Italy & A Bicycle…Finally

Some of you that have followed me and this blog for awhile know that I love to photograph vintage bicycles with character leaning against walls in classic cities or villages. When I was in Italy a few years ago I came back with lots of those images…you can see one here and here and even here 🙂

You might have been thinking…“why hasn’t she posted any bicycle pictures?” I honestly didn’t see has many this time around. Maybe because we didn’t spend as much time in big cities. Our trip to Italy this summer was mostly to small towns and villages with lots of steep hills and stairways (not very practical to get around by bike).

You can imagine how excited I was to come across this little scene while walking through Cortona.

  3. Once shot a yellow bicycle used to deliver mail; it was leaning much like yours–no bike lock. Trust is marvelous.

  6. Lovely! But this is ITALY…and we have a sign in English by the bike, slightly destroys the sense of place!!

    • Thanks Sue. What can I tell there’s a lot of tourists in Italy so of course they have to have signs in English.
