No Cars!

NPhoto - - Photographer Of The Year 2016 - Pauline Jones

The com­po­si­tion of this shot is strong but sub­tle. The lead­ing line of the road draws our eye down the im­age to the two fig­ures and the don­key in the fore­ground. But all along the road­side we can see peo­ple walk­ing, busy with their day’s events – a re­minder that each ran­dom passer-by is liv­ing a life as vivid and com­plex as your own. With no ve­hi­cles in sight, this is also a rare shot for Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, which at the last count re­port­edly had around 200,000 ve­hi­cles on the road. Nikon D80, 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6, 1/125 sec, f/8, ISO250
