The photo above shows the first bike that attracted me after arriving Gothenburg. I spotted it just as we left the Central Station upon our arrival. That tiny little purse caught my attention and I knew I had to photograph it.
There was many more awesome bikes around Gothenburg. I had to stop quite often to photograph them and I think my friend more than once thought ‘oh, here we go again, stopping beside a bike’. When you’re on vacation with me, you got to be prepared to stop a lot when I got a camera around my neck / in my hand. Yes, I looked like a real (Japanese) tourist with my camera around my neck all the time. Taking my camera out of my purse every time I saw something worth photographing, would be too exhausting. It’s better to place it around your neck and pay attention to it so no one tries to steal it. Well, Gothenburg is not a metropolis like other big cities (London, New York, Paris etc), so I wasn’t so worried.
Well, back to the bikes. I saw a lot of them and photographed all the cool ones. That resulted in a lot of photographs. So many that I think it’s best to split it in two. Don’t want you guys to get a bike-overdose, do I?
Enjoy the bikes of Gothenburg, part one.
