Once in a while I get an idea in my head that I can’t let go of. I had visions of a little red radio flyer tricycle for months. I scoured every online source hoping for a chance at finding one second hand, with no luck. Then one day I went to check out Reclaimed Canada, a salvage studio here in Calgary. Now, if you haven’t been here yet, go! – seriously – your eyes won’t know where to look first. The store is filled, floor to ceiling, with items that have been salvaged from old barns, and they can even design custom furniture with the old pieces of barn wood.
But anyways – back to my point. I was walking around the store and something caught my eye. High up on a shelf was this vintage trike, complete with a broken wheel, a bell, tassels on the handlebars, chipped paint, and dents all over the seat.
It was perfect.
I snatched that baby up and waited for a golden sunset in September to go out and take some photos of my boys:) Not only do they look devastatingly handsome in their suspenders, but this was probably my most successful photo shoot with them because they got to play on the bike and little fire engine, and they almost forgot that I was there taking pictures.
