I can not remember "Stalin" written on the walls in Stavanger, but you never know if "he" might turn up.

Great shot VP.

Michelle said...

An interesting, and thought provoking, shot.

Jack said...

That is interesting. I would have thought that most people young enough to ride bicycles would not have much of a feeling for Stalin.

Randy said...

Very cool shot!

Dina said...

Dina - As you can see, contemporary art is always complicated and sophisticated...

Not a big fan of Stalin, but I do like bicycles.

This is such a contrast of ambient and beautiful surrounding by this zealot crazy statement.

Stalin = Stalling...

Amazing shot, really.

Well, I never knew he travelled, wielding his fist, on a bike. We learn something new everyday. hahaha
