Weekly Photo Challenge: (Enter the) Fray

Back straight. Elbows up. Eyes forward and on the prize.

In Asia, you often have to enter the fray, just to walk down the street at rush hour.

Street brawls aside though, a battle between b-boys is one of the most entertaining frays around. At R-16 Korea, B-Boy Pocket creates quite the commotion with his not-quite human moves. All ends well though, with hugs and celebration.

The fray caused by Hugh Jackman’s promotional appearance here in Seoul, involved pushing, screaming, and all-out war for a photo op. It’s a wonder I survived with limbs intact.

Perhaps the best fray I’ve seen though, is the clamour created by passengers traveling by train, in general seating in India. Sure it costs pennies, but is it worth losing an arm or a leg? 😉

  1. I’ll never get over the craziness of that Hugh Jackman event! It’s a good thing he’s such a nice guy (allegedly 🙂

    • Lol…it was truly nuts. He does seem like a nice guy. There were nice guy vibes all over that place, that is, except for amongst the fans. 😉

  2. I had the camera packed away as we prepared to board the train in Agra and missed loads of photo ops…. Great frays

    • Thanks! 🙂 There are indeed photo ops galore in Indian train stations. Always quite the experience, isn’t it!?

  3. In Shanghai its like that to get on the metro. They have been doing public announcements to help teach them how to get on and off a train, but it is crazy when you are not used to it. I find it funny when walking and there is lots of space, but yet people still need to walk close to you and bump into you… really??? you couldn’t take one step over and avoid me? I would if I could, but often I can’t move out of the way.

    • I totally know what you mean about people bumping into you. It drives me bananas!!! But I swear people are just completely unaware… it’s almost like they need to human contact or something in a strange way. I’ve even been sitting on a completely empty subway, and had the person come and sit RIGHT NEXT to me. It’s sooo bizarre to me!!

      • I think on this side of the world personal space doesn’t mean the same thing 😉
