Sometimes your environment frames your shot for you, to create that perfect moment and this is what that moment looks like. A man stands framed by the stair of a pedestrian bridge. This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge – FRAME speaks for itself.
I stumbled on this track awesome last week by Youngr titled “Out of My System,” a buoyant pop cut about having fun before settling down and growing up. He was previously part of a band called Picture Book, which performed with the likes of Labrinth (of whom i’m a huge fan)and Emeli Sandé. He also collaborated with Flight Facilities and has written for Cher.
So do you think this catchy pop song will grow on you?
Hmmmmm…this week’s challenge not so easy but hey that’s the fun part 🙂 . The challenge this week as dictated by the WPC is SPARE, use your words or pictures to show your understanding.
I decided to browse through my library of shots waiting for something to pop out screaming this word….and the result is above. The outstretched hand of a young girl’s small brown hands, with her big black eyes and eager face. She wanted something from me, anything I could Spare.
I caught this moment just as the traffic lights turned green, we shared a quiet moment before the world sped up. She must have seen this a thousand times rowdy yellow bus honks, and super slicked cars rushing her by ignoring her existence at the roadside.
Today under the Urban Category i’m featuring a shot I took with my phone recently in Obalende, Lagos. It is a very busy and ever bubbling transport hub in Lagos, home to a variety of things, its the quintessential melting pot. From here you can get a bus ( small, medium or large) going to anywhere and lets not forget the other modes of transport in Lagos.
The every slinky KeKe (Tricycle) and sometimes bikes.
The parallel line of light inspired me to take a shot through the bus window as we passed underneath on my way home.
Sorry for the late urban post guys, some work getting in the way 🙂 . Today i bring a shot of a popular street in Lagos at sunset, along with a building washed with amber rays on a Saturday.
Took this shot late last month on my way home from a wedding.
