Do You Remember Your First Bicycle?

My first mode of transportation was an old balloon tire Schwinn bicycle. Throughout the years the bicycle styles have changed, but one thing has not. It has always been a way to transport one’s self to another place.

Remember the freedom and independence of riding off alone on your first bicycle. It was a feeling I will never forget. The one particular moment was when my Dad released the back of my bicycle seat, and I felt real freedom. This unforgettable memory is my inspiration for the abstract photograph I call


“The Bicyclist.”
