the first time i heard the word "scraper" was in the spring of 2007, when i was a juror on a murder trial. the kinda creepy district attorney on the case attempted to give a definition of the term "scraper" to the pretty (square) jury. i somehow knew something was lost in translation, so i consulted urban dictionary that night, probably against court protocol.
since then, i started noticing scrapers ALL the time... especially once i moved from lake merritt to allendale, and now to eastmont.
I LOVE THEM! i know i am a super white girl from the midwest with about zero street cred - but i think the rims and colorful cars are so damn cool!!
thus, i am beginning a new photo series... I AM SPECIALIZED
here are the first two shots from my ride yesterday.
note: the photo series is a BIKE with a scraper, not just a scraper on its own. anybody can take a picture of a car. join the fun if you can- get a picture of your bike with some sweet scraper. ....and sorry if you live in the peninsula or marin....or colorado or oregon, etc, etc.... a prius or subaru doesn't count.
