Ghosts of New York

New York is inhabited by ghosts; even the Empire State Building looks like an ephemeral spirit in the fog and the light. All over the city, people have chained bicycles painted completely white...tires, spokes, handlebars, everything... Ghost Bikes, they call them. Each is inscribed with the name and story of the biker who was killed on his bike at that location. There's a lot of them, which is somewhat sobering. None of my pictures of them came out.
