We see lots of photos of cars and buses, trains and trucks but not so many of ducks … especially not riding motorcycles. But in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam — actually, all over Vietnam – motorcycles are the transit of the people and in the cities bike traffic jams look like Sunset Boulevard during rush hour. From families of four on a single cycle to huge stand-up freezers propped precariously, motorcycles carry anything that needs transporting. This photo was taken out of a car window with a Canon PowerShot SD1200 IS,with a 6.2 – 18.6mm zoom.
