16th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
I was driving home from the train station and this couple crossed my path. They were a bit of illusive magic and delight and the streets of Rensselaer, NY. The more I think of them, the more I want to know about them. Why scooters? Why flags? Why a pet carrier? Why are they on the sidewalk? How do they go so darn fast? They defy stereotypes - they’re on scooters but they aren’t overweight. Is this an alternative to a car and a bike? So many questions... Yet, they’re moving but cars are standing still.
