Taxi in Paradise

A local ‘taxi driver’ delivers food for a restaurant on car-less Morro de Sao Paulo island in Bahia, Brazil. Canon 5D Mark II camera and Canon 24-105mm f4L IS USM lens. Exposure Details: 1/640 seconds @ f9 ISO 200

Hi guys here’s another quick post from Bahia in northern Brazil.

Though I took this photo in classic urban street photography style it is actually from a small tropical island about 2-hours by boat from Salvador. In fact so non-urban is Morro de Sao Paulo that cars are not allowed on the island. This man is actually a ‘taxi driver’ as they call themselves, or perhaps more of a courier driver as he is transporting what appears to be food to a restaraunt. I took this photo on the main street of town, camping out by a colourful backdrop as the tropical late-afternoon sun was throwing some really dramatic warmth and contrast onto the local foot-traffic. It was just a matter of watching and waiting.

More to come soon!
