A Beautiful Ride

Couple riding bike. Noyer #2506. Cyanotype Postcard. Private Collection.

A drop dead gorgeous couple on a bike. I like how she has her arms encircling his neck. It made for an intimate and sweet pose.

I hope to find more pictures with these two together. So far no luck.

The Blue Kiss

Blue tinted RPPC. Private Collection.

Cyanotype. A. Noyer romantic postcard. Private Collection.

Sometimes less is more, and in the case of this postcard it is exceedingly true. I find this image incredibly sexy. The way she looks into the distance with her arm resting under the head. And his light kiss on the curve of her jaw.

I find it interesting the picture was shot vertically with the man on top, yet the postcard company decided to publish it horizontally. Well, I choose to post this picture the way it was shot. If Americans could do really sweet and funny postcards, this one proves the French did the sexy with flair. A hundred years later this image still feels timelessly gorgeous and sensual.

Photographer: Alfred Noyer. France.
