Reflections Of Amsterdam - SHARP

Unedited mobile phone cam shot of 2 bald guys on a Scooter looking at me, reflected in a puddle in Amsterdam. No editing, no magic tricks, no Photoshop :)

These dudes look like Skinheads, but considering they are on a scooter, they might be SHARPs, Skinheads Against Racial Prejudice, or some Ska-loving Rude Boys, or maybe not :)

One thing is for sure though, they're bald and they're obviously lazy or they would be on their bikes and not on a scooter, hehe...I used to have this oooold Vespa from the late 60s that never really worked properly, I bought it from a friend without an engine, got a motor from somebody else and build it in, unfortunately I was working on the lovely old thing with a friend one day, while emptying a crate of beer (not a good idea!), and I pulled out a cable that was essential to making it work and impossible to get back into it's original location...I even brought the scooter to a repair shop and they couldn't fix it, so I carried it upstairs into my living room where it stayed for a couple of years as decoration until I moved several times, getting less and less interested in carrying it up&down the stairs with all my other shizzle and eventually it was stolen from a friends garage where I stored it...that's life, who knows if I was such a dedicated bike-rider today if I'd ever managed to make that baby roll :D
