You're very brave taking your expensive camera on that unreliable means of transport. lol What if it...
Chai, you're brave. I don't think i can do that.
Jide Alakija: I think you've got to think about what the image is worth to justify whether it's worth it. In my case it was well worth it.

It doesn't like you asked him if you could take the photo smile. Great capture.
