The cyclo, a pedal-powered trishaw, is a popular form of transportation in Yangoon and in cities and towns across Myanmar.
Considering the level of pollution is these urban environment, it is a taxing job, not even considering the difficult physical effort and the danger that these guys are facing, constantly weaving through traffic.
Although rickshaws and trickshaws are parts of the scenery and exoticism of Southeast Asia and India, they are nevertheless a daily life reality that seems unbearable and unacceptable for human to perform, yet, we see this mode of transport becoming extremely popular in Europe and America, in touristic areas...

On retrouve toujours ce soin apporté dans la composition de tes scènes de vie et ce souci d'harmoniser les tons d'image. Une photo de haut niveau!
Bonne année 2014 à toi et tes proches.

A fine well presented daily life composition. The man's pose and expression along with the cycle tells the story of his hard life. I especially like the lighting and the rendering of the textural detail.

Encore un beau portrait avec ce qui commence à devenir un peu une signature: une lumière douce, des couleurs bien présentes (le beau turquoise sur les volets et la touche de rouge sur le guidon du vélo), et l'attitude naturelle et participative du sujet.
Un beau post pour démarrer la saison 2014,

what striked me first when I saw this photo were the colors - although little bit muted they are in lovely harmony. I also like the whole scene and the way it has been composed. It looks very natural.
Good light management and sharpness.

Such a great daily life shot. One that is both exotic to Westerners as well as a heart breaking portrait of struggling life in many part of the poorer Asian Countries. Thailand and some other has gone on to use motor like Tuktuk and Motorcycles. Yet many part like in Burma, Laos, Cambodia, smaller town in China maybe still using this type of man power to transport people around. An exhausting job for very little pay in return. Being from Laos, I've seen it and know what it takes. It sometimes make me wonder what if I were to still be in Laos, what my life may have been like. Something I occasionally ponder upon. Most of the time I felt fortunate to be here, except when the pressure of deadlines and busy life in the city gets me down and tire. I just want ride on a water buffalo and not worry about answering e-mails and people want this and that right here and now.
With all that said, this is an excellent shot, and I can even feel and see the expression on his face that is tire but still a timid little smile out of the corner of his lips.

J'aime beaucoup le rendu des teintes de cette image,ici la partie bleue du chapeau de cet homme est à l’unisson avec le bleu de cette fenêtre fermée.Le cycle donne la bonne touche à cette composition soignée.
