That’s my 25 year-old bike!

Back in 1982 or 83 or so, we had a family reunion/picnic at the end of this old trail road; you could drive cars on it then. Not long after that, the trail was closed off and it is, as you can see, now blocked and overgrown.

    This is a great capture! I love the composition, the colors, and the focus. I would only have asked for a bit of space on bottom of the back wheel, just a tad more… but it is very nice anyhow!

    What’s the bike doing there! Missing brightness and hi-lights. It’s just a lot of beige and green.

    I’m glad you still keep the bike. To be honest, it’s an uninteresting shot for me: nothing’s really happening here, nor the light is remarkable or the place or the composition. Not my kind of pictures. The exposition is ok though, and the atmosphere kinda inviting.

    Thank you all; excellent comments.

    @Sergio – Yup, I know what you mean, me too. If only I’d stepped back a bit or tried a portrait orientation, but I was more interested in riding that day. The drop off from the road to where I was standing was about a foot… all washed out… stepping back onto the park’s road (on a blind curve no less) wasn’t really safe or feasible.

    @shootit – Yes, that’s a frisbee. They make a great tray and a good cover to keep water and mud off one’s backside from the open wheel.

    The washed out exposure is a common and frustrating problem with the low res Canons I favor.
