i saw this orange bike


in temple bar the other weekend. why would you paint your bike orange? orange is such a strange colour. it reminds me of easyjet. it's a cheap colour.

in dublin, it is fashionable for girls to paint their bodies orange. often streaky orange. i like to think of them as a new race: the orange people.

I saw this bike a few weeks ago when i was in Dublin and was kicking myself i didn't have my camera! I was thinking maybe its so it won't get stolen? I mean who's going to rob a neon orange bike! Its a good idea...wouldn't go for orange myself though...maybe a nice purple...or red

btw i just found your blog through Beaut.ie, Its great!

Could be that! I thought it might be some sort of a weird promotion for something, I mean even the wheels are orange. I've seen other people's pictures of in on flickr, so it seems to be there all the time...

Thanks miss milki, I actually clicked through to your blog on Beaut.ie earlier today too. It looks great, but I haven't had the chance to read it properly yet. Will look later (too busy trying to win those goodie bags at the mo :))

Thanks for your comment Tina.
I like your blog, get the idea very well.
Did you take the latest photos this weekend? I had been hanging around Temple Bar on Sat an Sun, it's quite possible I spotted you.
Waiting for more photos.

PS. The orange bike is always there...
