The drumming trio

Today was the day of the Gay Parade. Jamey called me to join him in getting some shots. I've not had time to download and process the shots. Apart from the fact that it was very wet we did get a few good shots and maybe the fact that it was helped us.

Anyway I'm hoping to post the shots tomorrow instead. In the meantime here's ANOTHER mono shot from Nigeria. One of the few left.

Nice photo, Jide. The definition you're able to achieve is astounding... even up to the wrinkles and the condition of their 'equipment'.

These guys must've enjoyed playing for your shot!
I love the processing. You brought out nice tones.

Really good shot. I love the facial expression of the man in the middle, he looks really excited.. smile

But man, look at his hands.. those are spiderish fingers...!
Wonderful photograph, full of detail and I love the three central characters. (:o)

June Pride month is now gone here in the States. Was your Gay Parade yesterday, Jide, or today, July 1?

Anyway, with this pic from Nigeria, you pay homage to all the ancestors...of all of us! Thank you.

This is a spectactular photograph of what I hope is still an active African tradition. In what country did you take this? Nigeria?
