Last time, I posted some pictures about Windows and Doors. This time, I thought I’d post some shots I’ve taken of wheels. I won’t bother getting into any “circle of life” analogies because, to be honest, I don’t think that has anything to do with why I like these photographs. There’s just something about them.
All right, here we go…
1. Lion’s Head, Canada
While there isn’t actually a wheel in this photo, I wanted to post it. I found it while walking along a trail with my father. It’s an old, abandoned van in the middle of the forest. I have no idea how it got there or why there are bullet holes riddled throughout it. I guess it’s just one of those things.
2. Nha Trang, Vietnam
Off on a daily boat cruise, I took this picture of a boat we had pulled up beside. We had stopped for an hour of snorkelling.
3. Lima, Peru
Wandering around the capital of Peru, I came across these dollies (or are they trollies?). I have no idea what they were being used for. There wasn’t any one else around. There wasn’t even a delivery van. At least, not that I could see.
4. Bologna, Italy (I think)
I can’t actually remember where I took this photo. I think it was in Bologna. It was definitely in Italy. My ex and I had stopped to wander around the city for the day and saw this as soon as we got out of the train station. I do remember thinking how hard it would be to find my bike if I had parked it here, though!
5. Ninghai, China
While living in China, I saw a little of the area outside the city I was staying in. This was in a small village that looked as though it was straight out of the 1700s. There were several small homes, a few larger buildings (like the school and government offices), and waterways that went along most of the streets. Although it was a heritage sight, people still lived there. There were a lot of construction workers making their way in and out of the streets with these carts. There were also a lot of people washing their clothes in the waterways. I had even found a coffee shop I was excited about…until I realized that it was closed.
6. Ningbo, China
I wasn’t actually going to post this, then I thought why not? The picture itself isn’t anything too great, but the bike is! It’s the bike I had while living in China. Of course, if I thought I got enough attention by being a foreigner, this only made it that much worse! Luckily, more and more people started riding bikes like this and, after a while, I started to get used to it. (Well, by after a while I mean around four months…but, hey, that’s no problem 🙂 ).
And that’s it. Hope you enjoyed ’em!
