I guess it was a little too crowded up there. Love the black and white.
Picturit: Trying to park your bike in this university city is almost impossible, Michael. Bikes are the main way of transportation.

A close thing!

Love this image, Astrid.
Picturit: Thank you, Ray. I would like to count all the bikes that fall into the water though..

Ce vélo est en mauvaise posture.
Picturit: Many bikes fall into the water, Martine.
Oh dear! I hope it will be rescued - it's friends seem to have gathered... Excellent, Astrid!
Picturit: I thought the same thing, but then many bikes have that fate and hopefully the owner will soon come.
Thank you, Elizabeth.
Save me! I hope someone does, Astrid, nice shot.
Picturit: I think it was attached with a lock to the bridge, Frank. Always tricky to get it on the road again.
This had you written all over it, Astrid. What a fun day out on Saturday.
Picturit: Thank you, Ginnie. We had a great day considering the weather and the company.

Oh, what a wonderful find with this reflection!
Picturit: Thank you, Philine. There are so many bikes and I love the shapes of it.

What a wonderful picture this is Astrid. One of the bikes is trying to escape
Picturit: Thank you, Chris. Always make sure the bike is locked otherwise it will live its own life and get away...
Oups.....esperons qu'il ne tombera pas ..
Picturit: Some do end up in the canal beneath it... and they have to dredge the canal again.

Excellent photograph, it looks as if the bicycles have been squabbling over who goes where.
Picturit: Thank you, Chad. Bicycles are in constant battle of who has the right away and who goes first and who has the best parking place.
I like the shadow of the wheel on the wall Lady P
Picturit: One of those lucky things added because of the sun.
We had a great time with Ayush in Utrecht.
Ha ha....wat leuk gezien en mooi uitgevoerd in zwart-wit.
Zaten jullie toen in een bootje ?
Picturit: Langs de grachten van Utrecht kan je op waterniveau lopen, er zijn daar ook restaurantjes. Dit is vanaf dat niveau genomen. Er zijn inderdaad rondvaarten in de grachten van Utrecht.
Ik heb zelf in Utrecht gestudeerd maar ben altijd weer onder de indruk van het "parkeren" van de fietsen.

An old cow being forced out of the herd. The picture is excellent.
Picturit: Thank you, Louis. All those bikes in Utrecht I think it is fascinating to se and once my bike was in between these bikes HA HA HA.
Guess what, at the end of May we are in the USA again and you are in Brussels....
I guess this is somebodies idea of a joke smile I believe you met Ayush on Saturday in Utrecht, I hope you all had a good day together.
Picturit: No Brian, this is just too many bikes in one spot and this bike was maybe in the way. We had a delightful day with Ayush. We have met now three times and it was real nice to have this time together again. Before he goes home again we plan to come together again and drive into Germany for a day trip.

the owner of that bike might have to look very hard for his/her bike or scratch head, Astrid.
Picturit: It is always an adventure to get your bike in Utrecht, Ayush. Too many bikes and too little space.
We had a fun day, thank you Ayush.
Absolutely excellent conversion, Astrid, and that shadow is perfecto!
Picturit: Thank you kindly, Mary. This is the kind of photography I like to be picking up.
Good heavens have lovers started chaining their bikes to bridges? smile
Picturit: Ha, that will be the day. Every once in a while they will clean the streets from bikes.

Bike parking beginning to be a problem?
Picturit: It was already in 1971 when I studied in Utrecht and it is getting worse.

I love the shadow of the almost fallen bicycle.
Picturit: It is one of those scenes that asked to be capture, Cherry. Thank you.
Love that dangling bike...
Picturit: Thank you, Larry. In Utrecht it is a "bike jungle" and it still fascinated me.
hanging on... good in b&w Astrid....petersmile
Picturit: Indeed so, Peter. Thank you kindly.
A manual parking, nice shot
Truly "over the edge!" Great sighting!
Picturit: Many bikes like that. Like in Amsterdam. Always fun to see bikes like that and wonder how they will "end".
