Street shots I didn't remember

Here, some recently "discovered" street shots in Chicago (with a metered Leica body and probably my Elmarit 28mm f2.8), on Agfa APX ISO 400 film.

A lost bicycle ring, still attached to a rack, looking like a distant memory of something that was, and is no longer...

Drummer kids on Michigan Avenue. They animate the streets for the pedestrians, but drive bonkers those who live in the (expensive) condos nearby.

For some reason, the juxtaposition of the bike and the "Vote" sign made me chuckle, probably because I think there's some meaning in their random encounter.

Is there? Is that what street photography is all about? Meaning? Stories that await to be told? The so-called "decisive moment"? Or isn't it just images of the street, records of an era gone by?

You vote, So long... still waiting for that Leica M5 body!
