Weekly Photo Challenge: Layers

Commonly the word layers is associated with layers of rocks or bricks, layers of sweet tasty cake, or layers of clothes – especially now when cold days are on our horizon. However, there are several meanings of this word. Here is one of them: layer – “a hen kept for egg production.”

Here are my photos of “layers of layers” traveling or rather being transported to their new destination – perhaps to lay more eggs or…perhaps not.

During one of my visits in Amsterdam (several years ago) I was stunned and mesmerized by colorful layers of bicycles waiting patiently for their riders in specially designated places – right in the heart of that big European city.

Many European cities are bicycle-friendly. Amsterdam is in fact super friendly. Consequently, the Dutch can eat their layered cakes without feeling guilty or fearful of gaining weight. Our cities should be full of bicycle-envy and follow Amsterdam’s path.

    I noticed the vast layers of bikes in Amsterdam too! They have the right ideas for transport. And it is very well supported by the people. Imagine a place where there are separate bike lanes all over a city like theirs!

      I totally agree. If we (you and I) know that it is imaginable than others might imagine, and perhaps we will see such layers of bikes in American cities too. Well, maybe not so soon,,,,

      Thanks for your comment – Alicja

    To the “layers” I say good luck.  I have a funny feeling, however, that they are going to be consumed by “payers” at KFC or Popeye’s….
