Marc van Woudenberg’s Photo Contest Entries

  1. Soaking Cycling – Taken on a rainy summer day, from my window, looking down on the bicycle lane. Many Amsterdammers will use an umbrella when it’s not too windy. This particular one was the most striking.
  2. Slices Of Saturday – This was taken on a very cold, crispy Saturday afternoon, and she was just smashing. And probably a bit late, because she was flying. Not that it looked like she was breaking a sweat.
  3. Serendipity – I took this shot on a foggy week day, after morning rush hour. I turned right off the busy bike lane, towards one of the canals. Then I realized I only had my phone camera. It didn’t matter. I waited for the sounds of a rattling chain or crooked fenders, juggled about by the ride on the cobble stones. It obviously worked.
  4. Cyclisme Naturellement – I took this today, a very cold and wet day. This woman had just missed the green light on the bike lane crossing, and knowing she was alone she moved to the left to use the curb for balance…which is best when wearing a mini skirt. She didn’t change her posture for 45 seconds until the next green light.

    I love them! Great pictures!

  • Thom says:

    Alan, I think you should establish a rule that anyone in Amsterdam or Copenhagen is barred from entering this contest. It’s just not fair to the rest of us! :)

    That first photo always reminds me of the “Umbrella Corporation” from Resident Evil. :-)

  • Alan says:


    I agree! :-)

  • Josef says:

    I believe this is what Alan had in mind when opening this to overseas entries — to make you want cities that are as bike friendly as Amsterdam (the cobble stone is something else, though, as much as I like the looks of those streets). You can have them in the US too if you really want it ;-)

    Great pictures Marc. I like your web site and visit often. Makes me want to come and visit, but today here it is 58 degrees F at noon and sunny. Why am I in my cubicle…I should be out riding.
