About

Hello, my name is Aixé (eye-SHAY) and I wear a camera on my head.

I’m a bike commuter in Portland, Oregon. I generally ride 6 miles every day, 5 days a week unless the roads are outlandishly icy.

In 2013 I got a Contour Roam2 helmet camera for my birthday and decided to set the camera to automatically snap a still photo every 3 seconds of my ride. Most of the time I face the camera backwards. Every day I wind up with about 500-900 photos and on a good day, maybe a couple of those are worth publishing. I started this blog to share the more successful photos with helmetography connoisseurs like you.

Thanks to the blogs BikePortland and The Community Project for writing about my helmetography pursuits. Bicycle Times Magazine was kind enough to include an article I wrote about my helmetography in their October 2015 issue (PDF) and recently posted my piece about cycling in the rain on their website.

I occasionally publish stories on Medium, many of them cycling related, all of them non-fiction.

If you find a picture of yourself in this blog and prefer not be famous, just drop me a line and I will remove it. I want you to be happy.
