Theme: On Two Wheels

“My son-in-law David with his grandson, Luke (my great-grandson). I was taking pictures at the park. David is a Harley guy. They both turned when the motorcycle was going by. If Luke would have had his left arm akimbo, they would have been mirror images.”

– John Nance, Retired, LADWP

John’s comment: All four eyes are fixated on the same object in the distance – the Harley! (And their gaze focuses the reader’s eyes in exactly the same direction.) I’ve felt Harleys thunder by, and clearly they are feeling it, too. Your photo lets me hear it. That’s rare and awesome. Thanks for submitting!

Now if you were Jay Leno and already owned 150-plus motorcycles, why wouldn’t you want or need a life-size chopper that’s made of – wicker? Not entirely sure it’s the fastest two wheels in town, but certainly some of the most unique ones. (Seen at Jay Leno’s Garage in Burbank.)

– Yves Didier, Airport Police

John’s comment: This is a nice shot of a very strange object, Yves! (I’m assuming you don’t ride that thing with the Airport Police!) You can see all the wicker detail clearly in this shot, not that I’ve ever seen a wicker motorcycle before. Thanks for this fun and definitely unusual shot!
