This man was really proud of his functional bicycle artwork that he created. It has all sorts of things on it that he has collected, such as; a telephone, soft toys, feathers, cd's, wooden carvings, plastic flowers, coloured lights and so much more....

Hello Wanda, the guy looks really proud and I am sure he wanted to pose for you. Funny art gallery on wheels. Well seen. I once saw a bike in jersey but it is even more weird.

un personnage sympathique fier d'être immortalisé par "la pellicule" et de son vélo sûrement aussi. Un superbe portrait.

You've come across a a delightful scene with this lovely decorated bicycle and its great festive accessories. Not really the kind of machine to win the Tour de France, but the bike is fascinating in itself, and its owner is joyful enough to bring a smile on everyone's face. Very well spotted, and beautifully taken and presented.

Original decoration, interesting attitude od the man, well captured, good sharpness to see all these details on the bike.

An incredible bicycle, which makes m think of some trucks and buses in India and Pakistan. I see there is still room for himself, but what if he has to pick up a packet from the post-office? I am sure some museum of "weird art" would love this as a donation. You and André both make watching TE more enjoyable with your superb photos of daily life in South Africa and elsewhere. You capture a lot of simple but amazing people and environments that many others would overlook.

this is a wonderful portrait, I like very much the pride the gentleman takes in his bike and the sincerity and friendliness with which he poses. He must have had great fun decorating it and supplying it with items that might prove useful on his trips. This photo makes me think of my bike as plain and uninteresting:) You have included a meaningful background, captured lovely details, light and colours. The best thing is his smile. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Une jolie pièce supplémentaire à ajouter à ta collection de photos avec vélos. On peut dire qu'il n'a pas lésiné sur les accessoires pour customiser sa monture!

A collector, this bike, and the owner is very proud of his work, smiling at the photographer. I suppose he got one picture he can show to everybody/

A willing subject with a winning smile and unique bike. Another perfect capture which is unusual and visually appealing at once. Perhaps all those artefacts do not make the bike too heavy for riding :)?
Thanks for sharing and have a nice evening.

Real cool shot!! a multi purpose bike, the talented friendly owner and what a contrast of colour there. What ever it is you are almost compelled to watch, I love the attention to detail, the light, tone and the peaceful surroundings without distraction. A perfect moment captured of simply engaging scene nicely thought through. Lovely snap, Congrats

A new Wanda's shot; oh with a bike! What a surprise ;-)
Nice 'real' portrait: it is working.
I like how the guy is proud of his stuff.
