Not only was this a narrow street, but it was a busy side street with pedestrians, commercial vehicles and many other cyclists. Besides the texting, notice his hand grip? He’s using 3 fingers to push up against his grip!! What the heck? So other than not paying attention, if he had to make an emergency maneuver, what can he do other than fly over his handlebars face first?
I easily saw him approaching so I was able to frame him into my image, although he had no idea what was going on. Photographically, I like the way the wind blew his jacket open, and I like his cool purple cargo pants and white Birkenstocks. In fact, even his bike was pretty cool, including his blue bike lock. A very stylish yet dangerous guy! Ride on Osaka….but pay attention man!!
