I'm sure there must be a story behind this abandonded bike lock. Was it lost and then painted? Did the owner come back to collect their bike only to find the lock still covered on wet green paint? There must be a story!
I see this lock and seat every time I walk home - and I almost always wonder why or how.
I think you should make up a version of the story!
You can find more macro shots at Macro Monday 2 and I Heart Macro.
