Great holmertz 2020-02-23 8:22

Hello Brenda,
The red and white chimney in the street is funny (for people not living in NYC) and eye-catching, and it's a kind of cultural signal. And yet the photo would have been rather less interesting without the red bicyclist. I wonder if you saw him from a distance and knew that you had to include him, or if you were patiently waiting for someone/something with matching colors to turn up. This kind of "coincidence" (which it isn't) usually signifies the trained eyes of a real street photographer.;-)
Best regards,

Default To holmertz: The cyclist

Hello Gert,

Yes, I stood in that spot for a while, snapping different vehicles as they went by. When I saw this cyclist approaching I thought he would be the perfect compliment to the chimney. Thankfully I captured him at just the right spot.

Have a good evening!
