(Normally I would separate these images into two postings to speed downloading. But I have many images to post backlogged and since most are on one strict theme, I am putting them all out at once. Sorry if this is an inconvenience.)
Recently I went downtown in my little town, Putnam, Connecticut, to do some photography. I quickly noticed that the area had been taken over by an art project: old bikes had been spray painted in bright colors and adorned with flowers. So along with some general pictures from the area, you get a review of some of the storefront art bikes.
The first photo is a bike outside of Sawmill Pottery, a ceramic arts studio owned and managed by Dot Bursnworth, a dear friend and an amazing potter. Notice that the grips, and front and rear baskets are made out of fired clay!
Before viewing the photographs, I would also like to invite you to visit the poetry blog, the Book of Pain. As always, special thanks to my dearest Lyn, She Of Great Taste In All Things But Men, who does most of the photo selection. Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh.
Tibetan prayer flags are meant to be slowly torn apart by the wind, thus casting their blessings wherever the threads travel to.
This is a picture taken through another close friend, Anthony Foronda’s storefront, String Tinkers, which sells all sorts of stringed instruments including (and perhaps best) their own hand-made cigar box guitars and banjos. If you play guitar or banjo, you owe it to yourself to check the web site out!
Lyn says these are absolutely delicious, but I’ve not had anyone who loves me enough to take me there to have one. Sigh.
