Cee’s Black and White Challenge: Stadium

I don’t think i’ll quite get over the Holiday backlash of every passing year…..WHY! WHY!! Aren’t the holidays a little longer. (sigh)
Today i’m posting from my NYSC Archives for this Black&White Challenge, taken in the run up to my Passing Out Parade of my Youth Corp Program.  Check the link to see other cool submissions and i’ll see you tomorrow 🙂 for a dose of Midweek Music. Ciao

Jump into The Week

So…..its not my usual Monday post but everyone has that Monday morning where they drag themselves outta bed by their feet, do the motions for the day while their brain is half asleep. Yup, i had that Monday today…sigh
  It was for a good cause, i attended the just concluded #GTBFashionWeekend (Saturday and Sunday). The line up was for Enterprise in all its forms, from showcasing art to fashion to hosting business and fashion Master-Classes. It was well and truly packed with stuff to see and hear. I attended a Master-Class hosted by Tracy Reese ( For those who don’t know she has been responsible for clothing US First Lady Michelle Obama to at least 14 events)got to know her background and listened to some business advice and also the Fashion Show (which was really cool 🙂 )for that i’ll be posting the shots taken on Thursdays now.
To welcome you guys into a new week and wake myself up from my #MondayHaze, here’s a moment caught on camera of a man in uniform checking his shoe out 😀

Have a lil laugh and have a great week ahead 🙂

Monochrome Tuesday with a twist. My photography muse today was a shot taken in camp. Played around with it by selectively allowing some areas retain their original look.

Let me know what you think in your comments. Cheers 😀

Points of view matter in your perception of our world. It determines what is right and what is wrong. The perfect perspective is an illusion as much as the perfect picture. Its all a matter of perception.
