PARKING SPACE

I liked the way the bikes were positioned and their various colors.
Bike messengers fly up and down the hills of San Francisco delivering important papers and items to many companies throughout the City.

They are pretty metalic colors. I don't think we have any messengers on bikes here.

I'm sorry I haven't been visiting for a while computer problems!!! I realise I haven't got you as a link can I add you???

Interesting shot. The colors and the way the bikes are next to each other just make the shot. Funny but I am not sure if there are bike messengers here, I have never noticed... Maybe our downtown area is just a little too small... :) :)But tons of people do ride their bikes all over the place..

You'd be in pretty good shape if you rode up the hills in San Francisco on a daily basis!! ;-)

Libby, love to have you add me as a link.
Mandi, I can't seem to get into your blog. The profile page says you aren't allowing it. Sorry I cannot see your work or make any comments.
And yes, the messengers are really in shape. They go so fast and bob and weave up and down the very steep hills. its quite amazing.

I haven't done much bicycling lately, but I can't even imagine what it would be like tackling those San Francisco hills (like the photo, too)!

Eye-catching, love the repeating patterns, and the colors too.

I liked the colors too as soon as I saw them. Like a little marketing ploy right there on the corner.

These bikes have quite a patina! oh the stories they could tell....

Lovely desaturation. Very well done. If one will leave the bike like thet here... I don't know how long it will survive :) I can't imagine riding bike in San Fransisco. The streets there are quite famous.

I'm with Rennie,.,,.I remember when I lived in Redding and would visit San Francisco...I just wanted to make sure my car made it up the hill and back down...safely. I love the look of those bikes...me, I'm looking in to a three wheeler.

It would be nice if people used more bikes to travel everyday around Santiago... It's nice to see many different types of bykes on the streets!
