This is a shot on stopping for lunch at a village near Mole National Park in Ghana. I came across this scene while looking for a local restaurant. This yellow bike looked beckoning me for taking a picture.
I have forgotten to make a note of the name of this village carelessly, probably it's Damongo or that vicinity.
Star beer is Ghana's most famous brand. A cold bottle of beer brought excellent pleasantness after driving on the unpaved road with cloud of dust.

Great colours and composition. I like the way red is confined to the vertical lines of the fence and yellow as the colour set against it.

a beautifully seen image this, so simple but a true reflection of everyday life. The yellow bike stands out so wonderfully against the old red fence. Well seen, composed and taken.

Beautiful composition with strong colours. Well seen and well presented.
saxo042 (35780) 2011-02-01 9:09
This is indeed a very well observed cobination of different unrelated items. Together they present a fine motive, that you saw and captured.
danos (80873) 2011-02-01 10:03
it's nice to drink a glass of beer resting in this local restaurant with the plate of delicious lunch in front of you after the clouds of dust that you inhaled..
I like the laying of the yellow bicycle on the wooden red fence, with the advertisement of the beer, to dominates the scene.

Simple but realy a beautiful shot. I like the idea and the realisation. 3 items added to give a nice composition with wonderful colors and light. Well done

un beau contraste de couleurs entre cette barrière rouge et cette bicyclette jaune.
Have a nice day
ciakgiak (30403) 2011-02-01 14:13
the composition and the graphical effect are superb here.
The yellow bicycle on the red elements is an eye catcher element, the quality is absolutely excellent. Congratulations and TFS.
TRB (13377) 2011-02-01 15:18
Colors, sharpness and beautiful composition with the details. The effect of red super, beautiful square of an ad. Congratulations, Greetings
jhm (131736) 2011-02-02 5:34
Beer and bike, this is a very bad combination, you know why!
Excellent composition, good presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.
sevy (15009) 2011-02-02 5:37
Nice rendering of the colors. I like the echo in the yellow tones between the cycle and the advise.

La cloture toute rouge offre un super arrière plan à cette bicyclette jaune. Le cadrage serré est efficace et la lumière très belle.
claudeD (28826) 2011-02-03 10:11
Very fine picture with excellent stunning colors and perfect sharpness.I like your picture here here very much.Very good fotojob.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
abmdsudi (36276) 2011-02-03 19:10
Simple but really deserve the second look. I love the vibrant colors and red is too overpowering to drag eye into the scene and coincidentally 'star' shares the same color as the bike. Good observation and well capture, Well done. Congrats
jafadabret (56497) 2011-02-03 23:35
Une des plus belles photos vues ce jour ! Ce vélo jaune et la palissade orange font un ensemble très agréable.
Bon WE !
polpo56 (15134) 2011-02-03 23:51
a simple but very actractive picture.
I like these colours very much (do you know that red and yellow are the colours of my city, Rome?).
Have a nice day

This picture, so colorful, interesting and attractive, gives us a good idea about Ghana's daily life, its transportation, the most popular brand of beer, street design and general atmosphere. This is also an excellent illustration for the informative and useful note. Very well composed and perfectly captured, with the masterful management of light and colors, and very high quality!
siolaw (37644) 2011-02-12 22:52
A nice bicycle compo, with good light management without direct sunlight on the subject. Colours are nicely saturated too.
The beer advertisement gives context, and tells us which lager to choose when going to Ghana!
mvdisco (17490) 2011-03-05 18:30
I love this scene with the old bike standing on the red fence,
nice the annonce of the beer too,
good composition with warm colors and presentation..
very well done.
sacavem (18608) 2011-03-07 14:19
A scene well captured and funny.The various elements of the picture have nothing in common but the colors and the phrase and the eye of the photographer did not lose this opportunity to create a composition different from usual.
Muse (34936) 2011-03-07 23:45
Today, here in belgium, we celebrate the woman, it's not the same:-))
A beautiful compo with superb colors. Original!
