Photographer's Note

I heard that the Velib, the self-service bikes which already became a new icon of Paris may disappear from its streets. Apparently there are too many of them stolen and vandalized and the cost to its maintenance became too high. Let's hope this will not happen as tourists and Parisians alike seem to enjoy riding along the nice streets of Paris on those ones. (For more on the subject check http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/europe/article5697094.ece

Its success lead other cities to copy its model and I may expect to see the Velibs on the street of Singapore in the future, fortunately for the government here the chances that they will be vandalized here are far smaller than in Paris...
