I love that last shot of the old man!

And even though I'm a carnivore, the picture of the tied up, dejected piggie makes me sad. Oh well, hope it tasted good. :(

Thanks guys! I have a 13x19 of the last one and it looks very nice.

Unfortunately the pig didn't even taste that good...

Hey Jurgen, realised I'd not posted in here for ages, so here are two shots of Japanese kids being photo by other people. The first one shows the 100% typical "pose" they love to do = why it's so difficult to shoot teens....
The second is how I wish I capture Japanese kids all the time = 100% natural, inquisitive, delightful!

Simon,,that pose is so typical when photographing Asian teenagers.. Why do they do this?? Where did it originate??

Your second pic is just gorgeous:D

Not strictly a street candid but interesting all the same..

These are shots from a traditional Lao wedding baci.. Bacis have their roots in animist traditions before Buddhism was introduced into Laos.. White cotton threads are tied around the wrists of the recipients for good luck and prosperity.. Bacis are performed at weddings, birth of a child, funerals, welcoming home and going away ceremonies..

Pics are out of my G10 at 800 ISO..

Hey Jurgen, thanks for the compliment on my second shot...
And yeah, that first one is so tough to get the kids to NOT do. Just asked Missus Skygod, and she's no idea either. Perhaps (as I heard some-when ago) it's linked to the US-"capture" of Japan after the Nagasaki/Hiroshima bombings, when GI-Joe would flash the V-for-Victory sign to the locals....but something tells me that Ol' Churchill was the chap who started that trend after one of his speeches.....
Not sure...............may​be someone can enlighten us?

Another couple from me from the city...

First is a typical Japanese lady, scared the sun will damage her skin....but this time, she's not just carrying a sun umbrella - no, these crafty Japanese now will sell you a double-clamp for attaching a sun umbrella to your bicycle! So "Japanese" and so dangerous when it's windy!

Second shot I spotted from the coffee shop window! Just tickled me a bit....don't know why.

I have seen something similar here in Laos but they clamp the umbrella to the handlebars of the motorbikes/scooters..

I've seen a few times once the bike gets up to speed the umbrella turns inside out.. Kind of funny I think!!

Also riders especially women riding motorbikes holding umbrellas..

I've always had the idea of shooting a series on crazy things on motorcycles.. I now feel inspired!!

This is fairly typical around here;);)

Three or four on a bike is common but five is rare although I have seen it a couple of times..
