Wright’s image, Gawking Biker, was taken in Ravenna, Italy. He says: I was walking at sunset and noticed this wonderful graffitied corner that was not in the shadows and photographed it. I had to wait for a while until no bicycles were whizzing by. As I stood watching multiple bikers go by, I thought it would be interesting to capture a single biker heading in the direction of the mural who did not obscure, but rather might add to, the impact of the mural. I succeeded in capturing this image with my Olympus SZ-14 cheap point and shoot camera, at 1/13 sec at f 3.4, ISO 200, 6mm.
The color version of this image was awarded first place in the PACC special category, Humor, in the April 2020 monthly competition.
