    Oh Sharon it is so tragic. A picture of devastation but well captured.

  • Pat, this was taken last year when all was quiet. This is a normal street scene for Africa. In Kenya in particular, the roads are terrible, full of potholes and in fact, in many places hardly exisit at all.

    A well caught moment in time. When people have so few personal and material resources to begin with it’s hard to contemplate how traumatizing the recent events have been and how different their lives might be now.

    What’s striking for me in this image is how ‘normal’ it is: the figure walking, the figure sitting, the figure mending a bike. It’s everyday – you could imagine the same composition or arrangement of people in a street in (say) Paris, and it would seem totally different even though in some ways it is similar.

    great shot considering the conditions, well in focus and clear, ie. speeding bus and all

    Great shot! Wow this brings back memories, I remember driving on the side of the road to avoid killing the axle and seeing all those beautiful faces along the way :))

  • Yes, the roads are terrible and despite the conditions there is always so much colour and something to see.

    This well caught shot of a typical scene shows how little these people had when times were good and now even that has been destroyed for many of them. We were there only 2 weeks before all the riots started and it seems so sad as then the people were so lovely, smiling and friendly.
