This week's Jigidi theme is "Automobiles", so I made these kaleidoscopes from images of Thailand's ubiquitous Tuk Tuks!! Pronounced as "took took" because of the sound of their motorcycle two-stroke engines, they are described as "auto rickshaws", and are found in many countries, not just Thailand. But that is where I've had personal experience of them. In Thailand, they are EVERYWHERE, and the drivers tout for business by saying "transport?" to you, and making wildly exaggerated gestures of steering a car. Much to their amusement, I usually answer them with "I already have transport", and point to my legs! LOL For those of you who have never heard of Tuk Tuks, here's a link to the Wikipedia entry for them:

The images I use are freely available on the internet. And I use a variety of programs to make my kaleidoscopes, colour the backgrounds and assemble them into a collage. All of which takes around 2 hours.

It gives me immense pleasure making them, and I hope it gives you pleasure solving them. :-)
