What are they doing? Why do they come here? Some kind of instinct. Memory, of what they used to do. This was an important place in their lives.
the funniest part to me is that he is riding a bike with an umbrella in one hand

All moral quandries aside, those are awesome photos.
I ride with an umbrella.
Goes to show, even the biggest chainguard in the world can't prevent a faceplant.
haYES!Originally Posted by skelly
isn't this about a year old??
Even weirder is that, even after a faceplant, he's still holding the umbrella.Originally Posted by griffin_

I was in Beijing a month ago, and I think I saw about a thousand bikes a day, on the short (2 block) walk from my hotel to the conference venue. It made me wish I had time to borrow a bike and explore the city, some. (A friend convinced a pedicab driver to swap places with him for a few trips.) Despite the large number of motor vehicles, the smog, and the general chaos, it seemed like a great place to ride.Originally Posted by harryhood
They carried anything and everything on their bikes.
I saw quite a lot of people carrying their kids on the back:
Most of the bikes were bomb-proof "Flying Pigeon" single speeds. They looked heavy. I didn't see anyone going very fast, ever. I think I saw one helmet the whole time, out of ten thousand bikes.

Screw that, can you sue in America over "Morals"?
I don't think it's the photographers JOB to warn people about hazards. Sure, the photographer took advantage of a situation. I see dangerous stuff all the time, I don't point it out to everyone I think it could affect.
What about all the other cyclists that hit that same pothole? Did they go and warn people about it? Sue the bastards!
I can understand people being pissed, but I think it's about morals.
Edit: Oh, sorry. "criticised". Yeah, I see no problem with criticizing it. But I also don't think the photographer did anything wrong.
I would have a hard time not beating him to death with his camera once I woke up if that was me on the bike.
