Vincent Ouma: Nyanlanda Boda boda

Boda boda in Western Kenya refers to bicycle taxi drivers. Nyanlanda is a slum neighborhood in Kisumu, Kenya, and this photo captures the scene perfectly-- both the stillness of a hot afternoon and the bustling happenings of the town. The way the boda boda is sitting in the foreground and the matatu (bus) is whizzing past will resonate with anyone who has spent time in a small African town.
