on display, whether you want to see it or not!

hehe … that’s what most people say!
I wish I could like this at least six times. I love the person with the half shirt…. don’t want to show too much, I guess!
Hi Anne … and thanks for stopping by. Glad you like the pic.
I know! Wassup with the half shirt??? Perhaps to prevent painful sunburn on the upper back and shoulders?
I suppose if you’re trying to prevent sunburn on your tender bits and pieces, that’s the place to do it! Tee hee!
That’s San Francisco for you! Hilarious!
hehe!!! this city wears its kooky heart right on its sleeve!
You know how to position your camera for the right picture 🙂 I would have never thought to do this (take a picture and ride nude). Thank you for sharing 😉
Hi Dana … it was important to stay discreet, and not go for the obvious. You can show a lot without showing much.
hehe … DOH!!!

Awesome take on the theme On Display! Love it!
Thanks Pam. Glad you enjoyed this little bit of San Francisco absurdity!
Well, I never expected that! Thanks for making me smile, and for shooting at a discreet angle 🙂
Hi Julie … and thanks for stopping by! Glad my goofy shot provided a chuckle. Discretion was a must because, really, who wants to see all that?
Yes, you did seem to get a shot from a very discreet angle, as your previous commenter noticed. I was thinking of taking a vacation somewhere soon, after my fall graduation, now where, I wonder, would be a good place to go to view the sights….?
Hey Victoria … you had best hurry. The public nudity thing as become a big issue here in SF (there are no rules against nudity here in the city), and it’s more than likely anti-nudity ordinances will be approved of and enacted in the near future.
You get the top prize for interpretation of the theme of “On Display”. This is hilarious. Thank you for making my week – this image is worth saving.
Hehe … my pleasure, Pat!!! I makes me really happy to know that my pic made you so happy. Feel free to download and use as you like!
You’ll never run of inspiration for odd posts living over there ;). 😀
Hey Paula … it’s one of the perks of living here, and, as you have seen, I take full advantage of it!
Yes, you do :D… and I am glad! 🙂
hahahaha, you gotta be kidding me!!!!
hehe! no kidding, ioanna … the proof is right there … in the flesh!!!
So… where’s the Display? =oP I once saw a poster of this in Berlin. And now in San Francisco?! Haha! I love it!
hey judy … well, I had to keep things PG! we see this kind of thing all the time in SF. I can see where Berlin would be into it too, although I’ve never been. glad you like it!
OH MY DEAR!
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
hehe … what the heck is going on here?
Oh my !! Don’t you just love their complete ease with this and themselves.
Hi Jo … yes, I’m a little envious of their complete lack of self-consciousness. I imagine it can be kind of liberating.
Funny, though. The end of the ride was about a block away, and as soon as it was over half of the riders immediately put pants on. How is being naked on a bike different than being naked off of one? I don’t know!
That is kind of funny !!!
Very clever helmet, handle and frame positioning! Such a great response to Ailsa’s travel challenge. ~ Kat
Hi Kat, and thanks for visiting! I rattled off a bunch of consecutive shots as this group wheeled by, and this was the only one that could be described as PG. The rest are better left to the imagination (hmmm, maybe not).
Oh my! Nevertheless, Clever shot! You know what i mean 😀
Hi Hero, and thanks for visting! I think I know what you mean … nudge, nudge, wink, wink!
Very good. Made me laugh
Hi Suzanne! Glad my goofy pic gave you a chuckle! Oh, and thanks for dropping by too!
You’re right – only in San Francisco! Absolutely fabulous 🙂
hehe … thanks Wanderlust Gene! Yep, only in SF … for better or worse!
Love it! I have never been to San Francisco! It sort of reminds me of Key West, and I love Key West!
Hi Judy! I’ve never been to Key West, so I’ll have to take your word for that!
Great ! 😀
Thanks Max … appreciate that!
LOL! Awesome! Great shot & PERFECT for the theme!
Hi Tahira … glad you liked it! Thanks for dropping by too!
Composition is just right to stay discreet, although dude on the far left stands out a bit, haha.
haha … oh! he snuck one by us! glad you liked this one! thanks for dropping by.
I find this hilarious!
hehe … cool! glad you got a chuckle! and thanks for stopping by!

San Fran Nude bike ride photo
Hi there … thanks for the reblog!
We love public nudity, it makes one feel so free and simple nudity should not be so shocking to anyone. It is one of the most honest things a person can do, after all you have nothing to hide and your certainly haven’t dressed to be something you really aren’t like most in modern day society. By the way, nice pic with an edited style angle 🙂
hi there … and thanks for dropping by and commenting. yah, in arranging this shot i wanted to show some discretion. i like that they all look they’re having fun!
Your shot didn’t show everything so it worked. 😉
yep … sometimes it’s better to leave things for the imagination.
Absolutely love it Stepehen! Agree with the others about the expertly framed shot 😀
Thanks, Madhu. I find it’s always much better to leave something to the imagination.
