Morning guys šŸ˜€ ,

Welcome to the last Monday of beautiful August, by the way i didn’t get an August visitor but i got a lot of things this month. Top of my wishlist was a new Wide Angle Lens for Architectural Photography, and it was a beauty. Took it out for a spin and my recent WPC post – Ooh Shiny Sky Bridge shot was also taken with it.
A day out at the Lekki Conservation Centre Cont’d.

Enjoy

and

Cheers to the New Week ā¤

Natural Monday: Sunset Satisfaction

Blue, Blue Skies by rubys polaroid

Satisfaction is such a wide term cause it means so many things to different people but i’ll narrow my answer down to my daily inspiration and passion: PHOTOGRAPHY.
There are a dime and dozen photographers all over but the most important thing to any endeavor is the happiness and contentment you feel when you take a picture that takes your own breath away and that’s how i feel when i happen to catch a beautiful sunset. They happen everyday (well almost everyday…some days the clouds are really grey and angry -_-) ) but they are never the same. The sun sets in a different place everyday and the clouds will never be in the same place as yesterday.

That’s my own take on the WordPress Photo Challenge for this week. What gives you your daily/weekly dose of satisfaction?

Natural Monday: Green Landscapes

Morning guys, and welcome to a new month
…even more so to the 2nd half of 2017.

Going on trips has a way of expanding your mind beyond what you think you know. Always new possibilities and new experiences. Took a trip recently sponsored by Legacy1995ng and I’ve a ton of pics to share from it but to start, here are some landscape shots to start the week, month and rest of the year on a beautiful note.

WPC: Fading Sunset

Glass Ball Sunset 2 by rubys polaroid

The waves of the lagoon are ever changing, the sun forever in a cycle of rise and fall.
The challenge this week is to show change in a still shot and I captured 2 eternal motions on our planet with a single other subject; A Glass Ball for contrast.

WPC: Sacred Heritage

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.

The Sleeping Man by rubys polaroid

How’s your week going and has sleep ever caught you with your head down… literally šŸ™‚ .

WPC: Beach Wanderlust

Where have i been lately? Well for one quite busy with a good friend’s wedding and the Open House Lagos Weekend Project. Two eventsĀ close to my heart, Weddings are always a bubble of emotions and it makes it all the more touching when they were both my classmates throughout my Bachelors Degree and also colleagues in Masters at the sameĀ University.
The theme for WPC is Wanderlust, bring out shots that inspire the traveler in us. Well i haven’t traveled out of state of recent so i’ll be posting a beach shot i took during my few moments alone in nature. Nature shots always have that lost in time quality that make us feel the moment even if we are miles away and i hope this shots do just the same.

Thursday Fashion: David Tlale

Morning guys, and how is your week going? Did you stop by for some lovely music on my post yesterday, if you didn’t you can take a quick look HERE.
This post has been languishing in my draft box since January…. i know, terrible right?
The second part in my David Tlale Fashion Collection exhibited at last year’s GTB FASHION WEEKEND. So here it is in all its monochrome splendour. I’m biased to any cool looking BW scheme but this is taking a cool mix to a whole new level of luxury.

Enjoy.
