Photograph: “In goat we trust…” by Sohail Karmani (username “Sohail Karmani” on Flickr).

Originally shared on the Photofocus Flickr community right here.

Why I picked this image: How could I have not picked this image? This image was captured by Sohail in Pakistan and shows a scene that he encountered on the street. Two men riding on a motorcycle carrying two goats on their lap by itself is something that would grab my attention as I don’t ever see this on my streets. But the driver of the motorcycle is giving us that “why do you find this interesting” look. The passenger has a smirk on his face and holds the goat in one and a cigaret relaxed in the other hand. And finally the one goat that is facing us has this “hey look at me” attitude look on its face.

Technically the image is also perfect with enough motion blur to show the speed at which the motorcycle is driving.

I like this image so much that I can not stop looking at it. This is an iconic documentary image for me. I am deeply impressed Sohail!

  1. This is one of the best! Look at the expressions on the faces of the people and even the goat! If you like puns, in English anyway, you could title it – “Got your goat?”

About Marco Larousse

My name is Marco Larousse and I'm a journalist and a fine art street and documentary photographer - www.MarcoLarousse.com. I have a background in photography of about 30 years and the power of telling a story with only one image keeps me motivated and fascinated every day. My approach to photography is "reduce to the basics". Growing up with the limitations that film photography has tought me, I still enjoy the basic approach to photography today. The camera is my tool, a mere extension of my instincts to capture what I want how I want it. I am one of the hosts of the Photofocus.com Podcast ( #mirrorless and #inspiration shows). I am also a speaker and writer for photography related topics. You can follow me on twitter @HamburgCam
