Easy Riders?
This is actually one of my favorite accidental shots ever from my last trip to the Sichuan Province of China. Purely happenstance, I was sitting in the front seat of the vehicle with camera ready and set to ISO 400 and AV mode. I really did not notice this bike, but thought unusual when we quickly approached at 80km/hour. I snapped the image and upon review, was thrilled with the results. Of course, the little boy sitting backwards with those eyes caught my attention, but as I dug deeper into the image, I also noticed you can actually see all three faces. For extra credit...can you tell what the driver is doing? (not sure if easy to see with this smaller image).

Cute! And predictably, I like the subtle vignetting ;-)

btw I cannot tell what the driver is doing - please tell.

Yes...hard to tell on this image, but the father actually has a cigarette between his fingers just below his chin in the mirror.  Just a casual family outing!  

 Great shot Richard - love it, full of humour!

A superb travel photograph.

Cute kiddo .. all 3 having very different expressions, very natural photo !
