Silence doesn’t have a sound, it’s the absence of sound. Sounds define our world, the wind rushing through car horns blaring on the street. The ever present background hum of voices, sound is everywhere but sometimes your ears go silent not because the world is silent but your soul is crying so loud for what it has lost every other sound gets drowned out.
Took this shot 2 days before the New Year, the sun was setting and it felt like the year was saying goodbye. The dusty air and cold haze acted like a blanket for the sun, and this was the only peek i had of the one of the last sunsets of 2017. Lots of wishful thinking went on in 2017 for me but i’ll try to make the most of this year (hopefully) and not spend it dreaming like last year.
Morning guys 😀 ,had a wonderful weekend talking biz and life with good friends. The WP Challenge was to show waiting, but how to do photograph a moment like that in nature.
It really got me thinking, maybe the slow drag of clouds across the sky will show the slow passing of time and the approaching sunset i was waiting for.
Waiting along a debris strewn beach for a warm sunset.
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?
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.
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?
Welcome to a new week, HAPPY MONDAY 🙂 I know quite a few people don’t like that particular greeting but a new start is always welcome even if it’s in the form of Coffee-induced Monday buzz. My muse for today is a quiet close-up of a baby Sea Shell at dusk, with every new day and every new start we need to remind ourselves of the little pleasures and evergreen beauty around us (even if our phones ring non-stop and our deadlines never seem to end).
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.
