The Spotted Photo Theme for this post is vehicles. For my post, I’m picking the bicycle, because it has always been a favorite of mine. It is environmental friendly and easy to use, as well as being beneficial to your health, and obviously I have taken quite a few photos of it in the past. What is your preferred form of transportation?

Spotted Photo Theme August 2015

The Spotted Photo Theme should reflect any vehicle that you photograph a lot. It could be your car, roller skates, the train or anything else that makes you move forward in the word – and that you’ve photographed a few times over the years. Maybe it’s air balloons, passing above high up in the air? Or air-plains? Or… If you want to join this meme you are most welcome!

What themes do you spot in your photographs? Join the fun: Spotted Photo Theme - inspired by iHanna at If you would like to join me, or if you’re new to my prompt “Spotted Photo Theme”, then read my Introduction to the idea behind the Spotted Photo Theme first. Always feel free to paste a link to your post about the Spotted Photo Theme in the comments below. Use my theme, or tweak it to fit what you have photographed – the theme is loose and open to personal interpretations. Link back to me by text or using the spotted theme-button. Thank you for taking the time to look through your photos and sharing them, isn’t it fun to look for a theme like this?

As I made this post I noticed that most of my bike photos are “older”, that is about 7-8 years old, from the time when I lived higher up in Sweden, in Ume. It’s an university city, so I guess I noticed bikes a lot back then. But this one is my most recent one, from a trip to Dalarna this summer:

A rather modern looking bike, probably inspired by the kurbits painting style of Dalarna, Sweden.

And obviously I’ve always noticed pink bikes…

My trusty old bike
My trusted, red old bike that is now retired. We’ve been through a lot together, as you can imagine… I got it when I turned 11 years old and that is a long long time ago.

Hanging bike in the hallway
Hanging repair in the kitchen? Once this sight met me when I came home.

Ride my bicycle!
Ume city. Typical Ume view, and most of my bike photos are from when I lived up in Ume. There are a lot of bikes in student cities, right?

Well, also had to include this one. Might be the coolest bike of them all, a HD that I photographed on my biker friends wedding day.
