Rickshaw

Rickshaws are a common means of human-powered transportation in Kolkata and around India generally. Some are hand pulled, others are cycle-rickshaws like this one, and still others are the popular auto-rickshaw. I was surprised by how colorful they were, with each one bearing its own unique configuration, patterns, and decorations.

So wonderfully colorful and detailed!
Very nicely captured Charles. The colours are superb!
It looks to have had a lot of use, Great colours.
Nicely taken Charles..Great detail.Thats the first close-up I've seen of a rickshaw.
A very interesting shot Charles. Good, tight composition
I bet this one has a lot of miles under its wheels Charles, but it is quite colourful.

Fine shot, Charles, and I like your high contrast treatment.

You might like to compare with this one of mine [ http://www.all-my-world.com/picture%20blog1/pblog/index.php?entry=entry061005-034907 ], or possibly this one [ http://www.all-my-world.com/images/200601I%20surin%20064a.jpg ] where I get in on the act.
Those are some amazing colors!
