Maybe that's a better image for mid-2000's, when fossil fuels dry up.

But they're motorcycles, aren't they?

I'm trying to imagine how one would frame a genuine photo of the year 2000 (Y2k panic aside) that would make sense to fin-de-siecle Frenchmen, who were just inventing the shopping mall.

How urban would the image be? How would one properly communicate something that we find iconic, like the iPod, to a person who has not yet encounted recorded music? A cellphone for someone who has neither radio nor telephone? 

(Last night I watched part of the new series "Life," in which the main character is a detective who was released after serving 12 years in prison after he was exonerated (and paid off by the city), but he went back to work. He knows a cellphone when he sees one, but doesn't know why someone takes it out when a camera is called for. I hope the writers can keep that sort of thing fresh.

Well, they do have electric bicycles now.
