IMITATION OR DEATH?



Taken in Tokyo, I jumped up and down when I chanced upon this, and no other vehicles stopped at the lights. You can see it bigger here

That's so funny! Is that a brand name, I wonder? And what's that other word? DUNE? RUNE? PRUNE?

I like that his jacket mentions "imitation" and he's stopped on a motorcycle next to a little drawing of...a cycle.

It's like a giant sexual "no entry" sign.

Beautiful moment captured on film (or digitally, I guess). I have lots of pics taken seconds AFTER a beautiful moment. Your timing is delicious. Bravo!

His image uncool,
Dressed like a fool,
His wheels unchic,
Poor guys a geek...
No one will imitate,
So we now know his fate.

Ah Pod you've done it again! This is such a fantastic find - glad you managed to catch it. Sometimes it's all about a split second...

Look who's talking; no, honestly, look. From where does that caption bubble emerge? And while we're on the subject of originating sources, from where did you take this picture?

"Dutch or Duck," that's thre real question.

Wow - awesome shot, man! So graphic! You were at the right place at the right time.
Thanks for getting on my case about not posting enough - I find it tough to go out in the cold and shoot! I think your shots are great and it's cool to know that you're checking mine. Later, dude.

Ohhh I do like a good graphic geometry! Especially when there's a person involved. A person on a MOTORCYCLE. Or a moped (I've never been good at vehicle identification).

HOTT.

What's up with Letty and the singing mouse?

Pod - that's a photo of a man on a scooter in an empty street. It's grey and white and yellow. It's a nice photo as photos go.

But...I can't get designer poncy about it. What am I missing that everyone else is raving about?

Maybe it's the wine? I can't see anymore. Sorry love.

lmfao Wendy! I can't see the photo unless I click on it to enlarge it! It's just a box with a cross in it otherwise.

I like it though. In a country that is so fantastic at imitating (and improving) I like that guys 'individuality' (I think)
