Weekly Photo Challenge: Launch

Here is the first weekly photo challenge for 2012. I was slightly worried that it wouldn’t be continued, since there’s no longer a postaday/week 2011. These are not inspirational photos to launch you into the new year, instead the photos remind you to be cautious before you launch yourself into traffic. I took the photos while in Beijing and Shenyang. I honestly don’t think anyone followed traffic laws. I found myself closing my eyes at times.

People really know how to get around in a bike.

Add some wet snow and the traffic is even more fun.

I took this photo standing on a walkway bridge and saw a few accidents or close calls.

  8. to launch into the traffic or not to launch, that seems the question here :-)

  9. Images that reminds me of how it was driving around the Philippines. No seat belts, no traffic lights, anything goes. And yes, you have to brace yourself before launching to a street of craziness. But I guess we all adapt. I’ve seen more accidents in the U.S. freeway than on the streets of no rules. Exciting and thrilling post! Have a great weekend….

    • Perhaps those individuals are more prepared for disaster, since anything can happen and it often seems crazy. In the U.S., people are more concerned about talking on cell phones. Oh well. Thanks for your comment!
