Two Collections that are Well Padded Yet Difficult to Steer
Romuald Hazoumè, Pied à terre, 2004
If you think the bicycle in Hazoumè's photograph looks overloaded, wait until you see Noah Sheldon's video below. In the words of Wholphin #14 (that I finally viewed last week), it is indeed "a most unusual way to protect your bike."

I cannot help but love the ingenious methods of transporting the collection, no matter how dangerous it may be. I am also curious about the breaking point or when it reaches too difficult to handle. How was that lesson learned and was it inadvertently repeated? Hazoumè's photograph and Sheldon's video are my metaphors for the pile of 1045 lists that I ceased collecting and posted about last week. I was drowning, much like this, in their teetering mass.
