Peeling Back The Orange

A BICYCLE spray-painted bright orange and chained to a pole caught my eye at the local mall. I quickly realized there were several similarly sprayed bicycles nearby. A salesclerk helped me unravel the mystery. Turns out a fitness center called Orangetheory opened up at Peninsula Village Mall recently and the once discarded bikes became perfect sculptures to draw attention.

Visit Orange You Glad It's Friday to soak in more of the luscious color.

  1. O, this is the cutest thing. Makes me want to find a bike, spray it, fill the basket with flowers and park by my fence....:)
    Great entry for ORANGE YOU GLAD....
    please swing by and see my orange (which is a whole lot duller than your great oranges...:)

  2. Very striking in orange♪

  3. Those are great in nice shades of orange.

  4. Great captures/posts for OYGIF. I just wish the painters had taken the trouble to be a little more discriminating about where they sprayed the paint. I think it would have looked classier had they chosen fewer sites to turn orange.

  5. Thank you so much for joining last week's link up. One of the orange bikes will be featured on OYGIF this weekend. Hope you could drop by.

  6. A pefect orange post. And what a great marketing idea

  7. What a good idea! The discarded bicycles got the second life. I like the way how they are displayed and your framing of the images. I don’t know why I missed this post but excuse me for this late visit.


  8. That's very clever marketing. I love orange also...

    What's it like now that Koco's is gone? Have the townhouses gone up yet?


  9. Oh my! How perfect! And, you did an amazing job with those captures. Don't you just want to jump on one of those bikes and ride off into the sunset? :)

  10. Yes indeed Jen, townhouses have gone up since Koco is no more ... and with a Wired Monk underneath.

    Carol, I would love to ride off into the sunset as long as it is not uphill. :)
