you dont mean the wee old man and his grand daughter in the back do yis? wink i like the selective yellow here.. maybe if they had a job to do, such as catch your monster from yesterday - they wouldn't be so grumpy. ~S.
Abisola Fatokun: No, not them Sara! It's them traffic wardens!! They do their job TOO well@
The scourge of every motorist in London,

U know I actually wrote my comment before I read yours grin
Abisola Fatokun: Looks like we're on the same page on this, Subs. I've been ticketed on my own street Twice! sad B*****ds

Is he giving you the ole evil eye, Bisola? smile

Great use of selective coloring here. Perfect.
Abisola Fatokun: Thanks Ginnie! I wasn't sure if selective colouring won't end up looking cheesy but it looks like the toning down of the yellows prevented that! I hope!
I saw him looking at me and I thought: "I dare you to do your worst!"... luckily, he didn't :p
These guys !!!
Abisola Fatokun: yes o, these guys!! If I said I loved them, I'd be the biggest liar!
I love the look you are getting from the guy on the right. lol! (:o)
Abisola Fatokun: LOL. I was hoping that he wouldn't confront me 'cos I could see I was starting to annoy him wink
look at the one on the right scanning the zone, for his next victim *hiss*...love the selective coloring.
Abisola Fatokun: you're so right! Y'know, there's just one ounce of respect I have for them now 'cos their 'effectiveness' ensured that the car bomb plot in London failed! Thanks for dropping by.
there is lot of venom in there tinuke....
Abisola Fatokun: I think it's statistically difficult to find one driver in this country who's not been ticketed by these guys smile they're too damn efficient!

hmmm..use of telephoto lens. The cop(?) doesn't look happy to be spied on, does he? Hope you didn't get into any problems for the shot..

I like the way you have washed down the color, emphasizing on only the brightest colors of the shot especially the reflector jackets of the cops, if they are cops..
Abisola Fatokun: Hi Richa. No they're not cops... just traffic wardens. They hand out parking tickets in London. What a job!! It's probably the most hated profession here and there's even an advert on TV wondering how they'd sleep at night if they didn't have Horlicks!!!
Thanks for dropping by. I'm happy you like the selective coloration. I was hoping I didn't overdo it.
The guy on the right looks none too pleased at having his picture taken! If look could kill... time to beat a hasty retreat, I reckon. The selective colouring works really well.
Abisola Fatokun: thanks Ingrid! I quickly turned my camera to the sky as though I was taking a sky-scape when I saw him looking at me smile
