Sad Bike

Why Me? Random Acts of Violence

So many questions crossed my mind as I took in this scene on 3rd Avenue this morning, just north of Bed Bath & Beyond. Why the blue bike and not the black one? Why take both tires and chain — why not the entire bike? (Yes, it appears that the blue bike had been locked.) Look at the massive chain that is securing the black bike — and notice the missing seat. A young man who wandered by while I was shooting said he thought the owner of the black bike had probably removed the seat when locking the bike.
