A Small Sign of Spring and I'm Dreaming of Bicycles...

The warm weather is coming (though it may only be a glimpse). I keep dreaming of riding my bicycle as soon as the ice pack melts.

YMCA, Astoria, Oregon, c. 2007

August Sander, Westerwald, 1926-27

Bill Brandt, Coal Searcher Going Home to Jarrow, 1937

Henri Cartier-Bresson, Plazza della Signoria, 1933

William Eggleston, Memphis, 1980

Claes Oldenberg, Buried Bicycle, 1990

Romuald Hazoumè, La Roulotte, 2004

Olafur Eliasson, Your New Bicycle, Urania, 2010

Ai WeiWei, Forever, 2003


  1. That could very well be a long lost cousin in the Bill Brandt photo.

  2. It really must be something about the approaching season, I've been dreaming about riding my bicycle too. Love the Brandt and Cartier-Bresson images.

  3. At least you braved the cold Laura and rode your bike to work (wow!). i want to ride the balloon tired Schwinn that is in Oregon, sadly not here. it seems so "spring leisurely." amelia's long lost cousin! reunited at last!

  4. I wouldn't mind having Mr. Oliasson's bicycle. These images should help get me through a this spring storm.
