old faithful

Odemis, district of Izmir
It does have something that a newer bike doesn't...

Your photos are always awesome... bravo.
You don't leave me no other option that put you on my favorites... :-)

Wonderful. Could easily have been taken decades ago.

You are so right. Shiny new bikes have no appeal compared to beautiful old machines like this one.

I don't know, Monoblog. This bike is beautiful, yes, but maybe because it's in your photo.

It does remind of those days when life was so much simpler with precise moral values which coincided with everybody else's. Today there are so many different bicycles, with different colours, different shapes and sizes...just like the moral values: everybody seems to be allowed to pick and choose his/her own moral values he wants for him/herself.(That sounds really "old", doesn't it?

Bikes and photography go hand in hand, the older the better, Such an evocative image.

It has character and so does the photo.

Tr3nta, thank you so much for your generous comment; I'm glad you put me on your favorites.

Thank you Mo...

Snapper, your feedback is appreciated.

Petrea, thanks again for your generosity. :)

Diederick, wonderful interpretation; I'm optimistic; despite availability of different bicycle frame variations, early 1890s diamond frame is more or less as it is today, like moral values.

Thank you Niamph!

Thanks so much Babooshka.

Ann, thanks a million
