In a tiny courtyard in La Paz, Bolivia, I wandered in, lured by a fetching sign at the street, to find this unusual wooden carved bicycle as part of the decor of this out of the way hostel.

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.

    I think the absence of brakes is possibly worse. Sudden stops would be the contributor of slivers and possibly of secondary concern, IMO. Lol A fun pic, Phil.
