BICYCLES The postman's bike

I have been photographing many bicycles lately. They steal my attention, especially if they are old looking and black or if the setting is interesting. 
I have long been thinking about starting a series starring this fantastic mean of transport and why not doing it today with this nice shot!
I took just this morning in the sunny Piazza dei Signori. The postman had just arrived and gone into the restaurant with a handful of mail to deliver. I quickly shot and soon he was back to ride his yellow Poste Italiane bike...

I'd like to see more bicycles in Manila, but I think there's little chance of that.

Well captured.

What a cute bicycle. Hard to believe that your mail carriers actually ride bikes. I think there are many places in Ocala where that would be feasible and think how much money it would save and how much better it would be for the environment!

Great idea for the postal workers to use bicycles to deliver mail. I don't think that would happen in the US. A series on bicycles sounds like an interesting idea.

Che forte, non ne avevo mai vista una prima! Qui da noi come sai sono rosse con la scritta Royal Mail. Ciao. A.

That must make life as a postman in Verona quite enjoyable (except when it rains!)

Oh, the color of that bike is like a zest of lemon.

Our mailman walk around the neighborhood to deliver mail. But that is because NYC is so tightly packed.

If I had a bicycle, I would want to have a bag like that on the back of it.
