Bikes in August 2020 (Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #110)

Hello Readers – I hope everyone is doing well 

I think most of the Priorhouse Blog readers know that this summer has been a rather “busy-busy” season for us. Things are winding down and we shall be posting more regularly once September arrives. Also thinking about a blog challenge to do in 2021…. still brainstorming – but keep you posted 

In the meantime, I wanted to join in with  the lens-artist photo challenge, which has the theme of: Creativity in the Time of Covid Photo Challenge

Here is the Priorhouse take:

Creative way to display the Labatt Blue Bike

>>

Creative color…

 

 

The photo really did not capture the scale that made this bike stand out – but this child’s bike was so small against this large white building. I thought the mood of the disengaged chain matched how some folks feel – stuck and blah.

The circles and lines drew me in.

 

This s COVID….
Is this COVID too? Toilet Paper is no longer in short supply…
Grabbed this bike photo near a beach… is that gum on the ground? All of those black spots? hmmmmmm

 

Someone was creative with the design on this mug….

 

What about you?

Do you have anything creative you have been working on while making it through the pandemic? 

CARE TO JOIN in with the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge and share some photos from your at-home mode?

    1. Hi Dan, thank for the comment and I must admit that I always call it “Labatt”s” with the “s” – and did not fully realize it was Labatt until recently- and that bran reminds me of the north east – and Canada – and when we were home (up north) for a funeral a few years ago – somehow two cases of that beer ended up in the back of our SUV –

      1. I also add the “s” – more recently, it reminds me of hockey games in Pittsburgh. My daughter, my brother and I drinking 24oz cans 🙂

  1. A great set of photos, Yvette. I was especially taken with the one where someone had thoughtfully provided toilet paper for anyone caught short and needing to pop into those bushes 😉

    1. Hi clive – yeah – when i saw that toilet paper on the ground like that – I was wondering “how” it ended up there
      hope your month is going well and be over to see you shortly

      1. I think we both know how and why!

        You’re planning to visit the UK? I hope our quarantine rules don’t stop you! It will be interesting to see your take on what we have that is worthy of your camera 😊

        1. Hi clive – I meant “virtually visit with you” – but we do have the UK on our list for sometime soon – (not sure tho because it ws supposed to be March 2021 – but might delay it_ anyhow, I will let you know when it eventually happens and maybe if it is near your area you can meet us somewhere for a cuppa.

        2. Ah, I get you! I don’t get out much, due to mobility issues, but would love to meet you if the chance arose and if at all possible – Covid permitting!

  2. LOL for Clive – now there’s a man with a sense of humor! Thanks for joining us Yvette – glad to hear you’ve stayed busy this summer and can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

    1. Hi Robbie – that was fun to read about the mood enhancing – and that is actually how I felt when I saw the pink bike on the roof rack – it made me smile to see it so high – that pink against a blue sky with soft clouds

  3. After about half a day, the photos finally all loaded. Phew! I liked your bike theme, especially as bikes are evidently in high demand and difficult to get. One of the now defunct bike shops in Naperville had lots and lots of bike hanging from the ceiling. Gave them lots of extra space.

    I don’t know that I’ve done anything especially creative since Covid started. We moved. 🙂 I did some puzzles, but haven’t really done much else new other than spend time with my parents, get groceries for them, etc., the main reason we moved. Still blogging, taking photos, etc.

    1. Hi Janet – thanks for your comment – and “moving to be near family” is what led us to the east coast again and is sure was worth it – and I hope you all continue to settle well.
      Also, I think as a photography you are able to tap different aspects of your creative side as you scan and see the world on different days – ahhhh – such a nice think to be a photographer, eh?
      and the bikes being in demand – reminds me that maybe some more good can come from eh pandemic – possible improved physical fitness for so many folks who sit too much – at work – on commutes, etc.

  4. The picture of a man on the bicycle looks strange to me all of the sudden. He just looks like has a perfect balance on that bicycle. No motion but yet stay up right on the bicycle. Interesting.

  5. Hi Yvette, I love your bikes, especially the black spots and the circles. Your framing of the black spots made that picture a true stand out. I’m going to guess tar rather than gum, though unless you step in it you don’t really know. Either way, I don’t advocate stepping in it. Maybe someone should cover it all with toilet paper so no one gets their shoes gummy! 🙂 Thanks for the mention of the Lens-Artist article. Soon it will be you! And a new challenge, that’s enticing. 🙂

    1. Hi Marsha – I think you are totally correct about the tar – there is no way there could that much gum with such unified shape and color – because gum is varied – and also just not likely to be there – so thanks for that

      and wishing you a wonderful Sunday – be in touch soon with the replies

  6. Hi there Prior. A perfectly isolated bicycle display. COVID-safe has to be a hidden theme. Should I go for a ride, keeping isolated is a smart take. Riding a horse would be my next safe choice. 💗🍃🌷

      1. And I do love horse and bike riding on the beach. Today we are more limited by regulations. Decades ago, there were no bicycle regulations as there now. Whose faults have brought about these resultant haphazards? Commercial debris dirtying up the shores and man-moving machines crushing people lying in the sand. No we cannot, on the majority of beaches ride horseback or stroll with our dogs. And, bike lanes take a lot of fun out of biking.
