A Guy and his Bike

I first noticed the bike and asked the guy who was standing 4-5 feet away from it if it was his or not.  He said yes and I asked if I could take a picture of it.  He nonchalantly said to go ahead, but I could tell he was pretty proud of his ride and happy I noticed it.  Then I asked if he wouldn’t mind if I took a picture of both him and his bike, and again he complied, a little more hesitant this time.  I was in a hurry, as the rest of my party continued to walk ahead of me, so I took the shot quickly, with little time to compose.  I decided to put the focus on the bike by grey scaling the entire image except the bike. The reason? The rest of the image was too loud: his pants were a camo-red and yellow, shoes bright blue, busy-coloured brick wall, and I accidently composed a big, bright red $6 sticker behind his head!
