Thats not right part 2

This isn't right, actually its quite dangerous, or am I just soft. Anyway your probably thinking what's under the cloth she has wrapped around her, yes you guessed right, it's another child, well a baby more like it. Scary!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyway I got this shot while we zoomed past and I know its not technically sound, but there you go, can't get 'em all.

Thank God its friday.

Cool BW. Love the grain too. Maybe a bit more "constant" in it.
I like the grain, also. Gives it a gritty feel, as though you are shooting a documentary.

What an amazing shot. This is very....idk Asiko. I just really dig this shot. You, Jide, and Suby are killing me. My today's shot will be garbage in comarison. lol

Idleye says you are learning the art of the decisive moment, Asiko.

You were there, the shot was there and before the moment was gone, you had captured it!

That is what is important. After you have the shot (hopefully including an exposure that is usable) then the other aspects have importance.

PS dig the sign of 'do-nots' in the background - nothing about riding baby sandwich style.

Great capture, you have posted some cracking images of late my friend, just a shame you did'nt capture the whole bike, but it's always difficult trying to get the shot with traffic whizzing by...

That's definitely not right - so u took this pic? Well done, I can see what y'all mean by "the grain". They look like they are about to pancake the poor girl i.e. flatten her

Nice street shot! Indeed a bit careless but so is life in some countries. You can't really blame them if they have no money to buy a car !

Men this is a normal phenomenon in Naija, I would like to see a study done on how many people actually die from okada accidents in naija every year. somehow i dont think the results will be very encouraging.

black and white and grain seem to be the way out for these kinds of shots.

American will probaly say do not litter,
In Lagos we say do not "DUMP REFUSE", this in my opinion is the senior brother of "Litter"

The more i look at this picture the more meaning it has !

good shot!

What a capture of daily life! Sometimes families have to make do with what they have. In this case a motorcycle instead of a car.

It may not be technically sound, but it tells a story. That looks very dangerous to me.
Great quick shot. I like your processing on this one. Regards, Brent
