The Purple Bike
Portsmouth, NH - USA
During my senior year of college I would occasionally grab my camera, and make the trip over to Portsmouth, NH for a walk in its beautiful little downtown area and its surrounding neighborhoods. Many times I had no agenda, and no idea what I would end up finding to shoot, but mostly was doing some reconnaissance to scope out the area and find new places to go and shoot. On this particular morning, I decided to venture a bit farther from the mains trip than usual, and as I turned down one of the side streets, I found this awesome purple house. Naturally, I crossed the street to get a better look, and when I got closer I saw this awesome purple bike! So I did what any photographer would, I creepily set up with my back pressed up against the wall of the adjacent house, thankful that the shakes were drawn, and took a few pictures of this strangers house before making a quick getaway. Anyway, I am glad I did, as this shot has always been one of my personal favorites!
