Spotlighted by Petapixel, photographer Tom Olesnevich’s NYC By Bike project gives viewers a perspective of the city that most of us have never experienced before; he shot the series using a DSLR that he strapped to the bottom of his bicycle. (Yes, this was risky, but his camera managed to survive its one run-in with a semi.) The resulting images — which, as the avid cyclist explains, are his love letter to NYC — capture almost all of the traditional visual landmarks, from Radio City Music Hall and the Brooklyn Bridge to the Apollo Theater and Chinatown, but from a vantage point that will make you look twice.
