Mr. Fluevog needs no introduction. The Vancouver style staple and internationally renown shoe designer was closing up shop on Water Street for the night when I nearly blasted past him. I waved quickly and he returned the gesture. I hopped off my bike to ask for a few shots for the blog and he happily accepted.
At this point I should add that I never knew what John Fluevog looked like. Standing before me was just an impeccably dressed photo opportunity about to embark on the only Pedersen Bike I've ever seen in person in my city. He was well dressed, upright on his bike and apparently without the delusion of helmet urgency that North Americans have become infected by.
I tried my best with the camera considering the lighting, but I am confident that I captured some serious awesomeness here.
Me: "And what's your name?"
John: "John Fluevog."
Me: "Im so sorry, I feel so stupid."
John: "Why? Don't feel stupid!"
Me: "But you're John Fluevog! I just didn't know what you looked like."

I went to the library, opened my laptop to do some work and promptly fell asleep. When I woke up, troves of people were exiting the building--it was closing time! Productive times.
I went to get my bike at the (now empty) racks and noticed the only other bike: a clean looking Sekine roadie. As I was unlocking, I saw the owner of the bike approaching and I quickly whipped out the camera for a little VCC style photo shoot.
His name is Jordan.
Reason for being at the library:
"Just lookin' for a good book."
