Looks like this beach bicycle rack is in competition with the shrubbery for prime 'real estate'...or perhaps there is a reason for this 'take-over'! It is fascinating to consider the potential impact of the invasion of 'chaos' to the 'order' here. The bicycles seem to be taking it all in stride...but the outsider's view, this may look disruptive. Often times I've walked into classrooms that, from the naked eye, appear to be disorganized and out of control; however, identifiable features indicate that it really is a type of 'controlled chaos' - one that considers individual learning styles and goals, one that invites conversation and interaction, and one that can have a transformational change on the nature of learning. Of course, not all disruptive observations translate to a positive effect (in fact, some are truly quite negative), but it is worth a deeper look! 4th Ave N & Gulf of Mexico, Naples, FL
