The week is finally over, on Wednesday morning as i peeled open my eyes to bright unwelcome sunlight, i felt like skipping over Thursday and Friday just to get to Saturday but Thursday came and i had a lil excursion/ Trip with a good friend and after a really long time i got to exercise my photography muscles and free my thoughts. Which brings us to today.
This blog was first a tester of my new camera then a therapy now i want it to a mini gallery of the photos i take that don’t fall into Architecture, which my Instagram account is for. If you haven’t checked it out, you are really missing great Archi shots of Lagos 🙂
Shameless Instagram Plug – @RubysPolaroid To start off will be posting a little docu series on life in a slum boating community in Lagos.
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.
What??? *exaggerated shock face* That has got to be some silly idea I came up with as a millennial. (I imagine that’s what flashed through your head when you read the title.)
….In all honesty really think about that title again………thought about it? Sadly that’s the truth.
You’ll never be at one job all the days of your breathing life, no job or position or title or place (yes, places evolve over time) is permanent. We grow and change, our needs grow and change. So we have to decide what do we want out of that place/job? and make sure we get it when it’s time to leave, and that’s how I choose to interpret this week’s WPC theme: Temporary.
Above is a picture of my old desk, in the span of a few days I changed desks and time and place. Same me but now with a different desk.
In what way have you exchanged something or somewhere old for a new one, share in the comments.
Have a lovely week ahead
Here’s a link to the WPC post to see more entries.
I admit it’s been awhile since i’ve posted. The blues are no respecter of person and my blog has suffered for it, maybe that’s why i’m posting this track today as a lil pick-me-up for a bad case of midweek blues.
Hope you have Have a Great Week ❤

…And the hustle resumes. Welcome to a new week and a new Monday, how was your weekend? I’ve just got one shot to share before i dash backing to the groove of work and it’s of my favorite flowers *wink*. If you guessed Pink Bougainvilleas, you got it 🙂 . Don;t know how they fascinate me so much considering i dislike the colour Pink *cringe*. Enjoy the view and join me tomorrow for a Black and White Themed Tuesday 🙂 ciao!!!
Solitude is not Loneliness. In this super-connected age sometimes it’s a great idea to unplug and have time to recharge our minds, souls and plans. A time to listen to what your heart has been screaming it’s self hoarse in a bid to get your attention from your phone, friends, work and life’s troubles and worries.
Those who fail to retrospect, repeat all their mistakes.
So in line with this week’s Daily Post’s Challenge: Solitude, i’m posting a shot i took of a policeman who was deep in thought under a bridge. He took a very comfy pose and i guess he was thinking about something i’ll never know about.
Have you ever had time to yourself to think through your past actions or past plans that went awry? If you have’t you should. You just might find the cause or reason you’ve been searching high and low for.
