The Propped Bikes

Last summer I got into propping my bike various places and taking pictures.  I seemed to like the pics so I will probably start fresh this season. I am going to post them here and ask you to tell me which one you like best.  Most of the pictures bring back happy memories for me.

This was on that wonderful bike path in Rhode Island.

This was taken after my first (and only) duathlon!!
And there's my old car, sigh.

This is also from that bike path in Rhode Island. I went
on it with my college friend.

This was taken on the first long ride I took by myself.  It
 was a loop through several towns and in different counties.

I loved this route. I was on a ride with my biking
friend who is game for anything.  I can't wait
to go on this route this summer.

This was at one of our meeting spots for group rides last summer.
On the Burlington Bike Path where I really got into these pics.
Last fall I had lots of sunset rides.

Also Burlington Bike Path.

Another sunset ride on the bike path. This was has been
my computer screen pic for a year or so.

Burlington bike path.

The bridge on the Burlington Bike Path that crosses the Winooski
River. This one was taken after a fun race (running)

This is on one of my favorite rides especially in the fall.

Do you take pictures over and over of any one thing that just floats your boat?  At least when I am taking pictures of my bike I'm not breaking my camera.

Sunset one.keep up the pics.

Tough call but I like the bridge pic.
I take pics over and over again of my dog. I think that's a common pet owner thing though (or pet grandma).

Wow, I love these. I think the one I love the best is the first one by the water. Very nice!

May I steal your idea?

Unknown said...

so fun!! what a great idea too!
oh the places you will go! :)

Jill said...

Of course, I like the pic on the water :).

Ewa said...

I like them all because every one of them tells a story of where you've been.

I remember some of those pictures! Isn't it neat how looking at certain pictures can bring back such warm and happy memories? Keep taking those pics! BTW, I really like your header pic - not sure if I had told you yet! :-)

These are so great. I love stuff that brings back memories.

One of my favorite bike pictures to take is my (well, my and my bike's) shadow while I'm riding. I don't know why I love it so much, but I do.

I think the bike propped against that big hay cart(?) thing is really cool, and I love the pictures propped on the Burlington bike path along the water. Beautiful!

Great idea! I like the color contrast in the last one.

Hmmm. I like this. Might have to do some W Coast props myself.

Char said...

This is like a pictorial essay of all the rides you've been on. So picturesque

Fran said...

That bike sure has seen some beautiful places.

You know I do: you've seen enough Bella pictures since you start reading my blog :)

And yes I watch Private Practice, one of my favorite shows. We stopped halfway last season here and I think it will be back soon on TV.
