'Bicycle' by Me

Bicycle, originally uploaded by PhotoPuddle.

Do you want to know what my latest fascination is? Maybe not but I'm going to tell you anyway. It's baskets, wicker ones in particular. I have always wanted one of those baskets you put on the stairs so you can fill it up with things that need to go upstairs. Well I finally got myself one last week and I love it! It's actually really useful and fantastic in my quest for trying to keep the house uncluttered.

I am also loving bicycles with baskets on the front. They are just so pretty. I went to Cambridge a few weeks ago and I was amazed by just how many bikes there were around the city. And so many of them had these lovely baskets on. I want one now so I can ride around town with pretty things sitting in front of me.

I took this sneaky picture while in Cambridge. There were loads of bikes resting against the wall and I couldn't leave without at least one photo. And I thought making it black and white would give it a nostalgic feel and finish the image off perfectly.


  1. The black and white is perfect, it took straight to a mental image of a rural village in Ireland. Guess some photos don't have a nationality attached:) Jen.

  2. Love this image! Nice to see some of your own personal work.

    And you've given me a great idea... I keep walking to and from the train, perhaps I should invest in a bike with a little basket? CUTE! Ok, off to Ebay I go...

  3. I have a bike like that!! but not with a basket, but with a crate. I really love my bike, I can carry so much with me! I want to purchase a basket too, because the crate sometimes makes lots of noise when it's not loaded.

  4. Add a baguette, cheese and wine to that basket and we're in business!

  5. Oh, I agree about wicker baskets. Much better than metal ones. Lucky you to go to Cambridge! And you're right, the black and white is very nostalgic. Great image! Have a wonderful weekend. – g
