One Moment: Relief and Buses



^^The back view of a Ndiaga Ndiaye yesterday, public buses here in Dakar... not to be confused with Car Rapides!

The drive home from work is an enormous relief, and I never tire of the colorful buses that dot the streets of Dakar as we make our way home. A stop in traffic provides a rare opportunity to capture one of these buses on camera, in motion. Notice the French and Senegalese flags. "Talibé Cheikh" represents the followers of a Muslim leader called Cheikh, who run this bus company. 

I love the attention to detail on these hand-painted buses, like this fabulous car rapide I snapped at the market a few years ago...

The eyes! The flags! The color!
