Q: What is the best lens for theater photography?

A: Do you know?

I took this picture while visiting the hospital in Haydom in northern Tanzania. This bike was just outside the gates of a tiny village. Bikes are, of course, the most important means to get around in this part of the world. It took a bit of playing around with the colours, I admit it, to get the effect I wanted, but I think it gives the image a "pop" quality.
