You couldn't help but think this child's bike hung on a chain-link fence resembles Elliot's Bike from the movie ET.

Not Elliot's Bike. Nikon D300 with 60mm Lensbaby Twist (90mm equivalent) at f2.5, 1/2000 second and ISO 200. Processed in Adobe Camera Raw.

It's not, of course.

We'd seen it a few days before propped up against the back fence of a building being renovated. We wondered if it had been left behind by the previous owners and the construction crew had decided to make a gift of it.

Hanging it up the fence at a prominent intersection seemed to suggest that was the case.

But it hung there for days.

Maybe it seemed like some form of public art that should not be toyed with.

In which case, taking a photo of it and turning it into some form of public art seemed the appropriate thing to do.

We already have a bike at home, anyway.
