Francine In Retirement
Seeing Life Through Photography


The Sunday Post challenge is “VEHICLE” sponsored by Jakesprinter.  Click on link to view more post on this challenge.  I was in a photography class last year and one of our assignment was to go on a photo shoot at a place called Bicycle Heaven.  Here are some photos of old bicycles I found there.


Here is some information I found on Wikipedia about vehicles:

A vehicle (from Latin: vehiculum[1]) is a mobile machine that is designed or used to transport people or cargo. Most often vehicles are manufactured, such as bicycles, cars, motorcycles, trains, ships, boats, and aircraft.[2]

Vehicles that do not travel on land often are called craft, such as watercraft, sailcraft, aircraft, hovercraft, and spacecraft.

Land vehicles are classified broadly by what is used to apply steering and drive forces against the ground: wheeled, tracked, railed, or skied. ISO 3833– 1977 is the standard, also internationally used in legislation, for road vehicles types, terms and definitions.[3]


Most popular vehicles:

The most common model of vehicle in the world, the Flying Pigeon bicycle.  There are over 1 billion bicycles in use worldwide.[22] According to 2002 estimates, there are around 590 million cars in service in the world, and 205 million motorcycles.[23][24] The most popular vehicle model in history is the Chinese Flying Pigeon bicycle, with on the order of 500 million in service.[25] The most popular motor vehicle is the Honda Super Cub motorcycle, having passed 60 million units in 2008.[26][27] The top selling car in history is the Toyota Corolla, with at least 35 million produced.[28][29]
