photoblog image view jibowu

view jibowu

another view from another hotel (the one we stayed in during the outreach of a the last three posts)

you'll notice the ghost of a car at  bottom left...unlike the other cars in the shot which were stationary for the full length of the shot, it just came into frame towards the last few seconds of exposure, and likely parked
how do i know it just came in? (as opposed to just drove away), i can see the direction of the streak of light its front headlights made during the exposure (exept he reversed)
you'll also notice some ghosting near the black car at bottom centre...that's a human being

At nighttime, where do all those people go, DrAW???
DrAW!: lol!
as much as we love the night life in lagos, it wasn't that late...say not up to an hour after twilight
i'd intended to get a twilight shot, but i didn't have enought time, after the day's work

FYI A 20second exposure would have gotten rid of most (if not all) of the ghosts wink
DrAW!: and then what?
i'd have the perfect image?
sheesh!
Night shoot that was good. I liked to see the depth of this photograph as well as the atmosphere at night. I love motion. Regards from Yogyakarta Indonesia.

The mix of a suburban looking house and the lean-to next to it is really odd to me. This is an interesting documentary shot.

sweet shot!
Looks like Suriname:p
