Morning peeps…..sigh it’s been too long since i made a proper post.
Doing a personal mind cleanup so i can have more thinking time this year(blogging time), but lets jump into the title of today’s post. I’ve always loved a good BW image that can make you stop in your tracks and if you’ve been tracking my Instagram Page you’ll notice my minimalist trend.
Architecture is the theme, high-rises the medium. Enjoy 😀
What better way to host a Halloween party than at an abandoned secretariat with several high-rises in a large expanse of land close to a cemetery, lol.
This is my submission for Cee’s BW Photo Challenge with the theme- ABANDONED/ALONE.
This is just one arm of the large complex, its been abandoned for close to 26 years ever since the seat of the Federal Government moved in 1991 form Lagos to Abuja which was carved out of other states and designed to be the centre of power; The Civil Servant state.
Hi guys, how was your week? have you started on the ever long Christmas Shopping list.
It’s just 8days to Christmas *big grin*, that means work break and lots to eat and drink. Parties and gathering around every corner, by far the most tedious part of the year (-__-) .
This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge is ASCEND. My take on it goes with the endless cycle of New Year goals or Resolution. Ascending from one level to another takes focus (inner compass) to stay on track and make it to the top.
My shot shows what it feels like to stand at the beginning and see your end goal all the way up there.
What’s your take on goal setting / New year Resolutions?
What??? *exaggerated shock face* That has got to be some silly idea I came up with as a millennial. (I imagine that’s what flashed through your head when you read the title.)
….In all honesty really think about that title again………thought about it? Sadly that’s the truth.
You’ll never be at one job all the days of your breathing life, no job or position or title or place (yes, places evolve over time) is permanent. We grow and change, our needs grow and change. So we have to decide what do we want out of that place/job? and make sure we get it when it’s time to leave, and that’s how I choose to interpret this week’s WPC theme: Temporary.
Above is a picture of my old desk, in the span of a few days I changed desks and time and place. Same me but now with a different desk.
In what way have you exchanged something or somewhere old for a new one, share in the comments.
Have a lovely week ahead
Here’s a link to the WPC post to see more entries.
Today’s monochrome photo challenge theme by Cee is on WHEELS, well i indeed got a shot of wheels but not in your conventional way.
The art work in the shot depicting a Bull is made up of used Tyres and sits on the Tyre rim, so technically is a picture of wheels (Tyres and Rim) 🙂 .
I took this shot last year at the GTB Fashion Weekend Event, outside the main hall was an outdoor sales area/food court and beautiful art works like these where placed all around.
Today i’ll be posting a street shot taken in CBD, Lagos. I’ve always been fascinated by street photography but my shy nature makes me the sneak-a-pic type of street photographer. In the shot is an old man poised in-between two trees mid-crossing at noon.

Heritage “valued objects and qualities such as historic buildings and cultural traditions that have been passed down from previous generations.”
Lagos has heritage, Culture and a Resilient people who have seen history and left their mark in so many ways. Historic buildings and sites litter the bustling city of Lagos and i had a great opportunity to visit them during the Open House Lagos 2017 Event. The SACRED SITES TOUR, even though short was a real eye opener.
The Holy Cross Cathedral is credited with being the birth place of Catholicism in Nigeria.
Check the link below on it’s birth and history of Catholicism in Nigeria.
It’s something common to all men, it comes naturally and it’s very demanding. It gives signs but sometimes it catches you unawares and that can be very dangerous.
I’m doing a double post for 2 of my favorite WordPress challenges; WPC and Cee’s BW Challenge.
How’s your week going and has sleep ever caught you with your head down… literally 🙂 .
