Smile, life is life

©Barry Sandland/TIMB – The weather is getting colder, but this gentleman was a fun, warm chat.

“You should laugh all the time. Not just on a bike.”

Photographer’s comments:
I stopped quickly when I saw this man readying his bike – brooms and mops still to be attached. He has a fast, ready smile. From the Belgium diplomatic corp, he is now the first person I have spoken to in a decade who actually does not have an e-mail address. The chat lasted as long as it took for him to strap all the handles and brooms to his frame – a chat that covered his work in the diplomatic corp, his stations  around the globe, and the delicate nature needed to balance large, heavy loads on a bike.
