“This summer, I am in Belgium doing a Wounded Warriors bike tour. I have to do about 600 kilometres in seven days. The dog is coming with me.”

Photographer’s notes: I came across the amputee, on the right, and was having a chat. He saw the woman approaching and simply flagged her down. Apparently they knew each other in passing. Literally. They had waved to each other as they were on their respective journeys. As we were talking about cycling and disabilities, he thought her voice would be interesting and that was that. I sat back and listened for the first while as they met and had their first chat. Then I could blunder in.
