This week’s challenge (albeit a little late) was “Old and Used”.

Sitting at my local cafe the other day I noticed the light fixture above one of the large tables and thought it would be perfect for this challenge. This cafe is set in the back of a bike shop and the owner has repurposed the materials he had at hand to decorate the cafe. Luckily I always carry my Olympus mirrorless camera with a 17mm prime (35mm full-frame equivalent) in my handbag for just such an occasion.

These old bicycle wheels make up the main structure of a large light fitting, to which the creator has used ropes to hang the light globes from. It is a super cool set up and I particularly liked the contrast between the bulbs, the wheels and the white and black of the ceiling.

Next week I will be looking at: Things that don’t belong together
