This is India Street in Little Italy – where we live. This is what it looked like this morning at 7:10 a.m. as an estimated 2,000 bike riders waited to start a race. You can see the starting line near the top of the image. The view is from the fourth floor of our building.
The second shot, looking straight down, is riders at the back of the pack working their way up to the starting line several minutes after the leaders took off. I deliberately shot at a slow shutter speed to create the motion blur.
