Hi John, thanks for this comment and sorry that i didn’t spot it sooner. Yes i was refering to the number of women featured in the images and i’m glad to know your rationale. Personally i feel there’s a fine line between representation and exploitation, with the camera angle having a lot to do with it, especially where women on bicycles in the summer are concerned. But “eye of the beholder” and i really am glad that we have a fully-fledged SB entry in Chicago.
OK thanks. Again, I didn't take that particular shot, but I used it because it's one of the most dramatic photos of a Lakefront Trail crash that I've seen. I'm guessing that if you go back and look at photos of female cyclists that I and other Streetsblog reporters have shot, you won't find anything problematic.
Thanks to John Greenfield for the follow up article on Streetsblog.
Nice!! A+. Nice follow-up by Mr. Greenfield. Glad to hear nobody on the path was injured and that the driver was cited (DWI, negligent driving, operating a motor vehicle without insurance). It would really suck to be hit by a drunk, insurance-less driver while riding or walking on the path.
I drove past there yesterday to the cyclocross race at Montrose. There's still a car wheel there.
