Every now and then on flickr an image gets a lot of visits and you never quite know why.
This is one such image from my travels in Japan with Siobhan. It has easily three times the visits of what I would regard as more interesting shots, but why fight the crowd.
For me the interest in this image is what it says about cycling in Japan. People don’t really get dressed up to go out riding, they get dressed up and then ride their bike to wherever it is they’ve dressed-up for. Just as many westerners would simply drive, many Japanese simply ride.
