Yellowy September

Morning peeps, how did your weekend go? Mine was pretty short and i think I still need more sleep *yawn*.
Anywho today is Natural Monday, so I picked a bright sunny yellow flower to start the week on a bright note. It was a bit of a challenge as flowers with single colour tones mostly have burn out or bright spots if photographed in full sunlight.
I waited for a cloudy day and just after the drizzle I took these shots.

I’m always open to great photography advice, if you’ve got ideas go over to the comments and share 😀

P.S – I recently enrolled for Blogging 201, its one of WordPress Blogging Courses you can read up on them HERE. so for the next 2/3 weeks my blogging schedule will change.


Moving Portraiture

Juxtaposing man and a mountain was the idea for this images. Can they conquer by sheer pose or will it be a try unto futility.

It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves.

Christ is Risen. Those words are the buzz words right now in the media world as Christians all over celebrate Easter Monday today. A beautiful sunset seems like a perfect tribute to this holiday, took this on my last morning of Nysc Camp last November in Iseyin, Oyo State, Nigeria.

Happy Easter Everyone

2014 in Collage

This was 2014 in my most popular pictures, from a bird shot at the No 1 spot to water refractions, then at 3rd place was  a monochrome sky in dreamy mode.

Fourth was a week’s photo collage ( A Landmark, Warmth, Nature, Connections and Mystery) in a WordPress Blogging U course on photography, finally it’s my city in splashes of Yellow that was the theme of the post.

What in these pictures made you like and comment so much?. An awesome year it was, that was the year I started this blog and got to meet people who inspired my creativity.

Will be posting on my new year resolutions tomorrow. What are yours?


Repost: City of Yellow

This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge theme is on the colour Yellow. A very vivid and un-ignorable colour, aptly used for things or places of importance. I’m reposting this to remind myself why I love this city, so chaotically organised and so alive.

Colours are our entire world, this little blue wet rock would be dead without the vivid hues and colours that surround us. Be it in the dark blues of moonlit nights to the warm yellow of signs and noisy buses, it makes us who we are.

Read a poem about colours recently which made me appreciate my sight all the more. Maybe its all in my mind. Read the inspiring post HERE.

Yellow is symbolic in Lagos, from the noisy buses to the crossings that bear the trodden yellow. Its a vivid colour that can’t be ignored, how does Yellow affect your world. Tell me all about it in your comments.
