Slow to start, but it still rolls along

“My bike is very old and it is hard to start again when I stop.”

Photographer’s notes: By the time I spoke this rider, I had been following her block after block, waiting for her to stop at a light so I could introduce myself. Every time, she rolled slowly to the light from a distance, almost stopping, and then the light would change and she would start again.

Did you notice the posters sticking out of her backpack?

“This is my small, small job. I hang them on the wall. This is from the Conservatorium at La Monnaie.”
