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.
Been awhile i posted to this awesome challenge but no more excuses 😀 . The theme is TEXTURE, i did a BW Conversion of a pic i took on a recent Nature Walk.

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.
This is one of those rare moments i brought my camera along with no inkling i’ll get to use it. Dusk was in the air when i left the cinemas with my friends and just as we where about to say goodbye i thought “wouldn’t it be nice to take a bridge shot?’
No necessarily a smart idea being that it was getting dark fast but what the heck this opportunity comes once in a blue moon, so i pulled them up the pedestrian bridge to stand with me as i took quick shots.
So i’m posting it for Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge titled LIGHTS. The dimming sun, white car lights and orange street lights all in one photo 😀 .
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 🙂 .
Hallo peeps and welcome to a Black and White Tuesday.
I usually post my BW for Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge on Tuesdays. For a while now it’s been an alphabet run and i missed out on previous letter titles but this week to make up 🙂 i did a double L title..lool.
Not intentionally tho.
This image was a passing thought at the time, what i really wanted in my shot where the city lights on the water but after that i said why not lets do a long exposure shot as well with this former impedance as the main focus and it surprisingly turned out great. What do you think?
The challenge topic is the letters C & D, anything or place starting with those letters. My pick is the letter D for DOVE 🙂 . This is a local pigeon specie in my area, and the full name is Laughing Dove Pigeon.
I took an even closer shot showing the head in detail – HERE.
