Weekly Whistle: Artistic Photo Shoot “Broken Bicycles”



An artistic photo shoot styled by Abby Hathorn inspired by Tom Waits’s Broken Bicycles.



Broken Bicycles by Tom Waits


Broken bicycles
Old busted chains
With rusted handle bars
Out in the rain

Somebody must
Have an orphanage for
All these things that nobody
Wants anymore

September’s reminding July
It’s time to be saying good-bye

Summer is gone
Our love will remain
Like old broken bicycles
Out in the rain



Broken bicycles
Don’t tell my folks
There’s all those playing cards
Pinned to the spokes

IMG_5725 IMG_5735

Laid down like skeletons
Out on the lawn
The wheels won’t turn
When the other has gone

IMG_5713 IMG_7642

The seasons can turn on a dime
Somehow, I forget every time

For all the things that you’ve given me
Will always stay…
Broken, but I’ll never throw them away





Stay Fabulous,

Abby Hathorn
