Hi all πŸ˜ƒ My entry for the Photographing Public Art Challenge #6, hosted this week by Cee.

These painted bikes, covered in flowers, can be found throughout Arbroath in the summer.

  1. Such lovely colors. But to honest…and this may be grim.. where I live when I see a bike painted — namely in white and with flowers — it’s because a cyclist got killed by a car. These white bikes serve as memorials for that cyclist and are placed in the area where they got killed. Whenever I pass these white bikes on my way to anywhere, my heart sinks and I wonder “how did that happen?”

    1. Oh that is such a shame, but a nice memorial for those that died. Hopefully, the sight of the bike & flowers will remind motorists to slow down & look out for bikes 🀞

  2. Beautiful, Jez. They remind me of the bicycles in a botanical garden display at the Bellagio several years ago. I’ll send you the link to my post a million years ago if I can find it.

Great to hear your thoughts πŸ˜ƒ
