Hump Day Pics Of The Week – 83

leave a comment »

It’s time to pick the Hump Day Pics Of The Week. Again, thanks goes out to the contributors to the Suburban Assault Flickr Pool.

There is something to be said about the beauty of decay. Even though all good things come to an end, not even rust can make a bike look bad. In fact, these shots articulate a certain unexpected charm and appeal.

Through these rusted bikes I’m reminded of my own resistance to growing old and these words from Tennyson’s Ulysses:

…Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

This week’s theme will be “decay“.

I hope you enjoy this set and check back each week to see what shots get picked. Be sure to check out the Flickr page to see all the awesome bike shots shared by our extremely talented contributors.
