actually, this poor neglected little bicycle is the standard one-seater type...but in honor of this past weekend and all the participants in the MS 150, i think it's appropriate. i pass this bicycle on my way home time and again. it's one of those things that you see but take for granted because you file it away in the "everyday boring" category. the other day i walked by and thought, "self, maybe you should take a picture of this normal boring everyday object and see if it looks better when a camera looks at it." and then, like magic...the bike had a little character and a big helping of retro style. that's the thing with cameras - they have this habit of adding a little bit of extra special to everything you point them at.
