Dominoes?


Early on a Sunday morning I spied these 7 delivery bikes which had suffered the tumbling effect of dominoes.

Zoom-zoom!

Voilà une photo intéressante. Il faut toujours avoir l'esprit en éveil pour réaliser un bon cliché.
Bon week-end, Genie!

This brings me right back to the crazy traffic of Paris! Ahh! Thanks Genie.

jb said...

Just like in Tom Petty's "Great wide open" video

Suzi said...

The sushi shop might have trouble delivering.

not long now :)

Joe said...

Great title. The Sushi Shop would not have been happy. Nothing another cup of saki wouldn't fix.

Dianne said...

Made me laugh - I guess I wouldn't be laughing if they were my bikes!!

Andi said...

Great photo!

Andy said...

The photo makes me want to lean to one side.

Tena Russ said...

It would be tough extricating one from the middle of the pile. Excellent photo!

Aesthetic Alterations said...

Too funny! (Does this mean you're already there?! I hope so!)

M said...

Great, funny photo! Love It in B&W.

Virginia said...

This is Belgium said...

Great black and white photography !

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Richard -- Merci... C'est vrai

Brittany -- I did wonder just how this little accident happened

jb -- Hummmm....

Suzi -- I think that the shushi shop will be quite unhappy with this scene... I did not linger after my photo lest I be accused!

Joe -- A bit early for saki that morning but I do not think that there was any damage more than a few scratches

Dianne -- My first thought was... avalanche!

Andi -- Merci, mon amie!

Andy -- It does the same to me - hah!

Tena -- Yes, I think that they will have to start at the end and work toward the middle

AA -- No, but almost!!

Marie -- To me, it seemed more like a b&w crime scene - haha!

Virginia -- In Paris, I burn the candle at both ends (but probably not 3am)

Belgium -- Merci, mon amie - bon weekend!

Alexa said...

The city equivalent of cow-tipping? Wonder if some kids came along the night before and just couldn't resist playing dominoes with these scooters.

JM said...

Great title! :-)

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Alexa -- You are too funny! However, you may be right... It would be very tempting to just give a little push or bump...

JM -- Merci, José!

Picturit said...

Lots of Black and white images in blogland today. This is great but I would be tempted to give them a push and watch them fall like dominoes.

Starman said...

A sushi shop that delivers? Interesting.

Amanda said...

great foto, genie. bet it wasn't fun for the owners to untangle that mess~

Birdman said...

Hope they don't fall.

biebkriebels said...

O, dear, looks like the bikes in Amsterdam. Big city problems.

Halcyon said...

Ooops!

I was thinking they were pizza bikes, another Dominoes reference. ;)

Arti said...

Beautifully captured, reminds me of the cluttered streets of Varanasi in India!!
Have a lovely Sunday :)

Randy said...

Perfect title and I love the b&w version. Yes I do remember Quick Draw McGraw, it used to be one of my favorites.

James said...

I can picture a couple of drunk young French guys and one strong kick a few hours earlier. Peut-être? :)

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Picturit -- Yes, and that's exactly what might have happened... no resistance to some temptation.

Starman -- Yes, I thought that too!

Amanda -- I did not hang around to find out! eeek

Birgman -- I think that all but the last two did already!

biebkriebels -- I do think that the bikes are less of a hazard than the abundance of cars

Halcyon -- Verrrrry good, my friend!

Arti -- Well, now, that is another place I must see

Randy -- Knowing your recent birthday, I thought that you might have known QDMcG -- The b&w here just seemed to go with the scene.

James -- Oh yes... I can visualize just the scene!

Definitely the work of le prankster extraordinaire!!!

I've taken many shots of rows of Vespers and such, even one pink one! But never a row of tipsy bikes!!!
