I struggled with this photo for quite a while. I loved the curve and shape of the bike, (1) the fact that the handlebars have tassels, (2) the fact that both tires are too flat to ride, (3) the battered old seat (4). All of these things were great but the bike was a mottled rusty dark green against an orange brick wall and it just didn’t have the punch that I felt the image needed. Recently I have gone back through some of my images with the intent of reevaluating my images with a B&W treatment in mind. I liked it much better this time around. I really wish I had taken the time to move the potted tree outside of the frame.
