This old bike was parked outside an antique shop in Palouse. There was an array of stuff outside that looked like fun junk rather than antiques!
We were actually visiting Mimi's bakery close by which is a heavenly bakery/coffee shop. We were the only ones in the café and almost the only people walking the streets of this small town in Palouse country.

gran bel colpo d'occhio, la tua attenzione è stata premiata da una splendida foto.
Bello il soggetto e belli i colori, hai scelto un ottimo pov per effettuare lo scatto.

Fine artistic street scene. I like the rusty textures and the red background. Well seen, have a good day.

Hello Ann Jackman,
The perfect subject for the observant photographer. Makes an excellent study in colour and texture. Fine realisation.

I like the matter in this shot: the rusty bike and the colored wall.
I am sure it can be repaired!

What might be someone's treasured possession might be another person's junk but this looks to me like an interesting (and probably not too difficult) restoration project!
A very well seen and very well taken photograph. You were lucky to have such a wonderful and richly coloured background against which the blue and white parts of this rusty bicycle rests and yet stands out superbly.
A fine simple and uncluttered composition with glorious colours and exquisite details and sharpness.

Je pense qu'il a dépassé le stade de la réparation. Il est plutôt du pour la casse. Une très belle recherche de textures et de couleurs passées. À quand le grand nettoyage.

Great photo of this old bicycle. Well seen too! It's a very colourful bike in front of a colourful wall as well.

Why do I think of `Les Bicyclettes de Belsize`, the musical short film of 1968, in which the young man crashed his Raleigh bike into the billboard depicting a fashion model he fell in love with?!!
Quite a meaningful poster indeed!
You display a strong image of poetry.

i really enjoy this one.
it would be even better if the bike was replaced with an old car! haha
lots of textures in this one but the star of the show is actually the red wall :)
that wall is amazing.
a shot thats right up my alley.

unlike John I`m not too sure about this as a restoration project,not only missing a wheel, without brakes and an uncomfortable seat,it might pass on this one...
The multi colours and textures all contribute to a lovely scene where the bike is nicely separated from the BG.
Warm regards Les.

Bonsoir Ann, jolie capture, c'est bien observé et très joliment réalisé. Superbes couleurs.

c'est une très belle image de ce vieux vélo rouillé.Ici la couleur bleue et des teintes de rouille donnent un bon cachet à cette image.Ile ne faut pas grand-chose pour réaliser une bonne image,il suffit de regarder et de traduire sa vision par une image simple.J'aime beaucoup.J'apprécie beaucoup votre job photographique.

I remember that I must have somewhere a picture of just a wheel that was lying just next to the canal in Copenhagen. Just the kind of wheel that is necessary here to repair this bike.
Excellent observation and a great colourful almost abstract composition of high quality.

The colours and strong shapes provided you with the framework for an excellent shot here Ann. I like the graphic punchiness and straightforwardness very much.
Hope all is well with you and yours

You got a very good shot here! I like the details of the old rusty bike, the red colour and the textures of the walls. Very well seen and framed!
