I guess there will be allot of not so happy people, seeing this picture (our guide thought they are on the way to a special restaurant).
I donít like it much either, but it is just incredible what people carry on the bike in Vietnam. This was taken out of the car window on the highway.
I am curios what sort of reaction I get on this.
Cheers and thanks for looking.
I messed up. #3 is the same as 1.

Very good documentary record. I wonder if they can get a horse on those bikes - could be Europe then! A pity you didn't get the whole bike in on V1, but you did what you needed and showed the subject in a reportage manner. Send them to a daily paper, it's a topical subject at the moment.

Really good captures. These are interesting images here in the Western developed world. Just what can be loaded on a bike?
Photos are are a little dull but content make up for that.
Are these images for you own record or are you working on a project?

Ian

As a dog lover very disturbing photo but that is what photography is all about, the world is not all beautiful beaches or gorgeous sunsets.
As for the photo I feel you need to focus on the Bike & Dogs by chopping out the rest, most of it is just unwanted and messy.
Maybe try B&W??
Regards.
Mike.

Decent record shots. Dont know why you uploaded V1 twice (V3 is the same)

Both can do with a bit of sharpening, and contrast, so uploaded 2 mods.


Regards

This reminds me too much of a film secretly taken by PETA I saw, about them skinning dogs alive in China. Still gives me nightmares 3 years after I watched it! SadSad

Thanks for all your comments!
I know the photos are not 100% focused, but they where taken out of a taxi, it was raining outside and I had to quickly open the window to get the shot as we are driving passed.
I only uploaded them to see what people think about them and pretty much got the reaction I was expecting.

As for your questions, no I am not doing a project. I was just astounded what you see on bikes over there and wanted to share that with you.
There is plenty of more unbelievable thinks on bikes, but I didn't manage to get a shot all the time.
Willie, thanks for your mods. I really like them! V3 upload was a mistake and I didn't want to mess things up in trying to remove it.
Again, thanks for your comments.
Cheers Norbert
Wink
