Plantain

Hawking Plantain on the roads of Lagos. I've been trying to compile shots of scenes around Lagos but I haven't been bold enough to step out of the car to get better shots. One day. How is the new year going?

Great work with the DOF and color tones!

Lovely shot, did you get this from inside the car? Here here to Abisola's comment and yours. Just never brave enough. If you need a buddy to hold your hand, count me in!
smileI need a shot from Oshodi Bridge
I like this. The dodo stands out starkly against the background, its yellow like the sun brought low and put for sale on the girl's head.

And regarding the fear of out-of-car shots in Lagos, I feel you. Tis not easy at all... Lagos is not that welcoming... but then, life is all about risks, so...

Have a fulfilling 2008!
A shot that warms my heart smile I kind of feel for her in that Lagos heat. The shot puts her in her element. All the best for 08.

Happy New Year E. I know what you mean by taking shots back home, you will need a good zoom lens with possibly IS. Nice comp on this shot, although I think it could be a bit sharper.
