For those who have been following me on Instagram, you would have noticed that I have taken up cycling (yeap, slow to the game at nearing 40 years of age) and luck be it that I managed to find myself part of a very vibrant cycling community focusing on Bromptons and Birdys.
And with good luck, I managed to make friends with a Brompton collector who’s limelight shy (we will refer to him as Mr. J) and he kindly loaned me one of his Bromptons for a while and so in return, I thought of marrying two of my interests – photography and cycling.
A wise person once said: Find 3 hobbies: one that earns you money, one that keeps you in shape, and one that keeps you creative.
And I guess I have been blessed enough to find number 4 – one that allows me to meet new good friends.
This of course won’t be a 1000 words review but simply a photo-essay, showing the photos of the shoot and simply why the output of Nikon cameras keep me hooked, despite them taking close to 4 years to play ‘catch-up’ with Canon and Sony with the Z9. I won’t be reviewing bicycles as I frankly know too little about bicycles to say much either.
For once, this set of photographs were actually all photographed in JPEG and only very slightly post-processed instead of my typical work-from-raw where possible workflow.
The light was good, I had great equipment and a beautiful model to photograph with zero pressures. Totally enjoyment.
and that’s it.
Do keep safe and see you around for my next review. 🙂

Keith, that is one rare collectible color. Beautiful photos you took of it.
Thank you 🙂 it’s metallic purple and I’m sure without the kind owner – not something I’ll get the opportunity to experience
Hi Keith, beautiful photographs shared here. What is your take on the Nikon mirrorless system?
Hi Qin, thank you. Nikon Z is my workhorse system actually, and I’ve the 24-70, 35, 85 amongst others for it. It does have to go back to personal preferences and needs because while the Z6/7 II are lacking in AF compared to their counterparts from Sony and Canon, it is the output and image quality that I like most.
