The week is finally over, on Wednesday morning as i peeled open my eyes to bright unwelcome sunlight, i felt like skipping over Thursday and Friday just to get to Saturday but Thursday came and i had a lil excursion/ Trip with a good friend and after a really long time i got to exercise my photography muscles and free my thoughts. Which brings us to today.
This blog was first a tester of my new camera then a therapy now i want it to a mini gallery of the photos i take that don’t fall into Architecture, which my Instagram account is for. If you haven’t checked it out, you are really missing great Archi shots of Lagos 🙂
Shameless Instagram Plug – @RubysPolaroid To start off will be posting a little docu series on life in a slum boating community in Lagos.
Hmmmmm…this week’s challenge not so easy but hey that’s the fun part 🙂 . The challenge this week as dictated by the WPC is SPARE, use your words or pictures to show your understanding.
I decided to browse through my library of shots waiting for something to pop out screaming this word….and the result is above. The outstretched hand of a young girl’s small brown hands, with her big black eyes and eager face. She wanted something from me, anything I could Spare.
I caught this moment just as the traffic lights turned green, we shared a quiet moment before the world sped up. She must have seen this a thousand times rowdy yellow bus honks, and super slicked cars rushing her by ignoring her existence at the roadside.
