[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
During my 3 weeks in Dakar, last month, I spent a lot of time in traffic jams as the city is experimenting a lot of big works in order to welcome the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC) summit to be held from 2007 to 2008.
This is one of the huge billboard about the road leading to the top ... game of words with the French word Sommet that means both "Top" and "Summit".

Taken on la Corniche, the road along the ocean and where Ousmane Sow, the famous Senegalese artist, exhibited his sculptures in 1999. There was also an exhibition on the Pont des Arts in Paris between Le Louvre museum and the French Academy.

A chacun son moyen de transport : L'un est en vélo et l'autre en mobylette.
C'est ce qu'on appele la différence des classes non ?
Bravo !

Hi Sylvie,
One Word : Wonderful.


Une capture à différents niveaux et à plusieurs messages, comme tu sais si bien les faire, Sylvie. J'aurais possiblement aimé avoir le cycliste en avant-plan un peu moins présent mais dans l'ensemble j'aime beaucoup cette image et son jeux de mots. Bravo!

  • Great
