Pedaling to breakfast, McCloud. California, 2008

In this image, we begin on the outside and finish on the inside, moving through a series of photographic layers in the process. The bicycle is the key to this picture it symbolizes a small town, where people often pedal to breakfast. It is a town built on trust as well there are no locks bolting the bike to the post. The bike is painted in vivid primary colors, creating a focal point for the entire image. The restaurant, with its old barrel and peeling paint, offers context. Finally, we travel to a third layer, the interior of the restaurant itself. We see diners, deep in shadow, and a waitress waiting to take orders. The yellow light fixtures running deep within the restaurant replicate the color of the bike, bringing us full circle.
