I was sitting on a 4th floor restaurant and watching all the motorbikes zig-zag its way through the streets. Couldn't believe that it was going so smoothly, with no accidents. Suddenly two motorbikes made contact with each other, one of them falling with the result as shown in picture. The driver was not happy!

This guy is realy unlucky. If it had been cola or water, the damage would have been manageble. But spilling precious beer??? Very unlucky day!
Great capture. I like the way the guy seems to been counting his loss. Good job.

what a great shot :D
i love the way the man is standing, just looking at the mess, and i don't know whether the driver on bike 79 was the cause of this, but he looks surprisingly guilty and ashamed.(i can't deny it made me laugh)
the colours are perfect against the grey floor and i love the whole composition

Well, a good capture of the post-accident blues - all men - all fixated on the beer - I hope of course you rushed down and help the man clear up the spillage!
best wishes Kev

What a waste, all the good beer
Funny , first thing I would do is grab a beer

Excellent composition and format of this shot.
The streetscene is like a theater scene with its actors and the tragedy of loosing someone or ... something.
You did well with this POV and congrats for the high quality of the shot.

Super composition, nicely cropped. The grey canvas provides an excellent background to the scene. I wonder if that beer will be deducted from his wages, the poor fella.

Absolutely not his day, but it was better than hurting himself in the accident...indeed he was lucky. Colours works well here. Good shot.

What a lovely shot and well timed. Unlucky boy, but lucky you to capture it with that POV.
Well done and have fun on TE>

Ha! This wasn't what I was thinking of when I set up the theme, but I have to agree with Swiatek that it's a perfect fit!

Veldig morsomt bilde. Like spesielt hoftegrepet til han som står ved siden av den veltede scooteren.

Ha, very interesting story! I simply love the POV, the way you told the story and titled it. Great pictures are ones that can tell stories.
Thanks for sharing. Added to my favourites with no doubt.

oh dear this is a dramatic scene, I bet the driver was quite pissed off.
Nice composition to this drama, sharp colour and good detail.
Thank you for sharing.

Poor bloke! Look at the ravage...as much as I feel sorry for the man, the spilt beer bottles do contrast nicely with his cap ^_^

Realmente tragico accidente, sobre todo en epoca de calor es una gran perdida.
Un saludo desde Espaņa:

If its cola then its still fine. But if its beer the Oh My God all these precious liquid getting wasted. LOL.
Well very well collected daily life shot. The attitudes are collected very nicely. Feel Sorry for the Guy in red cap. He is looking very confused now. Hope he does not have to pay from his pocket.
