a well-lit photograph!
