Street photography can feel daunting, especially when there is so much going on. Digital photography has lessened this problem, as you're less constrained as to how many shots you take, but it can still seem really easy to miss things.
It feels especially so when you're in a festival/carnival-like atmosphere, with thousands of people all around. Just being in the right place at the right time can appear an impossible task.
But stick with it, and streets can offer some of the most alive, interesting, and unusual settings for a photographer to ply his trade.
This photo was taken by me on the streets of Kenema, Sierra Leone, during a political rally for the "Green" Sierra Leone People's Party.
