WPC: Framed Man

Sometimes your environment frames your shot for you, to create that perfect moment and this is what that moment looks like. A man stands framed by the stair of a pedestrian bridge.
This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge – FRAME speaks for itself.

Streets of Lagos: Sunset on Ozumba

Sorry for the late urban post guys, some work getting in the way 🙂 . Today i bring a shot of a popular street in Lagos at sunset, along with a building washed with amber rays on a Saturday.
Took this shot late last month on my way home from a wedding.

Awolowo Road Underpass

The vastness of built structures has always fascinated me. The sheer height and strength was my muse for this urban post dedicated to a bridge i pass everyday to work.

Took this shot with my phone on a drive through Ikoyi Bridge. It was a lovely sunset but my phone captured something else. A man’s silhouette against a blurred out skyline shot. To see other entries in this week’s challenge click, WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – BLUR.

Inquisitive Crow

Sorry that I didn’t post anything yesterday guys, I was under the weather. On to today’s monochrome Tuesday post,  I stumbled on this bird quite by accident recently and had the luck of getting pretty close. Hopefully I captured a bit of his (I think it’s a he) curious spirit 🙂 .

Photo101: Wk 2 Collage

This is my catch up post for the WordPress Photo-blogging Month of November.
Week two of Photography 101 blogging gave up 5 topics to explore with pictures. I merged all 5 shots into a collage of pictures big and small, light to dark.
The pictures follow these topics: Mystery, Warmth, Landmark, Natural World, Connect.

Mystery: I tried to work with a nighttime shot. My first few lunar pics where terrible but I got the hang of it and made out a nice moon shot with the environment.

Warmth: A rising sun was the concept. Took an early morning shot at about 6:45 G.M.T +1.

Landmark: A very new and popular bridge that links Ikoyi and Lekki in Lagos, Nigeria.

Natural World: A still dragonfly was the perfect muse to use to symbolize nature at its best.

Connect: Not an easy topic by any means, I had to look hard but I found a thorny flowering plant branch that had webs connecting it to other branches forming an almost invisible connection at its farthest point.
