BICYCLES/3 White marble, black bike


This is my third post of the Bicycles series. I took a few months ago, on a chilly and dark late afternoon, as I was walking home. The bike was left against the marble step that holds the huge columns of San Niccolò's Church. The tall lamps cast a nice light on this corner and the B/W version makes it look almost like a neorealism movie scene...

Lay it down, kick stand or lean it somewhere. Nice contrasts on the picture. Word verification is poopp, cute.

New Wave French Cinema came straight to mind. Absolute classic image.

Finally catching up with your blog. Beautiful shots over the past few days.

What did we do at Easter? Eat chocolate, of course.

Sono d'accordo sull'effetto neorealista. Irresistibile il desiderio di rubare quella bella bici!
(PS: bellissima luce)

Just catching up on your blog. Scrolling through the last week is a visual feast. Learning the Italian customs (pasquetta) is divine! What a great way to extend a holiday.

I love this! I would love a bike like this, infact used to have one in London years ago. Is a fast way to get killed in Bath!
