Award Shortlist   

In Between

By Potra  
Thanks you so much for your kind comments on my previous upload.
I want to express my gratitude to Ron and Kate for the User Awards they conceded to the picture.

I will continue with my exploration of color and how it can be used to enhance or produce a feeling. Hope this one conveys the message.

This is pretty much the only way to get a picture of the police or national guard without getting in trouble. I had a close encounter yesterday with the bolivarian national guard (the chavista one) for a picture that was not even good. Fortunately I kept the cool and didn't run, when they stopped the car I turned around and quickly put the camera in my bag and got into the crowd (remember it is supposed to be Carnival) and jumped inside an ice cream shop. My heart was racing fast, I am not as bold as I thought. Smile Had I run they would've found me...

One more of my adventures in this (I'm sorry to admit it) Oil & Banana Republic.
Hugs to all.

Great to see a touch of the carnival atmosphere, Marian, but your story above worries me, do take extra care and don't run risks of getting into trouble. Carol

Agree with Peter.

What will you do first, Marian, when all this is finally settled...
...publish a book of photographs?
...write a novel? in an action movie with Bruce Willis?

You are indeed special.

Excitement and danger! Glad to see that life does go on amidst the chaos
and the colours convey happiness in those snatched moments.
A little worried that wrong person sees your log here or on Facebook.
Please do take care.
