On the bike...a canvas bag containing a laptop computer, two books, a notebook, a journal, a cell phone, and a camera (amongst other items).
I've photographed my bike at this location before. It's a vacant building (obviously) and it's colors and structure make for a nice backdrop (I think). The steel door behind the bike is loaded with graffiti, and like most graffiti I never really look at it but for some reason today I did. The one that caught my eye is below. Barely visible in the above picture, it is located at the lower left portion of the door just above where the rear rack of the bike is shown. Anyhow, I thought this was great...something positive. I hope whoever is the author not only showed this to her/his mom but tells it to her as well. Something tells me they have :)
