One Way to do It!

HA!  Needless to say, this bike  really caught my eye.  I'm sure it's easier to find at the end of the day!

Guess what!  In these next 4 days, I'll be meeting up with TWO SCers here in Amsterdam!  Today I meet with Ade Adeyemi (cremechic26) and on Sunday with Petra.
How cool is that!

Have fun with those SC folks and try to avoid bike debacles like this! Funny shot. Thanks for sharing!
Ginnie Hart: Actually, Martin, I think it looks pretty smart to me. It means no one is gonna crash into it! smile

I plan to have a great day with Ade today!

Oh my! International gatherings as well as all the day-to-day SC interaction -- that's really something, Ginnie. Have a great time with the SCers, and say hi from all of us.
Ginnie Hart: I will definitely say "HI." We'll be saying HI to each other in every language we can manage. Thanks, Jimbo.
lol...great spot and shot Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, kind sir. smile (HA! I've been assuming you're a sir but may be totally wrong! Please correct me if so.)
Good catch. Makes for a fun image.
Ginnie Hart: It definitely is different from the ordinary, Red Pen. Thanks.
That's really cool that you're meeting up with SCers. It's a great community!
Ginnie Hart: I feel very lucky, Mary. I've already met 5 of the bloggers from my other blogging community and know how fun it can be.
lol -- love it!
Ginnie Hart: And YOU, dear friend, are one of those bloggers I've met from my other blog! It's a small world after all!
Hmm, did you tie this bike up yourself Ginnie, then shoot the photo? Makes me wonder! Just kidding. This is a great shot. It makes me wonder how and why this bike was tied up here. Another good story, I'm sure. Well done!
Ginnie Hart: Oh yes, of course I did that, Kay. All by myself! You would have been so proud of me! grin

My story about the bike is that it's safer from stealing and someone else crashing into it. It made perfect sense to me. smile
Awesome, interesting shot with great tones. Really like it! Lots to see (love that in a picture too) Lucky you to meet up with the other ShutterChancers..have fun!! Ohhh, and we need pictures of the meets too I think !!
Ginnie Hart: Yup. That's definitely one of my assignments, DD--lots of pics. Maybe we can even get some together, since I'll take my little gorillapod with me. smile
That's great if you can meet 2 SCers !
Amsterdam with its bridge and rivers offers great possibilities to park bikes ! I like the "sepia" tone, between grey and brown.
And thanks Ginnie for your com yesterday... a birthday to come, then !
Ginnie Hart: Yup! We all are getting older, as they say, Florence! grin

I'm really excited about meeting Ade today and then Petra on Sunday. It's like Thanksgiving and Christmas coming so close together!
Well spotted Ginnie. Have a lovely few days.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, PP. You, too.
No me extraña que la bicicleta te haya cautivado!. Es una composición que llama la atención además el tono sepia acompaña a crear una ambiente especial !
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Jose. Thanks.
I wouldn't be trying to get on that to cycle home after a few kleinsche of Heineken. (I think that's the correct word for those beer glasses I drank from last time I was in Asterdam?)
Ginnie Hart: HA! I can see you blubbering around in the canal as we speak, David. grin
Now that is one great shot. Thats the kind of photography I admire - spotting things that are unusual and then being in the moment to capture them. Hope you have a nice time with Ade and Petra - say my Hello too smile
Ginnie Hart: That's so kind, Thomas. Thank you. Ade and I had a fabulous time today. You'll see a pic of her tomorrow.
And there is a very international touch to this pic as well....to the right it says "Hammerfest" - that is the name of a place way up north in Norway - how cool is that grin
Ginnie Hart: Awww. Good piece of info there, Aksel, totally unbenownst to me. Thanks for that!
I live in belgium, but I'm Dutch. If you want to see the 'real' Amsterdam you will have to go also out of the touristic centre. In Zuid/oost you will find some reminds of the Bijlmermeer (if it isn't shut down). I was there when I was 13 wink ..
Ginnie Hart: Thanks for this tip, Tim. I'll definitely keep that in mind.

Have a blast! Will you be riding your bicycle? smile
Ginnie Hart: No bike yet, Ruth. But we had a totally wonderful 4-1/2 hours together. You'll see a pic of Ade tomorrow. smile

Hehe, what a brilliant idea! wink
Ginnie Hart: Someone was definitely pretty clever! smile
See that Aksel spot the Hammerfest sign too smile
Ginnie Hart: Yes. Good eye! smile

LOL, one way to park your bike grin Sounds like a fun time with the meet's Ginnie, give my regards to Petra - bit late for Ade!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, a bit late for Ade but we had a wonderful 4-1/2 hours together. Pic of her tomorrow! smile

you have been naughty again Ginnie!..

Throwing that bike over the rail really is not on to get your artistic juices flowing! lol

Great spot Ginnie and very well captured. mal
Ginnie Hart: Naughty Ginnie is having too much fun, Mal. grin

Thanks, as always, for your comments.

It'd be an absolute pig if they unlock it and then lose their grip on the bike! grin

There's so much to see in this picture, I could look at it for absolutely ages. Have you noticed that not a single person is looking at your camera? Love the colours too.
Ginnie Hart: Oh my, yes, Ellie. I never once thought of that debacle!

And yes, I did notice that no one is looking at the camera. But I didn't realize there were that many people till I stopped and counted them. Most of them blend into the background! smile

A little unconventional but probably effective. Great find! I love the tone.
Ginnie Hart: Effective, I'm sure, Julia! smile
Lol smile A good idea to park ! Maybe more difficult with a car ! A great shot Ginnie !!
Ginnie Hart: I agree, Zeb. Thanks. smile
Now, this I like. Stop exploiting my closet fascination with bicycles!!!
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well said, Tok. I tried to leave a comment on your site but couldn't figure it out! Thank you kindly for stopping by and commenting here.
A very good catch, Ginny: a good photo where a lot is going on.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks for backtracking to this, Wim. You're a total sweetheart and I'm so glad I met you! You really are an incredible artist...in the style my uncle and dad both would treasure.

It's such a small world!!!
The house witg Hammerfest on it is an old warehouse. Trade from all over the world came to Amsterdam in the old days, and warehouses often received names from faraway countries or towns.
Ginnie Hart: One of the things I like about blogging is that there is often someone who comes along to fill in the blanks! Thank you for this added info, Wim!
