Simplicity and Complexity

My Bike and Big John

My Bike and Big John

The bicycle is a simple machine. My single speed eschews the gears on many modern bicycles so it embodies simplicity. In the background are massive buildings including Big John, the John Hancock building. These machines are incredibly complex. There are untold thousands of moving components to ensure the health and safety and convenience of it’s occupants. I find them both to be marvels of human engineering.
