Photographer Tom Olesnevich's idea was simple, yet it's been highly effective. NYC By Bike is the title of his project, one where he strapped a DSLR to the bottom of his bike to capture various parts of the city. From this angle, one sees the wheels of his bike and the cars around him, in addition to places like Times Square and the Williamsburg Bridge in a whole new way. In his words:
"I’m a sports photographer by trade. My close personal friends also know that I’m an avid cyclist. But when I tell people that I live in NYC and ride my bike here, I get all sorts of curious glances. I have photos of myself riding all over the country and in Europe, but none of NYC. So this spring I set out to show what riding in NYC looks and feels like, to me."
