Wheels

I like to see wicker baskets on bikes. This is what I did with this one for Kim Klassen's challenge.
Photo A, Duplicate photo A then "Filter Forge photo effects Grunge, Nelly Nero action "Shabby Suicase" Kim Klassen texture "Breakfree at soft light and duplicate layer, inverting the texture the second time. Duplicate photo A then filter, coloured pencil 20% (this will become the top layer). I also blurred some of the outer parts of the photo.

You have made the contemporary photo look vintage. I like bikes with baskets too. They are charming and harken back to days of simpler, more earth friendly modes of transit.
