Aujourd'hui, le vélo

Ah, le vélo...we miss you. The photo by The Sartorialist, 29 Jan. 2007, is one of his favorites. The bike might be an Automoto, very like GG's editor's battered old one in Strasbourg. The woman's self-possession & style? Not for sale. We cringe at those who slavishly try to replicate other people's is so not the point. It's mannered, inauthentic, & awkward. Inspiration, that's one thing...copying is so...comment dit-on? Icky. Ah, oui...eee-kee.
