091104 Fade Away With The Autumn Leaves



Oxford is, of course, famous for its bicycles. But what happens to bicycles when they are old, bent, rusty and missing a wheel? Are they recycled? No, it would appear that they are attached to a convenient lamp post and left to slowly fade away with the Autumn leaves.

Looks like one for Morse and Lewis.

Alan, this looks like a scene from a South African street...where theft reigns supreme (amongst other things). I agree with John; a case for Inspector Morse!

Looks like somebody drove over the back wheel with their car. Your leaves look just like ours, drying up and ready to be raked. I am still trying to get use to the idea that you have rubbed shoulders with the people who I have admired their work so much. It really is a much smaller world than we know.
