‘Public’ transport

DSC_0137 copyBicycles always make a great picture but when it’s so many lined up in one place, the photograph becomes quite striking. This row of the so called common man’s transport is pictured next to the Bahrain Financial Harbour twin towers in Central Manama. I was told the cycles belong to the scores of mainly Asian expatriates who throng the nearby Bab Al Bahrain area to make some money cleaning cars, running sundry errands or working part-time as houseboys.
