What Makes This a Photo of the Day? Many times what makes a photograph special are the small details that you don’t notice right away. I was first drawn to this photograph by the moment captured—part of the blur of city life. But what I love most are the high-heeled shoes worn by the woman perched on the back of the bicycle. —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor
