Theme Day: People Watching

                                                                                                                                                                Photo taken at Montilla Boulevard, Butuan City

Today, September 1st, is the first day of the month. Which means that cities that are member of City Daily Photo around the world is having a photo theme day! The theme is people watching. I had a photo I wanted to post today but I didn't realize I also have to incorporate window boxes and road works in the photo. As a second choice, this photo taken on the road (not road work) with buildings and windows is not so bad, I think.

I was watching people on the street especially the two people riding on a motorcycle with wings. For those who are not familiar with this, its called a "skylab." Motorcycles like this usually seats two or three but with the added contraption on the sides it can seat up to more than six people! Or in this case loads up cargo with ease.

This was my old post about this similar sight: Skylab.

Well done, Lyria. The Theme really is only 'people watching'. It was the winner of the list of three.

But, you have contributed to a Theme Day, which is wonderful.

Those 'wings' on the motorcycle ... are they dangerous? Surely it would make it easier for the bike to spin out of control and hurt both rider and passenger.

Welcome aboard ...

It does look dangerous. Unsafe. But its a mode of transportation going to places not accessible for the 4 wheel vehicles. I have ridden my fair share of Habal-habal (its when 3 or more people ride on a single motorcycle) but I have never ridden one of these! hehe And I'm not sure if I want to!

Wow I think you've captured window-boxes and roadworks too here.

It's very interesting what you said about "skylab". I think to have seen something like in Malaysia.
