Little Bobby was never seen again...

It's funny the emotions that a photograph can bring to the surface in different people. When I first stumbled upon these bikes it was definitely the emotions of fear and dread. I did allow myself to fancy that possibly these did belong to kids who had gone off on an adventure, but the image screamed tragedy and so I posted it under the "Little Bobby was never seen again" title.
It could just as easily been "Little Bobby off on an adventure..." but to me that wouldn't work.
In reality these bikes are probably all stolen from neighboring houses, and dumped along the tracks when the tires go flat.
Anyway, you never know what you will find out shooting.
