Your composition is very appealing to me, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
That is a really intriguing composition. I like it a lot.
Ginnie Hart: Most kind of you, Michael. Thank you.
i like your composition here, Ginnie. looks, though, that the bike on the right wants to hitch a ride to the bike on the left smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ayush. You know the Dutch and how they park their bikes! smile
good contrast between the straight angles on the tiles to the lovely curves in the bikes Ginnie....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Peter. It's all about curves and angles these days, you know. smile

For the ones that need a translation.....'hitch your wagon to somebody/something' (also hitch your wagon to a star)
'to try to become successful by becoming involved with someone or something that is already successful or has a good chance of becoming successful'.
Great play of lines here and I love both halves shown of those 'Oma-fietsen'. (Grandma-bikes)
Wonderful picture for bike Friday.
Ginnie Hart: Some of the time-worn phrases pop into my mind when I see images, Astrid, and this was one of them. It's fun, isn't it!
Une très chouette composition, j'aime beaucoup.
Bonne journée
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Pascale.
What a great title, Ginnie! And I really like the split bike image!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. Sometimes titles come to you in a flash, don't they! I love when that happens. smile

Oh, I was yesterday there , but I do not recognise this place, but recognise the typical Dutch bike. not Mondraanish.
Ginnie Hart: You surely saw some of the same things we did, Philine, as I posted at my In Soul blog yesterday: http://ginniehart.blogspot.nl/2017/08/a-day-in-amersfoort-nl.html
Very good Ginnie. Proper bikes not like those fancy things Mr rolfe hurtles about on
Ginnie Hart: HA! But we won't say that to him, of course. smile
Bravo pour cette composition très originale
Bonne journée
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Claudine.

This is good stuff, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Lisl. it was a pleasing juxtaposition to me.

So very different to the bikes in the UK but such designs are being seen now. Do you have a bike?
Ginnie Hart: These are basic "granny bikes," as Astrid calls them, Alan. Yes, I have a bike but haven't ridden it in the last 6 years! The Dutch traffic drives me crazy, so I opt for walking! Astrid, however, has a "normal"(25 gears, I think???) bike as well as a race bike. SHE'S the pro. smile

I like those continental bikes Ginnie, they look so sensible and comfortable.
Ginnie Hart: Sensible and comfortable..."sense and sensibility." Indeed so, Chad.

I love the sleek lines of the bicycles against the stark white wall.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Steven. It really caugt my eye.
Looking at the shape of those they must be Dutch bikes. This composition fell into your lap didn't it.
Ginnie Hart: Granny bikes, as Astrid calls them, Brian. And yes, it fell right into my lap. smile
I remember that saying. Good illustration of it.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Mary. Don't you love how images remind us of songs/phrases!
Someone forgot to hide these bikes in the attic?!

No gold star for him. wink
Ginnie Hart: HA! You have a long memory, LC!!!
belle compo!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, JP.

Lovely photo smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Cherry.
Hey, I thought it was boats on Friday! grin

Lovely capture, Ginnie... smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! Boat Friday...and sometimes Bike Friday and Windmill Friday....we get to choose, of course. smile
Like many others mentioned...you nailed it on the composition! Fun!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Robin. This is one of my own personal "bests," if you want to know the truth.
