ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " B "



Round 10 of ABC Wednesday.
Today's letter is " B ".
I like this shot of the BROWN vintage BICYCLE wheel.
It seems like it's seen BETTER times BECAUSE of all
the peeling paint.



Here is my BLACK and white image of the BARBED wire
fence.
I think it is very BUCOLIC, as in rustic.
BE cafeful to not get BRUISED trying to climb BETWEEN
the BARBS.



BLACK and BLUE BUTTONS make an interesting
BOARD.
These are from days gone BY.
You can definitely BUY them.




On a BRISK day last fall we discovered what BUCKY
BEAVER
had done to one of the trees.
It was BROKEN BY his powerful teeth.
BE sure to go and BROWSE the other BLOGS for their
take on the letter B.
I BET you will enjoy them.
Enlarging the pictures will show the detail BETTER.

I think you do this alphabet thing better than anyone, with both your words and pictures. I love the antique bike wheel the best!

Hilary said...

I love that antique bike but even more so, those old buttons call out to me.

Olivier said...

superbe le vieux velo

Wanda said...

I agree with Ginny...you are the best at this meme!

BTW, I need two small black buttons for a skirt I bought at the Thrift Shop. Really cute skirt, but missing two buttons.

Sandra said...

i love the bike :)

Joy said...

A bike besieged by rust makes a great photo. I've never seen a beaver or more to the point a tree felled by one. Love it, its just like they portray on cartoons.

VioletSky said...

The bike is beautiful, but I think one might get a little more than bruises from that barbed wire! It would bit into one if one tried to bound over it.

Lisa said...

I totally heart the old bicycle shot! Fabulous! I'm also pretty partial to black and white shots as well. Great post for the day.

Paula Scott said...

Love the snippet of the bicycle shot! And, I think there are many of us in our group that seem to be very found of buttons (I know I am).

Gigi Ann said...

Oh, I love the picture of the downed tree by Bucky Beaver. What a great picture.

Roger Owen Green said...

bikes and buttons and broken branches - boundless beauty brought briefly brusequely.

Carol said...

Great Bs! The bike wheel is cool...and the downed tree was a good find.

Tim Rice said...

The brown vintage bicycle is artistic. I like it.

Starnitesky said...

A good take on the letter B, I like the brown bicycle.

aka Penelope said...

Those buttons really grabbed my attention. Together they make a nice design resembling a work of art.

chubskulit said...

I enjoyed yours much! Those buttons are beautiful.

Gayle said...

Wonderful vintage bicycle! (Sounds so much nicer than "old.") On another note: It looks like the rain wasn't a friend to our 49ers. I so wanted them to win. Next year!

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Bounteous B's! I love them all, especially your brown bicycle.

Oakland Daily Photo said...

meryl said...

I really like the photo of the old buttons. I wonder where you took that picture?

Sivinden said...

Very creative! - love that old bicycle.

Kansas Bob said...

You always have the most interesting pictures Sue!

Ann said...

say cheese said...

love the second photo!

Dave said...

That's a good selection of 'bees' Sue - Dave

Ann said...

To clarify:

Yes, I 'flew" the Tiger moth"
No, I didn't fly, I mean I was in the plane, but I wasn't allowed to touch the controls.
So I was just a passenger.
Still it was a lovely experience, a tick off my bucket list.

John Roberts said...

I love the old bicycle wheel!

Andy said...

Hello Sue.
Your photos are great.
I don't ride, but the bike is my favorite. I can just picture the joy & laughter it might have brought to so many back in the day.
Lovely post.
Thanks for sharing & visiting.
See you next week! (smile)
