Venlo in Colour 18

Riding over such cobblestones is going to identify all (if any) the loose and insufficiently bolted parts of the bike.

Best in series, so far, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the kind comment, Ray. I find this street especially picturesque even on non festive periods.
Très jolie photo avec toutes ces illuminations.
Ayush Basu: Merci, Martine.
What a nice scene Ayush, not quite the Paris-Roubaix, but I see what you mean about loose parts.
Ayush Basu: There is a real risk of even loose change coming out of your pockets, Frank. grin
Once again, these lights are so beautiful - and the reflections are wonderful!
Ayush Basu: I find this street especially picturesque even on non festive periods, Elizabeth, and the wet stones helped.
Nice framing and composition, Ayush... smile
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Sudipto. By the way, I could not connect to your site - will try again.

That must be quite a bumpy ride, Ayush
Ayush Basu: My backside does not quite agree such ride quality, however this is not that long a lane, Lisl.

A badly maintained bike could be shaken to bits..
Ayush Basu: Including the riders joints and teeth, Chris.
When shock absorbers are imperative, Ayush. Looking forward to seeing you soon!
Ayush Basu: Oh yes, and perhaps a well padded seat too, Ginnie. And likewise, always a pleasure to meet you both.

You made me smile about that road, make sure your mouth is closed, your dentures might fall out grin..
I love this picture. You did a great job!!
Ayush Basu: Haha, you are right about... dentures, loose change in pockets, spectacles, the list goes on, Astrid.

I hope you jumped out of the way before you were run over Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Those pesky photographers! grin

A typical winter scene in a Dutch environment. Where you see a bunch of bicycles there will be a number of empty beer bottles.
Ayush Basu: That is perhaps my only gripe about the Dutch cycling paths - everything is smooth and well planned but smashed glass is a regular feature of riding and sometimes I am unable to avoid them in time, Louis.
AND the loose parts of your butt bone! lol
Ayush Basu: From my own experience, I will not disagree with you, Elaine. tongue
This works really well with the cyclist in that position.
Ayush Basu: Yes I was pleased to have included her in the shot, Brian - there were few and far that night.
Love the tone you are giving these images, Ayush. Cobblestones are hard enough to walk on so I can imagine the jolts you would be getting riding a bike over them.
Ayush Basu: The warm toned lights bouncing off the brickworks help, Beverly. Thank you for the kind comment. smile
This is a fine shot Ayush. The cyclist is just right
Ayush Basu: I am delighted I was able to include her in the shot, Bill - there were not too many of them that night.
You certainly do a great job of these night shots.
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the kind comment, Mary - I got lucky and the elements came together.

this one is much busier with people and bicycles

nicely captured
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Sherri. I find it typical Dutch for cyclists to be out and about on their bikes, for whatever business and in any weather.
That's certainly true! Lovely image, Ayush.

This is really pretty with the lights and reflections. Very festive.
