Another image from my series of people on bicycles photographed along the seafront in Ostend. I liked her scarf and small practical bicycle, a must have for the commuter with little space at home to store a full size bicycle.
Young lady cycling home with her latest fashion purchases.
It's interesting to see how casual and at home cyclists look in Belgium and Holland. In the UK they wear helmets protective gear and high-vis clothing. They look determined and have the body language of someone involved in a gladiatorial sport.
I photographed a whole series of cyclists. More to follow soon.
The Adolf Buylstraat is one of Ostend's most fashionable shopping streets. It's the place to go to see what's new and to be seen.
I am always fascinated by how the fashion sense varies in different neighbourhoods. There can be a completely different predominant style just a street or two away. There are definitely more fashionista's to be seen in the Adolf Buylstraat than in other streets in Ostend, Belgium.
