In these days in Milan a new free sistem of transport is goin on. Some boys drive these special bikes named "tucano urbano" (urban toucan) and if you want you can go on them without paying an euro. You can go from San Babila square till Sforzesco castle crossing Duomo square, the centre of Milan. Nothing new under the sun: people of East Asia know it very well.

An old way to get around but in a new place and in very sleek looking modern contraptions. I like how you got these two lined up here. It seems more like a mirror than two of them. The two in the back seem to be enjoying the ride and perhaps are calling their friends to say they are in one. The capture of just a little space at the front and the active passengers adds a lot of dynamism to the photo. Looks like it would be a fun little trip on one of these.

Very unique, like the note too. Looks abit like the bill of a Tucan too. Just a wee bit too close cropping, it think a bit of breathing spave in fron, and not cutting off the back would have given you more impact.
