Rickshaws (人力車) were used practically a hundred years ago, but now we can see them only in some scenic sites. Arashiyama (嵐山), Kyoto is one of the sites.

Your title defends well the choice of selected colors but i'm sure in total sepia would have been very good too

@k@: You mean this one ? Thank you for your advice.

Have you ever tried one? I always feel sorry for the poor young men -- they have to work so hard!

29 Jan 2010 12:01pm

@GJC: No, I haven't. I agree with you. But, I guess they are so tough !

It must be so tough to pull people around. What a great shot and the selective colouring works a treat.

I do not get this selective colors in this sepia tones. To me it would work much better in sepia only or BW !

A very attractive street scene Hiro! I was amused to see that the shoe that bears his driver are the same as my children are very often! Thanks very much!

Good evening, Hiro
I like this scene very well, as well as color. I think that the man who the rickshaw has to pull the whole day, is tired at night. I wish you a pleasant evening. Dear greetings Christel
