On 9-11-2013 I was walking towards the Staten Island Ferry and this biker came riding towards me. I noticed the american flag and knew I had to step into the street and capture this image.
What I did not realize was he would slow down, and give me the thumbs up. I wish I knew who he was to send him an image, but this is who we are. We are people who pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and get better. Ride on my friend, ride on.
