11 - Memento Mori

#19 Bikes (Redux)

Williamsburg is a biker’s paradise. Bike paths are clearly marked out here, and allow one to go for delightful rides down to Greenpoint for brunch and such on weekends.

Here are five views of bikes, in an array of colours. The featured one, however, belies a more eerie story: it is a memento mori, commemorating the fact that a biker was run down and killed here, by a car.

1 – Green and Yellow

2 – Rider

3 – Snowy White
