WPC: Jobs are Temporary

My Attita Desk by rubys polaroid
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

WPC: Ooh Shiny Sky Bridge

Steel Canopy Walkway Lagos by rubys polaroid

Its not often one gets to sway high in the air over a thick swamp forest. Well on a whim this past Friday i decided to go explore a local tourist spot in Lekki Lagos; Lekki Conservation Centre with the mind of walking the very much talked about Canopy Walkway.

OOOO….my GOD.

I’ll let the above exclamation define the experience. At a whooping 401 meters long (1315.62 Foot long) and at the highest point 22.5 meters high (73.8 foot high) it’s the longest Canopy Walkway in Africa and Second longest in the world…..Yikes!. In most cases i just shrug at the numbers and say i can’t be all that but on Friday i held my tongue right back, affixing it to the roof of my mouth throughout the walk….mostly anyway.
If you ain’t got mind don’t bother as you literally swing through the air, if your walking companions aren’t great on their feet. Luckily my group consisted of i and my troublesome friend Toyin, an old well rounded couple with the woman being of better courage than the man and a friendly guide that held his belly deep laughter throughout whilst walking without touching the rope. That was just plain cheating in my opinion *__*) .

Somewhere after crossing the first walkway i grew a second liver right under the quivering first and actually paused severally at the middle of 4 of the seven walkways to take shots 😀 . Below is a shot of the end of one of the several walkways, its really shiny steel and a marvel of design but i thought that up right when i got back to flat, un-moving ground  -__-) .

So, after listening to my Adventrue (Ordeal) what Shiny thing caught your eye of recent?

Natural Monday: Baby Sea Shell

Baby Shell by rubys polaroid

Welcome to a new week, HAPPY MONDAY 🙂
I know quite a few people don’t like that particular greeting but a new start is always welcome even if it’s in the form of Coffee-induced Monday buzz.
My muse for today is a quiet close-up of a baby Sea Shell at dusk, with every new day and every new start we need to remind ourselves of the little pleasures and evergreen beauty around us (even if our phones ring non-stop and our deadlines never seem to end).

WPC/Cee BW Challenge: Signs of Sleep

The Sleeping Man by rubys polaroid

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 🙂 .

WPC: DANGER

WPC: Rain Drop Surprises

Rain Drop Diamonds by rubys Polaroid

Happy Easter

It’s in the holiday spirit that i’m posting a rain inspired shot. Its been raining alot in Lagos the past week one can’t help thinking they are showers of blessings to go along with the Easter tones of repentance and hope.
Photography is a thing of guts, sometimes you just know a shot will look good you might not know how good but sometimes you shot surprises you more than you could have thought. My shot at first glance was ordinary but when i converted it to Monochrome it really stood out. Have you been surprised by something unexpectedly good of recent?

WPC: Dense Verdant

Dense Leaves by rubys polaroid

Green is the colour of nature, it’s the colour we associated with life and all plants even if they aren’t totally green.
The WordPress challenge was DENSE.
Take a photo that shows texture and depth, so much so that you can feel it through the image. I took this shot awhile back just after a short, heavy downpour. The leaves where wet and all the dust washed off with the rains leaving a vivid green bed of pines, the little pop of yellow is the leaf from a nearby tree blown off during the rain.
My entry is a week late but it’s never to late to post a wonderful picture 🙂 .

Natural Monday: Pigeon

It’s not everyday you get up close and personal with a pigeon, and also some time for portraits and side shots..lol but i did and i was so lucky that day. This is a local bird specie and even through it’s a pigeon its real name is The Laughing Dove Pigeon (I’ve never seen one smile much less laugh so the name has never made sense to me), maybe it was a joke amongst the Ornithologists. (- its a branch of zoology that concerns the study of birds)
