CDPB Theme Day and Monochrome Maniacs: Sepeda Onthel



This month's City Daily Photo Blog (CDBP) theme is "circles or spheres," and this is my interpretation of it.

"Sepeda onthel" or old bicycles have their own aficionados and they are on the increase. There are quite a number of old bicycle clubs in Bandung. They often have convoys, tours, or exhibition rides around the city and the countrysides. The owners of these old bicycles love them very much and are very proud of them.

I took this picture at Jalan Braga (street) in one of the exhibition rides they had recently.

This post is also Bandung Daily Photo's participation in the weekly meme "Monochrome Maniacs".

I love bicycles too despite my passion for motorbikes. Wonderful machines.
This pic certainly meets the challenge.

I'm ok with Aileni perfect subject.

The Doc Martens are so unusual to ride a bike! It's funny.

I love this picture.

Excellent monochrome, and good for the circles theme, too.

It's too dangerous to cycle in Melaka but I can certainly appreciate the value in the old bicycles.

I used to love to ride with my husband. He had a chair on his bike to carry my daughter when she was young. Wonderful memories..thank you for reminding me of them even though it wasn't your original intent of the photo..or maybe that really is what a photo is supposed to do. Evoke feelings...Hmm...
