    riding through dupont circle saturday i came across a biking event. these bikers were assembled to pay tribute to a fellow biker killed a month ago while working. the bikers are couriers, they deliver documents/packages quickly throughout the streets of dc...routinely finding themselves in harms way. i learned a lot about them and the guy who died through conversation. if you know me, you'll know i have no problem shooting strangers, but because of the circumstances involved and the trust these people put in me by allowing close access, i chose not to shoot many faces; one didn't mind.

    here's a pic of Rico:

    they didn't want to move...it was cold as crap and 4 p.m. with a 2 hour ride ahead of them

    Nice set. The second one is my favorite... the bicycle looks lonely to me, like the empty benches.

    2, 1 and the group shot gets my vote! :)
