I am out of town the rest of the week in Salt Lake City for a conference so I may not respond to comments for a bit.

Nice candid shot, just the very topic I blogged about most recently. I like how the guys are looking in different directions, can't decide if one of them is looking at you or just past you, I7d be interested to know you you got this shot, did you have the camera up at your face or were you holding it at waist level. I'm guessing with the 90mm lens you would be having to use the viewfinder to frame the shot. Very nice indeed.

Wonderful!

Look at that solid hardware and, especially, the hand modified/repaired pedals.

I like the tones!

Old bike... are there a lot over there, like in China?
Lovely shot Charles. I pity these rickshaw pullers for all they have to go through to earn a living and I hate people who bargain with them for a few pennies. sad

Nice composition.

Amazing !!
Stunning colors ! Nicely composed and captured ! Love the ambiance and the spontaneous expressions of the men ! Great shot !!
Beautiful capture.
That bike has seen some years!
this is great Charles, love the wooden pedals, its a snap shot in thier day to day life
I like composition and colors.
I love the facial expression! If I tried to sit like that for very long my legs would be screaming. My sense of perspective was thrown way off by the bike wheel being to the left of the cart; my mind kept saying it was cut in half by the cart.
Great expression, his saddle looks a tad uncomfortablesmile
