these people always fascinate me. village people carrying immense load on their cycles with perfect balance. and the road is a national highway.

maglex (1980) 2008-02-01 7:44
Haha, great shot Indrajit!

Thanks for sharing...

Fantastic snapshot. What portrait.... good close up... I like a lot. Beautiful light and colours. Very good job
Buin (42362) 2008-02-01 7:46
A amazing view - and for European eyes an a bit funny one. Policemen here would get a lot of money discovering this heavy load ;-)
A wonderful daily life picture!
Greetings from Germany!

Hello indrajit. Titles and photo fit in the best way. I am astonished again and again, which can be transported loads on bicycles. A worth seein photo, - also for TE. Best regards, Wolfgang.
atlantida (2323) 2008-02-01 8:37
Just as Buin said, a little funny for European eyes, but I dont think this guys feel like laughing...I can't imagine how people live differently than us in some other parts of the world, that's an extremely hard life. Thanks for showing us "the other side of life".

Like you I`m fascinated by those scenes.I just returned from Asia and have seen many unique ways of transportation.Bicycles and mopeds with loads of vegetable,living animals,furnitures......
You captured this perfect,the light,the arrangement of these three,the colors and the sharpness.
A great shot.

well captured moment and very interesting daily life shot.
Royaldevon (33387) 2008-02-01 12:08
No wonder you are fascinated, so am I!
I cannot imagine how these men maintain their balance!
This is an excellent shot and a social document recording practices that have occured for many years unchanged!
Very good detailed images, beautiful colours and nicely composed!
Many thanks for your warm feedback on 'Lancashire Moors'.

Balwant (588) 2008-02-01 15:26
Great shot set brown sacks against the background of banana plants. These guys must be skillful to carry such a load and balance it with confidence. Great!
rajju (1345) 2008-02-01 18:41
very interesting shot.. they must have a real balance while cycling.. great capture..
partha (14020) 2008-02-01 21:43
Excellently spotted. Only I dont like much of the merging of the second cyclist.
A little bi delay may help to get the perfect shot.
pcp (3394) 2008-02-01 22:27
Great shot and nicely took a control over by this cycles :) I agree with partha but should not forget about your wonderful efforts here... wonderful shot. well done.
nirajsinha (857) 2008-02-01 22:54
I like to catch daily life scene of rural India. This one is really great. The load and balance is well composed, PoV is good.

jhm (144318) 2008-02-02 0:37
Incredible what this man do with his bike, this is splendid for look it but maybe a specialist job.
Composition and presentation are very nice, I like it.
Thanks for sharing.
Have a nice sunday,
gilou530 (34) 2008-02-02 5:45
impressionnant les sacs sur ces vélos bel équilibre, une photo intéressante mais qui manque d'un peur de netteté
ilvao (2306) 2008-02-02 10:38
as a cyclist i am very impressed by those men
thanks a lot to show us the reality of your country
spectacular shot with these men at work
all the best
smarcell (19963) 2008-02-03 12:23
Funny and interesting shot ! Really a game of balance and equilibrium !
siolaw (38292) 2008-02-03 20:09
That is very spectacular... i never saw that in our area! such a pile of sacks.. very impressive as a scene and the picture is also technically correct...
Keep it up!
axiotea (21649) 2008-02-03 20:39
They are fascinating me too! What an incredible balance!
Excellent and interesting capture of these three cyclists, who seem to have noticed you...Pleasant light and good framing.
Wanda1 (15000) 2008-02-03 21:42
It is incredible how they can carry such a heavy load on their bicycles and still keep balance. The shot is nicely composed and there is a nice light. The guy in front must be really strong.
marine-coeur (770) 2008-02-04 7:13
Amazing people,excellent message, well done indrajit.
ribeiroantonio (22637) 2008-02-04 14:14
I went through your gallery I found that you have a very nice work. I choose this one because of the unusual amount of bags they carry on the bikes. It made me laugh. Do you know what were they carrying? Well done.
devimeuxbe (58557) 2008-02-05 0:32
ah ah ah, incredible. really incredible.
This is a very good capture. So funny
alainh (35583) 2008-02-05 14:11
always a true pleasure to come back in your gallery and discover a new picture. this one is astonshing and well realised.
have a nice evening Indrajit
Angshu (56592) 2008-02-05 19:55
A very good shot, but could have been better if you waited a couple of seconds more to have all three riders distinct without overlapping. But a very good daily life shot for sure...the load should not me that much if they're carrying Muri.
riclopes (35577) 2008-02-06 7:35
Olá Indrajit, what an incredible situation that you captured here. For my western experience this seems like a funny contest and the first one is cleary winning. But of course it's not the case, but only the conditions of a hard daily life scene. What's inside the bags must be extremely light or they wouldn't be able to cycle. Very well seen and capture.
laroze (965) 2008-02-06 7:46
Very amazing shot.Good colors and light.A good shot of the daily life.
Have a nice day
rodgerg (55767) 2008-02-06 9:15
Superb photo, framing, light, composition and especialithy subject there. How do they make to keep equilibrium on their bikes ? Really of nice job.
faubry (35405) 2008-02-07 1:00
wonderful picture from India,astonishing shot with bicycle, very hard life,, we have luck... soon
AROBN54 (11473) 2008-02-07 6:10
Good morning, Indrajit,
what an amazing capture! What an amazing scene. I am astonished they are able to balance and carry so many bags with them on bicycles. Very nice light and color and a WONDERFUL daily life shot for learning about the world. This is just incredible. (I just wonder how they get them off the bikes) Well done!! Many thanks and warm regards,
RADEEH (2802) 2008-02-07 7:11
A very interesting shot of village life.The PoV gives us a feel of the movement and skill of those cyclist in carrying such volume of loads.Brilliant capature !! TFS !!
debrajchatterje (6) 2008-02-08 2:40
ha ha! such a common scene! we always overlook the beauty of thus daily-life scene. you have done well capturing it. no wonder why this one has got so many points
sayanwithsenice (758) 2008-02-09 10:37
Great to see this! lovely observations!! Nice idea for this. You have framed it well too. Actually you have captured the typical seen of the vegetable sellers. Quite inovative.
scobert (5355) 2008-02-10 13:41
This is a fascinating photograph and an outstanding example of the Trek Earth theme of learning about travel through photography. How on earth do these resourceful men do this amazing acrobatic feat?! There are enough goods here to fill up a midsized delivery truck! This is a great photograph which displays the amazing will and resourcefulness of these men. Incredible!
marietom (34609) 2008-02-11 3:04
C'est fou, on se demande comme tout cela peut tenir ! Superbe image.
romanaa (7984) 2008-02-20 10:20
this is unbelievable. I once had a big load on the back wheel of my bike and when I needed to overcome any bump on the road it behaved like a runaway horse - the front wheel in the air. Great daily life scene.
noborders (1010) 2008-02-25 5:42
Those guys could be actors in a circus, what are they carrying in those bags, is it very heavy ? I wonder, really !
Great and amazing shot,
efi (5219) 2008-02-28 7:25
nice to meet you.a very interesting shot.sharp and colorful.longer man longer load :) .tfs.
gurpreet (35) 2008-03-24 9:48
you need to have photographer's eye for turning such simple subjects into beautiful pictures...wel done. i just luv it.
pawelx (11) 2009-01-26 6:16
You've captured the moment great; a little blur spoils the photo slightly (is it because you've cropped this out of a much larger photo and digitally magnified?). Anyway, it's a great shot. I was always looking to take something similar on my trips to India, but never quite managed it as well as you.
fritzi007 (8709) 2012-10-30 8:07
an incredible transportation, really seeing, congratulations!
