On Monday, Tunde, Andrew Esiebo and took some photos for the Paraiso School of Samba. This year I decided that I'd try and do something different as I wasn't sure I covered the Samba school properly the last time.

I'm not sure I will post another shot tomorrow as I'm not entirely sure that they are all blog worthy. Let's see.

nice choice of shutter speed. Good work.
Jide Alakija: I was shooting in Av...so no I didn't choose the shutterspeed. The camera did.

Tell a lie - she gives it a bit more character I guess - hmmm, it's debatable...
