Bike Rides and Cafés

Collaboration week number three with Nicole Sander takes us on a ride. Enjoy…

shane/nicole collab 3

Although you wouldn’t be able to tell, the sun had blazed the streets with a fiery temper that morning. The bicycle you see in the foreground, started off its day with a journey beginning far away from this busy little café. It had been driven along long empty dirt roads and through the rambling green countryside to a small blue house on the edge of a lake. There, a girl lived who owned a red bicycle. Joining them on their ride they continued on, drinking in the scenery and stopping at one point to lay in a warm grassy field as small yellow butterflies fluttered by. At the end of the day the rain begins and they enter a small café for a bite. Here the bicycle waits pleasantly for his owner, a little happier and shinier than usual.




  1. Beautiful photo and the writing really adds to the whole imagining of the scene. Seems like something out of a french film, perhaps Audrey Tautou is in the cafe?

  2. wow – what a cool shot of the bike – I like the way you give a bit of history too – but just looking at the bike sitting there – is just cool. good shot. 🙂

  3. I love how you describe the photo. I feel like I am right there with them, about to hop on my bike and drink in the day (of course, with the bike carrier and two toddlers attached to the back)!

    1. Ha! I use the Chariot trailer for my two boys… how hip and sporty 🙂

      Yes, I agree that Nicole described the scene very well.

      Thanks so much for stopping by the cafe today 😉

      1. You don’t need a garden Shane! I would love to be able to capture scenes and people like you do! Gosh I don’t know why, but I missed a stack of your posts! Love your work!
