Strong abstract forms in the background buildings providing a great counterpoint to the cyclist.

Very industrial. With all the geometric shapes, why I get a feel of stillness, like a period of time frozen, leaving much for the viewer to ponder.

The buildings have individuality, character, but the cyclist seems a bit anonymous. Like the illuminated yellow of the tyres.

Thank you delph, Lake and Mac! Much appreciated. I was taking a picture of the buildings when this cyclist pedaled into the frame.

Very interesting picture, this.
And I really like the fact that the cyclist pedalled into the scene just like that: serendipity on yellow wheels!
