Natural Monday: Pink Hues

Infrared Engineering Dept Unilag by rubys polaroid

Hi guys,

…..And welcome to a beautiful New Week full of deadlines, traffic, more smog a bit more rain if you happen to live in Lagos and the regular crazy-ass road hogs (also known as public transport drivers (-__-))
Today my  Nature post is an Infrared Conversion of a shot taken at my Alma Mater; University of Lagos, the Engineering Department to be precise. The building right behind the statue is a lecture hall for combined classes.

Have An Awesome Week 😀

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: 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 events 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 same 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.

Natural Monday: Sunset Strip

Hallo, and welcome to my Natural Monday post and i’ll digress here for a bit.

It’s EASTER…..Whoopeee!!!!!!!

I’m so happy for a little break coming up. I’ll get some time to myself and i’ll be able to start working on my addition to the first draft of my sci-fi novel. Actually Camp Nanowrimo for April is ongoing and sadly i’m behind but it’s never too late to start. Got any up coming Easter plans? share in the comments below 🙂
Today i’m posting sun-filled sunsets and pastel coloured cloud shots. Took them late last year when the sun set quite late and low allowing for dramatic sky lighting and orange toned clouds. Any thoughts on the

WPC: Security or Exploration?

Lightning Over Lagos 2 by rubys polaroid

The feeling of safety is something everyone wants and in every possible way. When you are inside your home, you feel safe from the elements especially when a thunderstorm is brewing overhead. Security is something that’s high on people’s list; Job security, home security etc.
This week the WPC is titled SECURITY. Show what represents security to you or what makes you feel loved and safe, i choose to show what we miss sometimes as we stay huddled in our safe houses away from the thunderstorms. Sometimes it’s good to step out of our comfort/secure zone and explore more of life and nature.

I stayed under cover (away from metal or trees), propped my camera and stood in the chilly wind hoping for a great catch of the night sky over my city; Lagos.

WPC: My Light Wish

Lekki Lagoon at Night by rubys polaroid

WPC asked for our wish, that one single thing you want to be or you want to see happen that would make you very happy or complete.
Well right now, with life rushing in the door in all its glory, i want to be like light. Yeah, i can see some heads shaking from side to side (everyone has their moments.)

I was standing outside 2 night’s ago taking this shot of the peaceful water’s surface after a storm and it’s beautiful lights inspired my wish.
It sounds like a simple wish but it not. It’s something we take for granted but it’s one of the most powerful elements in our world. Light is fast, the fastest known by which every other thing is measured against. Its can’t be held in or down by anything on our planet. It would really be awesome to be able to be anywhere you wish in an instant from the bottom of the sea to the depths of space and right now i wish i was eating hot food and basking on the lake shore looking at Mount Fuji . \(^~^)/

WEIRD FACT: You can’t scream in space. *shock face* I know right so if you are in trouble, you are on your…..own. (Sound can’t exist without a molecules to travel through i.e air or water, and there’s no air in space (except the one you carry on your back 🙂 .

WPC: The Road Taken

Trailing Lights by rubys polaroid

The Road Less Taken was the first thought in mind on seeing the WPC topic, but sometimes it can mean looking at familiar things in a different light.
Took this after a storm had passed, it’s a normal street from eye-level but from this angle it looks like so much more.
