You Look Better On A Bicycle

Yesterday I got a call from a friend who said (and apparently he had told me before) “Tomorrow’s the day, Marc.” Me: “What do you mean?” “You need to get the first picture of a bare legged woman on a bike. You got a reputation to uphold.”

'Rokjesdag' means ‘Skirts Day’. Or ‘Short Skirts Day’. Most literally, ‘Little Short Skirts Day’. This is a once proclaimed and poetically described day by a Dutch writer. It’s the day when women en masse get rid of their pantyhoses or tights and leave the house with bare legs.

Trying not to sound redundant, but today it really was that day. A fact well forecast that had been buzzing around all week (which wasn’t bad either, as you’ve been reading about.

Oh Yesss

So, I ventured out this afternoon, moving my way from one terrace to the other and aim my lens while comfortably enjoying a couple of beers with my friend Gabemac. Yes, I haven’t gotten up once, you could call it ‘arm chair lazy ass shootin”.

Anyhoo, I took a lot of pictures, but I have to say, not every woman on a bicycle either got the message or found the morning too chilly for comfort. Still, the second best was good enough.
