Rickshaw art

10 years ago, I was fascinated by the way that moving around Dhaka was like being in a continuously moving art exhibition! Almost all the motor rickshaws had paintings on the back. The cycle rickshaws also often had artwork, but seldom as striking. I took many photos.

 

This time, I came with the personal hope (perhaps not project, I don't have much freedom of time use!) of catching these in digital form - only to find that the motor rickshaws no longer have the painted panels! What a disappointment! It used to make the extensive traffic jams quite bearable ...

 

So I have to settle for cycle rickshaw art ... Maybe in rural areas I'll find better examples?
