Rikki Don’t Lose That Number

Rikki don’t lose that number

You might use it if you feel better
When you get home

Backstory: Her name is Nikki, not Rikki, apologies for misusing poetic licence…I once owned not one, but two models of the bike she’s riding – an early 70s Honda CB 350. Alas, this one here broke down just as she came driving by, which is why I met her and got the shot. Hope you’re back on the road Nikki! — TAG

Locale: Clifton, Staten Island

Equipment: Nikon D5500 / AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED

Backstory: This is my neighbor Michael. He finds art everywhere, although mostly in Park Slope – in people’s garbage cans. He brings it home and makes sculptures out of it. He also paints. I love it – I’ve featured his art many times, so here is the artist himself. — TAG

Equipment: Nikon D5500 / AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED
