I captured this photo through the windscreen of our coach of commuters in Ho Chi Minh City. This unstoppable avalanche of people seem somehow to move without endlessly crashing. There is minimum “tooting” and the scooters seem to flow almost like schools of fish with each member almost instinctively gliding by the other.
With some scooters bearing up to 5 people and others carrying the most amazing things (you can see a full sized fridge in its box weaving its way through the traffic in the middle top of the picture) it is a sight not easily forgotten, but I cannot say I am desperate to repeat it again.
Here is the same photo with a “heat map” treatment which gave it an interesting graphic art quality I thought.
