This is the second shot from the Carnival I covered over the bank holiday weekend. This is a follow up from yesterday's shot. I think there is a certain amount of humour offered by this one compared to yesterdays.

What do you think?

Like this one, but prefer yesterdays'
Jide Alakija: Thanks.
seems like a weird carnival, but I like the composition.
Jide Alakija: Thanks Dotun. To give a bit more background as I should have in my description, these shots are not from the carnival itself but merely at the base where the floats start. You get a lot of people hanging around looking at the costumes and floats...I was just warming up.
i just found your stream, and i want to congratulate you, it's incredible beautifull what you do!!
see you
Jide Alakija: Thanks Alejandro, how did you find out about my page?

Brilliant shot, Jide. As hilarious as yesterday's, but compositionally, this one is much tighter.
Jide Alakija: Thanks...I couldn't think of a better way to compose it without loosing the moment.
nice series man

tight composition yeah...but the man's expression is the star of the show
Jide Alakija: Thanks.

Ah bless him smilelol Love the composition, nice one.

Nice to see u on Monday, in the midst of all that chaos. Hope u had fun shooting on the day. I didn't quite get the images I was hoping for, but I'll try again next year smile
Jide Alakija: Hi Din, I didn't get great shots either. The weather was terrible. I don't know if I'll be doing it next year....if I am, then I must get a good commission for it.
I think it is very funny. I can see many thoughts in this man's head.
Jide Alakija: Many many thoughts...thanks Mary.
