Photographer's Note

Transport in S.E.Asia in general and Cambodia in particular is fascinating . It is quite common to see entire families on a single motobike - no helmets or any safety equipment ...

This photo was taken on a trip to Ko Ker. I allways insist on sitting next to the driver and try to have my camera ready in order to take advantage of the various contraptions used for transportation.
We were overtaking this moto ... at quite high speed.
I asked the driver to drive at the same speed as the bike's at its side - the road is very bumpy+ in Cambodia cars are driven like in the US ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THE ROAD...the wheel is supposed to be on the left , but in Cambodia alot of cars are imported second hand from Japan or Thailand where cars are driven the same as in England ... so the driver's wheel
is on the right hand side even though you are driving on the right hand ... which means this photo was taken
at around 50km per hour on a bumpy road with the driver and the wheel in the middle between me and the subject ... I took 5 photos in quick succession,this is the best although I would have been happier with the front whell of the moto completely in the shot/
