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 photograph and I love your description. Sounds like my ideal kind of day without the fiery blaze of the sun, of course.

  2. 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?

  3. 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. 🙂

  4. 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!
