Which way to the circus?

Urban miniature cyclist
Toronto, ON
August 2013
Thematic. Strangers in our midst. Here.
I don't even know how this thing didn't collapse under his weight. Or how he managed to transfer any power to the pedals given how little room he had for his adult-sized legs.

But here's the thing: he was out there, using two human-powered wheels instead of four internal combustion-powered ones. He seemed to be enjoying himself, and, most important of all, he made pretty much every urban-downtown-drone around him smile whenever they looked his way.

A smile always makes it worthwhile, doesn't it?

Love it. And it looks like that one guy standing by the bicycle noticed you capturing the moment.
