Pellegrino and Wellies

Pellegrino and Wellies

She was biking home from work, bravely corduroy-skirted on a non-stepthrough frame. There is a lot to be said for not needing bicycle clips and keeping hydrated. Seen in the Belltown neighborhood.

Several people have thought the green San Pellegrino can to be beer, but it is Italian sparkling water. I tend to call any short, lined leather boots with pull grips "Wellingtons," although these probably are not, as one fellow has commented that they are more "biker boots" of a non-bicycling nature ;^). Ah, fashion in all its incarnations.

This just in: Thanks to KittyKat for the tip that these are Frye's $180 "Harness" boots.

Wellies are rubber rain boots.

I love the photo, wellies or not! What a trendy!

It would seem a bit hot for short skirts and lined boots. Maybe the beer explains the behavior.

Nice shot.

Surprise, surprise, surprise. It's me!

I love your powers of observation. The story is in the details... a fine story.

Not sure I'd wear a skirt to ride a bike, but that's just me. I would have taken the clothes to work in a back pack and wore shorts and sneakers.

Another wonderful shot. One of many really interesting compositions that you have posted over the past month. Your work just gets better and better!

Great pic - I love how you framed it. I think those might be Frye boots, but I could be wrong...
