I really liked the colors and angles and shadows in this scene when I first spotted them while walking along Carroll Creek.  But what really made me want to stop and take a photo was that one round spot of sweet light on the brick promenade.  It was then just a matter of waiting a bit for someone to enter my frame.

And that someone was this bicyclist.  I made exactly three exposures of him and the first had him in the best position.  His bike has not yet entered the shadow and his black shirt shows nicely against the grey concrete wall behind him.  Done and done…
