Country bike

Friday, February 24th, 2012

  • I’ve come to a country town a couple of hours from Melbourne to spend the weekend with my friend Kylie. She’s just got a new job and will be staying in a beautiful little place that looks like it’s come from the pages of Country Living magazine. It’s a rustic old barn house complete with beautiful antique furniture, wonderfully hand crafted fittings, and brilliantly reclaimed items that give the place a quite magical feel that I confess leaves me a little envious.

    I took a few internal shots of her new place, trying to capture its charm in the way those glossy magazines always seem to. But in the end I liked this picture the best. The old blue bike by the door is covered in cobwebs and clearly hasn’t taken anyone anywhere in quite some time.

    I think Country Living would probably overlook the old bike if they came calling, so just in case that happens and it doesn’t make it onto those glossy pages, I thought I’d give the old bike an opportunity to shine once more.

    If you’re enjoying this blog please consider telling someone else about it. I’ll keep publishing new material either way, but it’s a good feeling when I know someone is out there enjoying this stuff.
