263: Family tricycle
The Pampulha region is a popular location for Brazilian and foreign tourists. They come for the architectural monuments, designed by Oscar Niemeyer, the zoo and botanical garden, the football matches in the Mineirão soccer stadium, or just for a leisurely walk or bike ride along the irregularly shaped lake. Like this family who used four interconnected tricycles, a novelty in Belo Horizonte at the time. I was making some pictures of nature along the lake, when the man called me. “Take a picture of us,” he said, much to my surprise. I took this picture, and the family continued their joint tricycle ride, smiling.
