    There is such a film noire look to this. It is as though that bicycle has sinister intent. It is to be avoided, and IS. The passers-by shun it and look upon it with distress and horror. Only that brave young man looks boldly, but with some trepidation. And the bicycle stands in water, which, in this context becomes, some strange poison.
    This deeply evocative shot holds such mystery. And THIS, YOU SAW, in a bicycle. Remarkable, Farras. Thank you.

    wow... how did i not see this before? i thought wtf? a bike just parked in the middle of the walkway, no one pays any attention... most places it wouldn't stay there long, unattended. but here is it. the reflection/shadow of the bike is wonderful and overall, it's a (as J put it) thoughprovoking piece.
