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 🙂 .
This week the challenge is on BOUNDARIES. Any kind of boundary be it physical or emotional, that can be felt and understood. My muse on boundaries lies in the daily ritual of sunset. The pivotal time in the day when the sun gives way to the Midnight blue sky spotted with dim stars. Every evening i watch the sun go down and where ever i am i can feel the emotional change of the city as the streets darken, yellow street lamps flicker on street by street and the hum of night hawkers begin.
So many things happen in the twilight period when the sun and moon seem to hover in the sky, like a stretched out colour gauge the sky tones streak from hot yellow into reds into the Indigo’s and darkest Violets in the which the Moon cowers waiting for its time.
This was taken a few days ago as i stood basking in the last rays of a forgotten September sun.
Took this shot with my phone on a drive through Ikoyi Bridge. It was a lovely sunset but my phone captured something else. A man’s silhouette against a blurred out skyline shot. To see other entries in this week’s challenge click, WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – BLUR.
Lagos has never really had a beautiful( or organised) skyline. Looking up developed as a habit because the horizon never appealed to me. So i sky-gaze as a habit, especially on a beautiful day outside. Catching striking moments is what inspired the shots.
Got a little help from a friend @1mancabal. Can you spot which is his?
