On Display

This bike - parked at the base of the staircase leading up to the walking path under the Brooklyn Bridge - is covered in a colorful kind of crochet. It must have taken hours to get the shapes right because it appears to be a custom fit. The bike sits there day after day and no one touches it because it's art and you don't mess with art. The white lights that look like they're shooting out of the seat and handlebars are actually a lighting sculpture on the ceiling of the overpass. This is a time exposure - no flash was used - of 8 seconds on aperture-priority with the camera sitting on the ground.
