Does Anybody Really Know?

i'm going to depart from my normal
quasi-philosophical musings
and photographs that explore
light and shadow,
reflections
and other things beautiful

to post "kitsch and quirky"
because this
was just too weird
not to photograph

if you know what i mean

can you imagine
trying to balance yourself
while riding this piece of art?

or maybe the point is being
unbalanced.

maybe the feeling of being
out of synch
is what's being celebrated artistically.


i don't know.

but just so i don't
lose my touch,
permit me to wax philosophical
for just a wee moment

to ask
(this is a great place to groan)

"Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?"

is this actually a contraption that is used as transportation? i would have thought this was more of an art piece! :)

I think Metro's giving these to people so they can get out of the bus tunnels.

The clocks? That's City Council time, for sure.

Hi Meri

Obviously someone with a lot of time on their hands...

and good balance...

Happy days

Thanks for that great Chicago video--and your wonderful 'musings'!

i think my "marilyn" should ride your "bike"!

An artsy bike for sure. Definitely not something one could pass up. Have a great day.

Perhaps the rider has such a keen sense of inner balance, nothing can throw her awry. :)

Not sure if this will create a link for you... or I'll e-mail it to you.

Very amusing montage of the bike on wheels and the Chicago song "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?" Witty, droll. There must have been some "float in a parade" contest for most wildly decorated.
