Le Tour – Kettlewell
The Tour de France comes to Yorkshire in July 2014 and the locals along the route have been decorating all the villages with a variety of yellow flags, jerseys and bikes.
The locals have a long tradition of set dressing their villages, many have scarecrow festivals, now they have a scarecrow on a bike
I saw this straw man just over the bridge into the delightful village of Kettlewell. A friend of mine is lucky enough to live here.
The composition is fairly straightforward, the dominant colour is Yellow which advances and contrasts against the grey clouds in the background. The main lead-in is the road, also look for two minor lead-ins that echo one another, the white dashed road markings on the left and the yellow flags offering a similar punctuation on the right.
Oh and this was taken on my iPhone.
