Photographer's Note

It seems that a boy in yellow shirt is slightly disappointed. Maybe he was going to a meeting of Lenins pioneers, which used to be every year on May 19, in the middle of the Freedom Square of Kharkiv. Now the birthday of the All-Union Pioneer Organization is little celebrated, but instead, the Bike Day (this year it was on May 19 too) becomes very popular.

In the picture you see the moment when almost all of roughly 10 thousand cyclists are lifting up their bikes as a traditional greeting on the Bike Days beginning. The cyclist #04 in the foreground is holding his bike most closely to the rules, the saddle being above the wheels. But unfortunately his saddle and bags cover the statue of Lenin, only the head of poor Ilyich being seen above the saddle.
