I never saw them afterward and I had never seen them before. It was only one quick moment on my usual way home.
As I was walking down the street I heard a strange noise disturbing the usual “soundtrack” of a busy street. That was the sound of music approaching. Suddenly these guys on a motorbike appeared out of nowhere playing something upbeat and funky.

I know this is the point of weekly challenges: they leave interpretation to you, and that’s why it was quite a challenge for me to pick up suitable photos. Well, this is what it’s all about, a challenge, right? And it is fun. Also:
