PhotoVelo in the Dallas Observer
Sunday, October 16, at Eno’s Pizza Tavern
If you ever had to compete in a scavenger hunt as a kid, you’ll probably remember it wasn’t very difficult. The clues were easy, the objects in plain sight and it was really only a race of speed, which made the scavenging part so unnecessary. Flash forward to now and the grown-up version of that competition really isn’t child’s play. You need mental strength and a strategy to win adult scavenger hunts, and for PhotoVelo you also need a bike. Bike Friendly Oak Cliff is hosting their third annual bicycle photo scavenger hunt in which individuals and teams of two to four cyclists are given a list of items to photograph around Oak Cliff. All you need are your bike, map, a Sharpie and your camera. Oh, plus you need a place to print or develop your pictures, and we can tell you with certitude that Walgreens needs to take down that one-hour photo sign. So if you live in dark ages, have the darkroom ready to go when the race begins at 12:30 p.m. Sunday at Eno’s Pizza Tavern. You can register for free by emailing info@photopolus.com or showing up in person before noon on Sunday, and stay after the race ends at 4 p.m. for live music and an early dinner at Eno’s. The winner of PhotoVelo gets a free meal at Eno’s (up to $75), and second place snags tickets to the DMA. Hey, if you don’t win you got a free workout, so really everyone’s a winner.

We are teaming up with Dallas Cycle Chic and Bike Friendly Oak Cliff to bring you some joyous and fun filled events the week of April 9 – 17th. We know you have been waiting for us to announce the Dallas Rides Photo Contest Exhibit ever since we got all snowed up last month, and you’ve been chomping at the bit to hear details on the upcoming POLARIDE that we teased you about on Facebook!

Well, here’s everything you ever wanted to know about the way your April will shape up. Dallas is rolling out this new and really nifty Bike Plan for the city, and we are in full support and want to show it by capturing the beautiful bicycle culture that is blossoming here. What better way to capture beauty than through photography? (I know, right?)

Of all the festivities during the week, we want you, our darling photopolus readers to pay special attention to three:

1. “Cyclist Census & Face of Biking in Dallas” April 9 from 12 – 6 p.m. …. We are looking for a few fun photographers to pick one of these spots for a portion of the day to photograph cyclists at each point. You will be provided with a packet full of model releases and details, and you will retain the rights to all of your photos. We just might want to exhibit and post a few of them to brag about our city and the pretty bicyclists in it! Email us if you’re in, and let us know which location you’re interested in.

– Beauty Bar (Henderson near Greenville)
– Transit Bicycle Co (on Blackburn near the West Village)
– McKinney (as in the city of – on Main Street)
– Denton (at the courthouse in the Square)
– Bicycles Plus (in Snider Plaza just off Hillcrest and Lovers)
– Downtown (Pegasus Plaza at Main and Akard)
– Bishop Arts District (in Oak Cliff by the Streetcar Mural)
– Deep Ellum (on Main at Walton between the taco joint and the cafe)

2. “Dallas Rides Photo Exhibit” April 10 from 7 – 10 p.m. upstairs at Eno’s

All of you who have participated the last two kept asking us for more. And we deliver! So don’t resist the temptation to come along. Just email us with your questions, and we’ll get ya lined up.
