I just find this photograph – taken last week in Peshawar – so very interesting. What do you think will happen next? Will one or both of them fall? Will they make it to their destination? Do you think they know each other or is the guy on the bicycle tagging along uninvited? What do you think is in the boxes? What does the ‘takhti’ at the front of the motorcycle read? Why is the guy on teh bicycle resting his foot on the bar instead of the pedal?

There is obviously no answer to any of these questions, but sometimes the simplest of compositions about everyday life makes you think. Even smile!

    This is silly. Obviously they know each other and are on the same job, and he has his foot up on the bar to better distribute the weight, as he has his arm outstretched on that side.

    Do they fall? Probably not, they’re probably pros at this. Hell, I’ve done that so many times back when I ferried pharmaceuticals back and forth for my uncle’s store.

    I understand what you were trying to do, evoke discussion/imagination, but really, this is rather hum-drum and obvious.

    To Abizaib,

    “There are only two types of people in the world. The one who perform and the one who observe”
    The gentlemen are also performing in their capacity though inappropriate choice of venue. Something I try to be careful of.
    I see a relevance in an entertaining way and its ok if you dont.
