Abandoned


While talking a walk in the neighborhood, I came across this bicycle tossed down on the sidewalk with no one around.  There weren't kids in the vicinity, or adults for that matter.  The closest house is about a five minute walk.  It's a Schwinn beachcomber in pretty good condition.  (The golden sunlight on the oak tree in the background makes it look even nicer.)  On my return trip, it was still there --- just abandoned.  I'm curious as to the story here.

Interesting. Maybe someone stole it, took it for a joyride, and then left it...

Maybe a kid was riding it, fell down, skinned his knee, and ran home crying to his mom! The angle you shot this at emphasizes it's abandonment.

I was thinking the same thing as Jacob. That bike would never have stayed there that long around here. Bike theft is a big problem in this college town!
