Portrait of a Tricycle Driver


"God Bless Our Trip" are the words knitted into the interior window decor.

For some context, this is his tricycle that four of us climbed into.

Dumaguete, 2011

LOVE this shot....the tastles, the mirror, the mystery of the face. Imagining 3 people on that trike...that provides a nice chuckle. That fellow must be a good peddler. happy weekend Francisca.

That's the kind of tuk-tuk one finds in Asia! It is fun to travel like this but sometimes could be dangerous (in heavy traffic). I traveled like this only once, in Jaipur, India.

God Bless Our Trip ~ Amen.

This journey that we are on is certainly a trip and we all need God's blessings.

I was in a taxi very much like this in Mexico. It was an adventure. Like the portrait in the mirror.

That first photo is a classic! It's got it all. Especially because it's candid... Very nice!

Tuk Tuk, that what they called this in Thailand and Sarawak. But they won't take is, 2 adults and 3 kids, we had to go in two tuk tuk. They were very cheap.

The expression on his face is so serious. I guess he was concentrating on getting to your location safely! Beautiful reflection shot, Francisca!

Rickshaws, tuk tuks, are my favourite transports in asian cities. Hats off to the top shot.
