South Terrace, Fremantle, Australia.
I had permission from the subject and their parent for this photo.
Taken early in a square of sunshine, out the front of Gino’s Cafe. The other shops are still unopened but they will be, after a baby-choc.
An eight year old on a bicycle needs supervision around the city because the bicycle network is not safe enough.
This reduces the opportunity for the child to participate in city life. Conversely, a city with a great pedestrian and bicycle network is giving itself more opportunities for economic development.
Because, as a broader spectrum of ages are independently mobile around the city, activity occurs between more diverse participants, plus in greater quantities.
This positively influences the rate of innovation among people in your city.
