Mysterious E-Ryder by Karl Dedolph
Photo was taken sitting down at a cafe in Newport Beach, California. Zone focus with a primary subject and a group of secondary subjects. The family seemed a little intimidated by the helmet and face shield. I sort of was as well.

童乩 by José Enrique Montes Hernandez
I took this picture of a Spirit Medium in Taiwan during one of the religious processions. Spirit mediums, also known as Tang-ki (童乩) or Jitong (乩童), play a crucial role as intermediaries between the human world and the spirit realm. During their rituals, some spirit mediums may employ self-flagellation as a means to enter a trance state and communicate with the spirits. Additionally, they often endure long hours of the procession, staying awake through the use of smoking (nicotine) or chewing betel nut. In the picture, we can observe a spike ball still attached to his back, his ears deformed from numerous past self-flagellation practices, and a cigarette in his mouth.
Eh Up! by Simon Armstrong
It’s common for people in my area (UK East Midlands) to refer to each other a Duck. The greeting “Eh Up Mi Duck!”, is roughly equivalent of “Hey man, how ya doing?”. Some cheeky graffiti artist obviously saw an opportunity for a visual gag. 🙂
