Mike Bloomberg Contemplates Motorcycle
This is something of a still life, but with people! Yesterday, our inscrutable Mayor Bloomberg was down at the World Trade Center, where a really fancy (and big!) motorcycle designed by Paul Teutul Jr. of American Chopper fame was unveiled as a tribute to the reconstruction of the World Trade Center. In January another bike, presumably similar and valued at $50,000, will be raffled off at $50 a ticket to benefit the museum. But also, this photo is kind of great. Composition-wise and such.

Here's a closer look:
That's not happiness to see me is it?
Also good: The New York Post has a shot of Bloomberg, actually on the bike. Whee!
