day twelve...daydreams on wheels...





100 ideas by keri smith::number nine:
Draw your bike.

hmmmm...
another day of drawing...
this is pushing me outside of my box a bit
because
i don't consider myself able to draw...
i have a few things
i can draw recognizably
but i really struggle with
depth and scale and
trying to get any sort of correct
angle on something...

but i did it and i'm glad...
it was actually fun.

and the ironic thing is
i have a bike...
a hardcore expensive mountain bike
that my husband bought for me
that.
i.
never.
use.

i should.
but i don't...

but the idea of owning a vintage bike
with a basket and a bell...
that makes my heart beat faster.

{plus imagine all the photos opportunities!!}

Great job on the drawing.

At the corner of Richmond and Churchill there is a bike shop. They have this lovely orange bike with flowers. It's $750 dollars.

What I need is a good road bike. Not a funky orange one... however it would make my heart sing.

I keep coming back to this post and not leaving a comment. I have no idea why. I think it's because I don't have the words to really tell you how very much I love your vintage bicycle images. They make me happy. They make me smile. I really, really love them.
