I like this shot, it seems to exemplify China in many ways. These are motorcycle rickshaws and China has had them forever (rickshaws I mean). These vehicles are also illegal – if they are not registered which they usually are not. They are prohibited from acting as taxis- which they usually do. They cost much less than the vehicles surrounding them highlighting China’s income duality and difference in income levels… or maybe I just think they look pimp.
