Thursday Sunset: Glass Ball

Glass Ball Sunset by rubys polaroid

It’s not the end of the day till the sun sets, and that goes without saying.
So when last did you sit and enjoy a beautiful sunset. We are so focused on the grind that we lose touch, slow down and appreciate the little things sometimes everything doesn’t have to be in focus to be beautiful.

It’s #TGIF tomorrow, any plans for the upcoming long weekend?

Cee’s BW Challenge: Lagos Lagoon

Lagos Lagoon at Night BW by rubys polaroid

Hallo peeps and welcome to a Black and White Tuesday.
I usually post my BW for Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge on Tuesdays. For a while now it’s been an alphabet run and i missed out on previous letter titles but this week to make up ๐Ÿ™‚ i did a doubleย L title..lool.
Not intentionally tho.

This image was a passing thought at the time, what i really wanted in my shot where the city lights on the water but after that i said why not lets do a long exposure shot as well with this former impedance as the main focus and it surprisingly turned out great. What do you think?

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 ๐Ÿ™‚
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


Natural Monday: Beach Bamboo

Hi guys, its been awhile since i posted on Monday. My sincerest apologies, i was so caught up with taking shots with my new gear ๐Ÿ™‚ time passed and i forgot to upload frequently.
Let me confess there’s been some photography techniques I’ve wanted to try for the longest time, one of which is Long Exposure Photography. There’s just something about them, it captures extended time and creates surreal images and with my new gear it’s within my grasp ๐Ÿ™‚ .

This is my first Long Exposure Sunset Shot of bamboo shoots along the beach, hopefully as the sunsets get better into the year i’ll be able to show you a side of Lagos few people get to see. The horizon was dusty but i love the milky white waves ๐Ÿ™‚ .ย Comments and suggestions are always welcome ๐Ÿ™‚ .


WPC: BW Beach Waves

‘Better late than never’ is a worn out saying but as is the thing with ancient words they never lose their meaning. This post was supposed to come out on Tuesday as a double dose of WPC and Cee’s BW Photo Challenge: Liquid…..but oh well *shrugs*.
So here and now i bring to you my take on the water theme in my favorite medium; Black and White.

Took my camera out on a cold, windy day. The storm was right around the corner, perfect for wave shots ๐Ÿ™‚ but mehn my knees took a hard one trying to stay still aenough to take them. By the way this where all handheld shots.

Forces of Nature: Rain Storm

Its not often you get to experience a rain storm from a distance, Mother Nature in all her windy fury painted the horizon in colours fit for a great painting of a storm. The Rainy Season just started in Lagos so i’ll be experiencing this first hand soon. Cold and Wet is not my favourite feeling but its always a respite from the highs of the heat.
