Well, I think its now the 1st all over the world. So we can start voting and I'll begin by voting for Frogfish' recycling man on the bike. There were a bunch of second places that were all good, but I liked Froggy's the best.

I'll cast my vote for the dugout canoe by thkn777.

The simplicity/crudeness of its design and construction really contrasts with the more modern means of transportation.

As Glenn said some very close seconds but in the end my vote goes to John Pattulo's WWII plane.

Some very creative views of transportation, but Frogfishes guy on the bike with the huge load gets my vote.

I especially like the Spitfire (the b&w conversion lends period authenticity), the kayak's eye view and the jet boat, but I am voting for NMRecording's ants because of his outside of the box approach to the topic.

As always, a difficult decision. I like the nose of the kayak into the mountains, the jetboat, the ant, and others, but my vote's gotta go to frogfish....such a mound of garbage being moved by such a little bike.

I'll vote for the trekking shoes. I had a similar idea so was happy to see someone else think in the same direction.

i'm gonna have to go with frogfish's - really captures the moment and is a very unique image not something you see everyday (at least in the western hemisphere)

There were many fine pictures depicting the subject but for sheer chuckles I have to give my vote to Kevin's super biker.

I saw and photographed a few of these herculean bikers while in China. I even saw one pedaling down the freeway in Xi'an with what looked like bales of cotton stacked high. I used to tell my wife that it was China's UPS.
