I thought this was your bike Dougie TongueGrin. Thought you had worn down the tyres travelling all around Scotland, but the lack of a seat made me change my mind. Or maybe you take the seat off to stop folk nicking your bike GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin. Puts me in mind of my Dad's old racing bike. Moira

It's a tireless effort cleaning up our beaches Dougie, but one which brings up so many great finds...

A wheely good image, very well framed with great handling....

Amazing: has almost the visual effect of selective colour without the artificiality.

That's what I thought too Bill. Apart from the missing seat and tyres and bit of rust, it doesn't look in too bad condition does it? Amazing what people dump but good 'photographic' find.

Quite a find, Dougie. Someone dumped it, but now you've recycled it as a photographic subject.Blush

The buoy on the right is sharing the joke, it's smiling.

I hope you don't get a drunk coming out the pub Dougie,
and planting his backside where the saddle should be !!
Good shot.

It actually doesn't look in that bad of shape. And now it's a plant stand. Good shot.

Moira has seen it too - the buoy on the right is smiling, the other is still in shock, it's mouth frozen in a scream. "Washed up" is a very nice play on words.
