The parked bike in the first image completes the composition. Very neat.

Nice sharp photos, JM. I think I'd like to ride in that if it didn't go too high! :)

The yellow and white look really sharp.

Interesting and colorful. The only city in the US that has there, that I know of, is Pittsburgh. I suppose the San Francisco cable cars count.

Beautiful shots! And these cars seem so small by the standards of the public vehicles you see today.

Sunny colour! I understand that the Bica funicular was opened in 1892, and it is still operating! Looks like something between a tram and a cable car. Interesting!

I think I've never heard of this district before, it must be an interesting place!
And the funicular is really historic! :)
God bless you!
