bikes...and bikes...and more bikes...









I always enjoy taking photos of bikes. I still find it astonishing that here in China, especially in Tianjin, there are so many bikes.

What really amazes me is how orderly they park their bikes. And that they can actually park on the street without their bikes being stolen!

Clytie, the bikes are stolen. almost everyday. But people cant do anything about it. The lock the bikes, but it doesn't work, I guess.
Since there are so many bikes, no other space for parking than on the streets.

There are plenty of them indeed. It recalls me Amsterdam - everyone there rides a bike:)
Have a nice weekend Dani!

I wonder if there are as many bikes as people in China? Very cool photos! Especially like the tilt-shift effect :D

PS: I'm actually looking for a bike right now!

So strange to see so much things, bikes, or people, after Iceland, which is so... empty!:)

Wow--you're right. I've never seen so many bikes in one city before. That's amazing.
