the chaos in this image summarizes the soul of a continent and of its cities.The composition is so rich in colours and details that it's hard to find a focal point.Maybe this is the reason why this image strikes, you have to "enter" in the photo to understand it thoroughly.Really nice!

Looks a very busy city, bustling with activity. The point of view shows the hectic atmosphere to good effect. A well presented daily life composition with with excellent colours and sharpness.

Een beetje een 'random' foto, maar toch fijn geselecteerd, want hij geeft een geweldig beeld van de stad. Druk, hektisch en kleurrijk. De witte van in de voorgrond en zeker ook het doodshoofdlabeltje op de paal geven meerwaarde.

I have to compliment you on this one Gerrit. A shot which captures the busy and bustling atmosphere of an Africa town convincingly. So many lovely details to enjoy. Warm regards Rosemary

Hello Gerrit. Nice sharp descriptive photo from this African city. The sort of photo that I especially appreciate on TE. Busy place. So many details to look at. Regarding the aesthetic aspect, I feel there could have been a bit more room below the white truck (the most outstanding element) but that's a very minor point and likely hard to avoid when wanting to include much of the city behind. Great post! Claude

This kind of daily life shot is full of colorful details. I like to study it for a while. :-) It's always great to see photos of life in Africa, with all of the activity and different signs. I see there is a skull and crossbones on a pole in the foreground. I wonder what it is warning against...
