A man having fun with his remote-controlled toy boat
Spotted from a bus: a youth waiting to cross the road
with his remote-controlled truck ;b
Still more "boys" with their toys -- this time
ascending a hill out in the countryside! :)
Probably because of the considerable noise those model boats made as they roared around, the toys and their owners had attracted quite a crowd of onlookers. And while it can seem on the strange side for people to be so transfixed by this, I must admit to finding it all quite hypnotic myself too after I stopped to survey the scene and got to fixating on watching the boats racing round and round the pool!
In contrast, whenever I've come across people with remote-controlled cars and trucks, it tends to be the hobbyists who attract me more than their toys. Sometimes content to be on their own, there also are others among them who prefer to meet up and indulge in their passions with like-minded folks: who range in age from young fellows who look like they're still in secondary school all the way to white-haired retiree-types; but who, without exception thus far, have uniformly been of the male persuasion!
