Flatline Skyline

Lagos has never really had a beautiful( or organised) skyline. Looking up developed as a habit because the horizon never appealed to me. So i sky-gaze as a habit, especially on a beautiful day outside. Catching striking moments is what inspired the shots.
Got a little help from a friend @1mancabal. Can you spot which is his?


Unilag Old, New Alumni

Walking around my new alumni school and memories flood in, the seeming endless gate cab queues, walking to the Main library, Senate area, the ever popular Lagoon Front (which by the way is right next to my former department). As much as i was in a hurry to leave, in a part of my mind I didn’t want the memories to wane cause they are the reason I am who I am today.

Dark Descent

Lone Star by rubys polaroid
Lone Star by rubys polaroid
Lone Star
Free falling, falling, falling
as through air
closing my eyes to see
what vision awaits me
Reality’s out-stretched hand
fading like a dream
misty winds howl past
hurtling at the speed of thought
a descent into tarturus
Shrill Screams of caged minds,
jarring my eyes open at the last second
as my body turns into an embrace
of stony poseidon


Descent is the topic of this week’s challenge. My photo was taken by descending into a roadside drain, my poem expresses a descent of the mind into scream filled enclaves.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Night Lights of Unilag

Inspired by WordPress weekly photo challange, went out to capture my little zone with as much night as i can possibly muster.



A montage of images and flashes with no discernable train of thought.




Nothing really comes to mind, except snatches of images passing through my mind’s eye. Simple but insightful is what i see. What do you see?



In View of Henry Carr

To every coin face there is the other side, that guides a principle of thought that says to the familiar there is also the unknown. What happens when you portray the familiar as the unknown, it only leads the people who know the familiar to step back, disassociate and then reconnect. For the reason of time spent in a place it becomes the familiar, but it doesn’t mean you can’t appreciate it even more when portrayed as the unknown. I took pictures of places that are familiar to me, as tho it was the unknown leading my friends to re access the places they thought had no potential to surprise or interest them.

I hope as you scroll through you appreciate as I and some friends have come to re-appreciate.


My Nostalgia of Unilag

Feeling the nostalgic urge to document my views of unilag the way i know it, i embarked on a walk around my university taking shots of places i know well.
