Insurance for certainty


This image to me represents just that. Taking the "head ache" off other people whilst keeping a smile. Yeah....More, c'mon gimme more of your money, erhem, headache. Can't you see my basket is still very empty.

Don't you feel sometimes that the whole world just wants your money, and they take if from you with a big smile on their face. Don't get me wrong this image is far from that for what actually is happening. All this is is a few kids who really are fund of being photographed. I would walk to photograph a boring tatched wall and they would run to the otherside to pose as if that is what I wanted them to do. These kids are a natural. That's it, they provide so much insurance or assurance that I can never get a bad shot of them. They give you all that a good shot needs that you neednth worry....."c'mon Mr photographer, snap me! don't worry about anything, I'll do the hard work. I'll take the burden off you. All you have to do is press the trigger"

Sometimes I wonder if there are too many photographers competing for the same photo that you need to take out an insurance policy on your shots. Yeah, YOU'RE ALL GETTING THE SAME DAM IMAGE FOR GOD SAKE!!! So where is the money. Maybe that's why they call it the rat race. Too many stinky rodents running after the same thing which will inevitably be taken from them at the finish line...oh did you say "finish line", Jide? Yes I did, Finish line, does it really exist? I don't know but you wouldn't know unless you go and find out but before you do, remember to take out an insurance policy incase you just find yourself running and running and running and running and running.

I like the amount of shadows dappling the subjects. It's an interesting choice to shoot through whatever you shot through. Very effective.
