One Beautiful Thing ~ eighteen



You've gotta wonder....
If these bicycles could talk, what stories would they carry underneath their battered old tire rims? Who's feet cranked the pedals and turned the spokes? Who's hands gripped the handlebars and steered them towards their various destinies? Were their owners good to them? Were they the adventurous type? How many miles were explored? To me, they seem to be the velveteen rabbits of the wheeled variety...loved vigorously into their golden years.

  4. All of those questions you asked would be exactly what I would be wondering too. Love the tricycle in the second shot. Took some practice food shots yesterday. They are o.k. but its a lot to figure out. Took your advice and got the 50mm 1.8!!!!! Going to try it out today. My husband says...enough!! But, he is so tech-y that I can tell he is soooo intrigued.
