The Collarbone.

September 14, 2011

Yesterday I was introduced to a man named Camille McMillan. I had heard his name before but, honestly, I wasn’t 100% certain on what this man was known for but I was soon schooled. Camille happens to be serious hot-property in world of cycling photography and I should slap myself for not finding this out sooner.

Without knowing I have been looking and admiring his work for some time, in newspapers, magazines and on countless websites and blogs. Now it seems I can put a face to a name and a name to a photograph.

Camille, along with one of Rapha’s original co-founders; Luke Scheybeler has recently set up ‘The Collarbone’ … A ipad/iphone based app featuring Pro-peloton Photo-reportage. I don’t entirely know what it’s going to be, or look like but after googling and finding their Tumblr it’s quite obviously going to be something of exceptional goodness.

Peep the Collarbone tumblr and hold tight for the release of the official Collarbone App coming very soon.

Chris Milliman.

February 19, 2010

The photographer, who specializes in endurance sports and outdoor pursuits, was born and raised in Falmouth, Massachusetts. After completing a duel Master’s in creative writing and history at Dartmouth, Milliman has remained in Hanover, where he lives with his wife and two daughters. Despite his associations with his home region, Milliman rarely points his lens toward local subject. An exception to this rule, a series of stills capturing an afternoon of ice fishing posted on the Freeman Transport site, opened my eyes to Milliman’s work. Traveling the world, Milliman has built an impressive portfolio of commercial and editorial work related to the cycling industry. His clients include Cannondale, Craft, Gary Fisher, Giant, and Ibex. Impressive, in part, because photography is something of a new venture for Milliman.

Timm Koelln.

February 18, 2010

I picked out Timm’s work recently in my acquired Rouleur photo annual 2009 ( thanks Sam ) and I must say he has to be one of my favourite photographers taking pictures of cycle sport right now.

In my opinion he seems to capture the energy and feeling of this sport that not many others can.

The Horton Collection.

December 4, 2009

These are just a few of my favourites but my Goodness! It’s all there… all the posters and graphic art surrounding cycling you ever wanted is right there at the Horton Collection.

Also check this and this one too. Unable to post due to the size but certainly well worth a look if you are into graphics and design.

But Club. Ahem!

Birth of the Alleycat.

November 11, 2009

Really digging these photies found on my daily perusement of the interweb.

From what I gather they were all taken between the 1960 and 1963 at what the French quite fittingly called ‘Courier’ races. However at the source you will find photographic examples of the races from as early as 1890!

The photograph underneath is pure greatness. These guys must be the most stylish newspaper delivery boys I ever saw.

The French in the 20s and 30s and beyond, it seems, had races for just about everything – from cars to bicycles to childrens pedal-cars and scooters, just about every means of transport was represented with its own “championship”. Bicycle couriers of various descriptions, common throughout Paris, were no exception. In the years prior to World War II, and even during the war (and perhaps even after), several events occurred annually which gave the couriers their chance to shine – and shine they did.

British Pathe.

November 10, 2009

I am terribly annoyed.

The big steaming dog poo that is WordPress has this morning prevented me from embedding a multitude of the most amazing and fantastic videos of British cycling history from a website that was previously unknown to me. British Pathe.

I would have loved to have shown you the movie of the 1951 Tour de Britain but no, it won’t let me, I would also have liked to post about a 1956 Dunlop T.V advertisement but alas Worpress says no so unfortunately friends you will all have to go see for yourself by going here.

If you like your movies black and white and you are partial to a spot of nostalgia then it really is a must!

Thanks LS of B’ham cyclist for the linky.

It’s not light yet. There’s a breeze stirring the trees above Furnace Creek and a couple of sleepy crows are cawing halfheartedly about the coming day. They’d be wearing black again, a bad choice in one of the hottest places on earth. Much to my delight the Specialized peloton would be back in pink.

A real nice write up this, well worth a read and the photography is absolutely on point.

Skating in Afghanistan.

February 9, 2009

Check this great New York Times article of skateboarding alive and well in Kabul, Afghanistan.

KABUL, Afghanistan — It looked like an ordinary neighborhood playground: six children tumbling off their skateboards to the tune of laughter. But only hours before, just 20 yards away, the body of a suicide car bomber was sprawled beside a glistening pool of blood
