Five Wheels, Three Arms

I waited behind them, snapped a shot. But then I was wondering why the chap would choose a tricyle. He looked all dapper and casual in his suit and scarf and even engaged the girl next to him in charming exchange of words and smiles.

 

I figured it was a style choice, that bike. Fair enough. It's a trendy city. Standing out is always a goal.

 

When the light changed, he cycled away, keeping his right hand in his pocket. Or so I thought. It was then i realised that he was missing his right arm. Of course. That's why he pedals around on a tricycle.

 

And how wonderful and Copenhagenesque that he still chooses a bike over other transport forms.
