Stripped Bare

I don’t know what to make of this. Just inside the Vermont Street Bridge, still on the University Heights side, I saw a wayward bicycle frame—early afternoon Oct. 15, 2021. Bike chop shops pop up in around the San Diego neighborhood and across the way in adjacent Hillcrest. Thieves work them, and I wonder if the thing, placed on the outside railing, waited to be picked up. For context: Below to right you see the entrance ramp to highway 163.
