Gordon, The banjo player #1

On Saturday I went out with Andrew Oseibo (a Professional Photojournalist) and a very good friend, Andrew Turpie. We went shooting at Portobello market.

It was such great fun working with both Andrews today and I look forward to the next time we would go out again like this. You can actually see Andrew O, on the left in the background.

This image i part of a three part series that I am calling "Gordon, the Banjo player". Apart from the distraction on the right I am very happy with this one.

i do not see the person on the right as a distraction.I didnt see her until you mentioned it. To me,she adds to the scene.she makes the picture look more natural or say,more "streetlike"

i guess this is what el mariachi might look like in his old age,after killing so many baddies in Mexico he trades in his guitar for a banjo and lives like a fugitive on Portobello road.

Nice capture
Jide Alakija: Thanks man!
What distraction? We no see a distraction, we see a well captured scene smile
Jide Alakija: Thanks Buddy...I hope you like the third shot in the series.

hey it's back to the banjo's

cool shot

i bet you won't have mentioned a distraction on the right if she'd been wearing a dark coloured skirt
Jide Alakija: lol....I'm not sure. I didn't want her there at all, that being said she does make the picture tell a different story.

I'm inclined to agree with you about the lady in the white skirt, a moment or two later and she might have had less impact. The rest of the picture's just fine.
Jide Alakija: Thanks Ellie.
