We Interrupt Our Regularly Scheduled Broadcasting Due To . . . HOLY BLEEP!!!

St. Louis Motorcycle Cops

I got an email yesterday from the Museum of Modern Art in New York (MoMA! MOMA!) asking if they could use this image in a photography exhibition this fall and winter called Is Fashion Modern? Podunk me, in the temple. I think they like the black leather motorcycle jackets. Yet I may swoon.

This was taken at St. Louis' 2008 St. Patrick's Day parade and I sure hope I can find the original. My archive system is pretty sloppy and I'm not sure it's still on a drive somewhere. OMG I hope it is. If I can dig it up we may all have to get together for a party later in the year in my home hood.

UPDATE: I'm still searching through old external hard drives and have not yet found the hi res version of this photo. However, I found the original raw file, which I can re-edit. Looks like a go.

Congratulations, It's a great image, the attention well deserved!
Keeping my fingers crossed until you find the original file. I can sing a song or two of files who performed a disappearing act.

WOW!! Congrats from Italy, unfortunately a little bit far from the MoMA cause it seems it will be a really interesting exhibition, within which your shot will catch the eye, that's sure.
You may be happy for that, I share your joy.
Bravo Bob!

MOMA, WOW! I'm SOOOO impressed.
Congratulations, Bob.
Glad you were able to find the RAW file if not the edited image. I hope not too much editing was involved and you can bring it back to its current form.

Now the next question is, how did they find your photo?
