August 24: Something out of place.
The day before my accident, we visited the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the surrounding churches and theaters. This rusty yellow bike was locked up nonchalantly on the sidewalk, as if its owner parked it there every day while he worked at a souvenir stand or scooped gelato or something. The odd juxtaposition of the old bike and the seriously old building struck me as funny (and colorful).

  1. Kind of a “Back to the Future”, but REALLY far back! The colors are lovely! 🙂

  2. Great photo. It does seem out of place…

  3. Fun photo. Looks like the bike and post are feeling empathetic with the tower and so leaning too. :)) l

  4. Nice photo !

  5. Glad you are doing better! I love the yellow of the bike, quite striking!

  6. This is a really cool photo!

  7. What a superb capture!

    This is really lovely.

    I need to scroll back and read about your accident! I hope everything is okay now!

    Thanks for this super link.

    A+

  8. What a contrast! They both look like they have been around for awhile.

  9. Super photo! I like the this post!

  10. What a brilliant take on the prompt. Shows great observation!

  11. Hi!

    Love your ‘S’ post! Have a great weekend & look forward to *seeing* you again next time,

    XOXO LOLA:)

  12. this looks so fun

  13. Neat angle! I like the simplicity of the yellow bike against the complexity of the architecture.

  14. Love this picture! We spent 5 years in Italy (my husband is in the Air Force) and one of the last trips we took before moving back to the states was to Pisa. Only the day we were there at the leaning tower, it was cloudy and rainy. LOVE the blue sky and the yellow bike and the OLD cathedral together in one picture.

  15. That bike looks like it’s been around awhile, but not nearly as long as the Leaning Tower has been. But you’re right, it’s bright color and (relatively) modern styling is definitely out of place there.

  16. great photo Thanks for sharing

  17. I love the contrast. Definitely an interesting shot! Only through the eyes of a photographer (amateur or professional) can see the beauty in something odd or out of place. =D

  18. A unique POV of the Leaning Tower… it’s a fun leaning retro-looking bike, too.
