I think parking is a common problem of many people around the world. Tre streets are crowded with vehicles and their number continuosly increases.
The owner of bike in the photo has found the solution to the problem. Yes, I know it is very hard to carry the bike upstairs (above all because that building hasn't the lift) but at least he sure avoids this risk!

Indeed Gae, parking is a common problem of many people in Belgium too. The colours of facade are very nice, the bike is safety.

questo è un buon sistema!
Spero che il piano non sia troppo alto, io già faccio fatica a fare i quattro scalini per uscire dalla cantina!
Very well seen!

Bien vu , il doit y avoir des voleurs de bicyclettes dans le coin .

je l'ai cherché partout ma bicyclette ;-))..
Bien vu le petit coté d'humour iciavec un cadrage centré cela donne le sujet en parfaite evidence.

Very well seen, Gae, and another worthy entry on the topic of Italian traffic. A funny sight of the bike on the beautiful small balcony on this fine residential building. Great shot.
Just for fun, I did a WS for you, suggesting a slightly alternate presentation. Hope you like it.

I think he had already the bad experience in the Ws and now he prefer to carry his bike on his balcon.
The idea to take this picture is good as the colors but I like also very much Norbet's WS for the composition.

Excellente photo, c'est vraiment inédit. J'adore les couleurs et la composition. Seul bémol : les fils électriques dans le milieu de l'image mais, nwoehnl a très bien corrigé cette petite anicroche avec un excellent WS.
Malgré tout, félicitation Gae, vous avez réussi un très beau cliché.

Gae, you should come to Paraguay to park wherever you like! ;)
Me gusta la composicion que hiciste de un tema sencillo pero efectivo.

Very interesting. It's like the bike was lifted up there with a rope and pulley. And can be put back on the street just as easily. I used to keep my bike in my apartment on the fifth floor when I was at school. So I know what it's like taking a bike up and down stairs. The main problem was trying to balance it and open the door without letting the greasy chain touch my pants. Back to the photo. I like that not only is the bike alone but it is the only balcony in the shot. That adds strength to it. Maybe even more could be had by including the entire windows above and below rather than cutting them off. And then maybe correcting for perspective. Or Norbert's suggestion was very nice. Very nicely spotted!

Une photographie qui ne manque pas d'humour et de talent (car il fallait y penser).
Très belles couleurs douces et naturelles.
Heureusement qu'il existe un balcon pour le vélo !
Très bien réalisé Gae.
A photography which does not miss humor and talent (because it was necessary to think of it).
Very beautiful sweet and natural colours.
Fortunately that there is a balcony for the cycle!
Very well realized Gae.

Great Gae - ;-))
I would say like Pamastro - there nust be some kind of robe involved - If you get a shot of the parking - please post ;-))
Thanks for sharing - very well spotted - also an nice example of architectures of Italy.

LOL great parking, good spottet, good light and contrast + color, funny picture.
The composition, I do think some work on the picture should be done to make the picture real great. Shame the windows are crop in the top, I like the work that Norbert Woehnl have done on the workshop, the top crop is hard to do somthing about.

Ben visto, Gae, e le tue note è sempre un piacere leggerle. :)

VERY nice, wthout that bike, the oicture would have been just a recording. I would have considered to place the bicycle more on the bottom third of the scene though, to enhance the composition.
elena (1054) 2004-07-11 10:31
fun and artistic, i like your idea to take this shot, and you were lucky, the combination of colors is beautiful! i think this photo would work better if it weren´t tilted, in that respect i like the workshop, but i like your vesion because you have more windows in your frame.

Bonne composition; si j'essaye de corriger la perspective, cela fera pencher le balcon vers la droite.
Il semble que la stabilité de l'immeuble a été influencé par des mouvements de terrain.
C'est une composition très intéressante.
Buona composizione; se provo a correggere la prospettiva, ciò farà tendere il balcone verso la destra. Sembra che la stabilità della costruzione sia stata influenzata da movimenti di terreno. È una composizione molto interessante

great parking space... would he do it also with his vespa or scooterone? ;-) very good eye catch! nice bike too!

Photo tres originale et marrante,mais du n'aurait pu du centrer le vélo et le clonage les fils s'impose à mon avis;alors tu aurais pu faire un tabac.Le vélo dans le coin supéieur droit pour bien montrer qu'il est en hauteur.Merci.Phil
