Van Sweringen Photography: Yehuda approves!

How cool! I went to read the Yehuda Moon comic strip last night, and something on the website looked very familiar.

It took a while for it to hit me, but those are my photos used as examples of the Van Sweringen Flickr group. Thanks, Yehuda! So nice of you to pick my photos. From left to right, they are: Somervillain's Raleigh DL1, the Co-Habitant's Raleigh DL-1, and the Co-Habitant's Pashley.

The Co-Habitant's "track bike". I guess the Pashley does look very much Van Sweringen-ish, especially with those bags attached.

If you have no idea what I am talking about here, then clearly you are not yet addicted to the microcosm of Yehuda Moon and the Kickstand Cyclery. Do yourself a favour and pay them a visit; best comic strip ever!

  4. So cool! I just love Yehuda Moon. Congrats.
    Just framed one strip-- the wonderful exchange between the minivan driving mama & the bakfiets-riding passenger...

  5. Cool. Riding a cyclocross bike for commuting allows me to appreciate both Yehuda AND Joe...

  6. Steve - Yes, but can't you just see yourself dressed in tails upon a majestic upright bike with coat guard and chaincase?...

  7. Awesome! Your bikes are certainly the epitome of Van Sweringenism.

    I got a laugh out of the "track bike." :)

  9. I don't usually participate in Flickr pools (I keep my photos on Photobucket), but I loaded some pics of The Old Gentleman to Flickr and added them to the pool. Thanks for point this out.
