Cycling through Space and Time

A few days ago I decided to take the backroads through the fields. Shooting infrared pictures takes time and patience, that’s like the first thing I learned about it. Discovering the right spot, managing all the gear and setting the camera up … I’d be able to shoot pictures right in the city centre, but sometimes, I prefer silence and space over rush hour mess.

However, fifteen minutes out of town, the world seems to be another one already. Wide fields, windmills and horses for miles and miles. The lonely country roads are quiet, uncrowded and bright enough to take all the infrared pictures, that I want to take. There is so much space and time on roads like these, I almost thought I’m a space traveller. There’s no need for a space suit or an external oxygen supply and the roadbike is my space ship …
