Night

 

Despite not being so, these two look a little Lomo.  Probably caused by resting the camera on some railings in place of a tripod.

Cropping?

Is this image better cropped or not?  The first image is cropped and is probably the better composition.  But the second image below shows more context.  You get a better idea that these two ladies are on stilts in the second image.

After sitting on this picture for about a year, I think I finally like it.  Very lucky of me to get the moment when they were both adjusting their headdress but facing in different directions and it’s taken me a long time to see that.

Stilt Walkers

These two stilt walkers fit in with where’s my backpack’s theme of balance.

Softplay

This is softplay.

For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure, it’s where midgets run around slides and cargo netting at a manic pace while adults are overcharged for coffee.  You can hold your child’s birthday party there because nothing says happy birthday like a meal of chicken nuggets and a free cap.
