The photo is by a famous Photographer Ed Yordon. I don't remember exactly what he wrote about this photo but it was along the lines of "the girl, who was passing by, just could not resist touching that bike".

As per your question of who selects the pictures for the contests - usually it's one of the admins. We welcome all suggestions too. Sometimes our members even send photos they took for consideration too. If they look "choppable" and interesting enough, we use them in our Friday contests.

At the moment there hasn't been many chops submitted. Usually you can see when a source photo is a hit, by many submissions in the first hours of a contest. Such was the case with a rocking chair photo, for instance.
