Hello, I'm Christine and welcome to my shop!

Le Velo Noir (The Black Bicycle) started with a desire to have my own travel photographs decorating my home. At first, I was just capturing images for myself but then I realized that I would like to share my photographs with others.

All art photographs sold here are original. Every photograph I have in my shop means a lot to me. I still remember how and when I came upon a certain object, view or scene. It is also my hope that others will find inspiration, the chance to revisit wonderful memories through them or embark on their own adventures, near and far. All my photos are printed by a professional lab on Fuji Crystal Archive…

It is also my hope that others will find inspiration, the chance to revisit wonderful memories through them or embark on their own adventures, near and far. All my photos are printed by a professional lab on Fuji Crystal Archive paper. I visually inspect each print before sending it off to a loving home.

The hand-made items here are created in my small smoke-free and pet-free Seattle atelier that I also call home.

For me, living is an art and a science. My compulsive crafting thrives with my more logical side. They have a symbiotic relationship. My mother taught me crochet at a young age and I was hooked since then. She also introduced me to the wonderful world of sewing, art, music, foreign languages and literature. A school chum taught me how to knit. I got my flare for engineering from my father, so I am pretty handy with tools. I see myself as a member of the tribe of "I can make that too." Oftentimes, if I want something, either I save for it or I learn how to make it myself!

**Photographic Finishes**

Glossy finish-- the shiny, rich-looking paper most people are traditionally used to. It tends to show fine detail better, but also prone to fingerprints.

Matte finish-- a highly textured print finish that resists fingerprints and scratches. It is much more dull, and does not reflect light, many photographers use matte finishes for wallet prints because they usually get handled more than normal. Some also use it for poster-sized prints to reduce glare.

Lustre finish-- is not as shiny as glossy, but not as flat (dull) as matte finish paper. Lustre paper has a textured finish (some call it "pebbled" that hides fingerprints. Most portraits and wedding photos are typically printed on Lustre finish paper.

Metallic finish-- is a high gloss finish with very saturated colors. It appears as though the image is printed on metal (It almost compares to the back side of aluminum foil). Images tend to really "pop" when they are done on metallic paper. However, note that "highs" (bright areas) have a tendency to be "blown out" and over-highlighted on metallic paper.
