My World: Toy Run (Part 1)

No landscape photos from me this week, but I would like to share with you some photos from Toy Run.

Toy Run is an event when motorcyclists get together to donate toys to underprivileged children. In Melbourne, the annual Toy Run was held last Sunday (13 December 09).

It was a huge event, with lots of participants arriving on motorbikes decorated with Christmas trimmings and toys. I went along with my husband and his friends. While the boys were checking out other riders’ machines, I was busy taking photos.

This sweet little guy has a friend sitting behind him, and they are securely fastened to the bike.
