Afro Gala 2006 : OOOOOFFF!!!

When I saw this moment I went...."OOOOOFFF". This was from the same show as of last night. For those of you interested I have put up a gallery of all the images from the show. I mean ALL. Including the bad ones too. (Sorry I couldn't find time to filter them out).

The streets : Food for thought on today...I have a question which needs answering.

My boys can do that only they used to get their hands and feet almost touching...OUCH!!! (Years of competitive gymnastics makes one rather flexible.)

Nice moment.

To the 'gymnast' - bravo for doing this in heels!
To Monsieur Jide - what a perfect angle to capture a great pose. It is always special with Jide Alakija

There must be easier ways to inspect the floor!

This is superbly caught, and I've had a look at 70 or so of the rest of the series and they too are superb. Wonderful colours.
