January 28. Day 28. Taking the gloves off

This is where I normally explain the background to today's image but today I've got nothing for you. Quite simply I don't know.
I don't know whose bike it is.
I don't know why it was left unlocked and unattended near a bike path by the river at West End.
I don't know where the owner was and I most certainly have absolutely no idea why there are pink rubber gloves on the handle bars.
What I do know is that I love it for all the reasons above. This is the sort of thing my son Mr O and I really enjoy. We have immense fun inventing a back story when we see something random. Our favourite was when we saw a guitar sticking out of a rubbish bin outside the Valley pool. Endless possibilities. All of them doubtless wrong.
If you can offer a completely implausible explanation to the pink rubber gloves I'd love to hear it.


  1. Scary! Is that a blue poncho? The gloves were to keep delicate hands dry on the way to the markets this morning....

  2. Haha! This made me laugh - what an inventive way to keep a bike dry :) x
