I'm not normally a Harley girl, myself, but this hog parked at the curb was just too much gleam and sheen and high contrast for me to pass by without stopping and taking the lens cover off my camera. ;-)

The telephoto adds an interesting flattened effect [or were you chicken : ] best...jerry

@ordinaryimages: Yes, I was actually walking over to the street fair with my telephoto lens to sneak some pictures of people, when I saw the Harley. Hate to admit it, but I was just too rushed and too lazy to change my lens. :-)
