Nice photo. Is that Mick's bike skulking in the undergrowth, on second look, naw I don't think so.

Goodness, doesnt it make you want to give up the bricks & mortar & go and live on a narrow boat !

Thank for the daydream Dave.

No, Ken, I think it's Howard and Marina!

Not so nice a photo if you do go skulking in the undergrowth you would find plastic bags of poo that the boat man has chucked there.

Nice,the smoke adds a lot,it appears the other bike frame has just been painted.

Did you ever paint a bike fame? You did all the prep work ,bought the new coloured paint from Halfords, painted as per instructions and still it turned out like c--p.

I painted my motorbike with Brushing Belco,it was Celulose and dried in 15mins,it was slapped on,one coat after another,after about 15 coats it could be smoothed off the next day with wet & dry,finishing with Brasso,the finished surface was brilliant.

When I last painted a bike frame there was no Halfords

Why is it only Helen has grasped the true sense of Oy?

Is it not surprising that most folk do not grasp the true sense of Oy.
There are Philistines out there who would say this is just a snap of a narrow boat on the cut. One despairs at times.

Mick, Halfords was founded in 1892. You last painted a bike before 1892...!!!
How old are you?

The Tracey Emin of 'photography' make of it what you will....!
