Me In My Place, Ari Graynor and a vintage Schwinn

Submitted by on December 13, 2011 – 5:34 pmNo Comment

This last year I’ve becoming increasingly obsessed with photography, in fact I recently created a Tumblr page to post some of my photographs that (mostly) don’t include a bicycle.  You can see some of those examples here.   As a result I’ve been following several photography sites including the popular Me In My Place, a site dedicated to photos of women in their own homes, using natural lighting.  His tag line is “Real girls in their own place. Not too crazy and just a pinch of naughty”. Some of his work is exceptional, some not so much.

As part of an ongoing series, Ari Graynor shot by MeInMyPlace for Esquire Magazine.

While most of the Me In My Place site presents ordinary women (not professional models) he occasionally partners with Esquire magazine to feature a popular movie starlet or model, in her place that is. I’m always enthusiastic when I see bicycles incorporated in popular media; naturally I was delighted to see what resembles a vintage Schwinn (Raleigh?) used as a prop in this photo series of Ari Graynor for Esquire.

According to Ari the bike shown actually came with the apartment. What a cool idea: a bicycle as an apartment rental perk.  If I owned any rental properties I think I’d include a bike, especially if the property was near one of the many bike trails in town.

Speaking of Tumblr sites and movie star types, be sure to visit Rides a Bike for vintage photos of famous peeps on bicycles in popular media.

Chris started riding a bike again when he noticed the Preston Ridge Trail being constructed across the street from his house. Since then he co-founded Biking in Dallas, has gone through countless Craigslist bike projects (some better than others) and can be found pedaling around town on a Electra Ticino with a camera in tow.
