The best so far - 64

I made it!! I've posted over 200 shots!

When I started this photoblog I was really scared that I wouldn't be able to produce the kind of shots that used to take me weeks to produce. I guess I've proven myself worng as I just realised that I had posted 200 images since then. To celebrated that fact I've decided to do the usual Photoblog thing of posting the 64 best shots since I started photoblogging late last year.

Yeah it's also a kop out as I don't have anything to post today.

Thanks for visiting my photoblog guys.

More tomorrow.

Breaking records and hitting milestones... like some french Arsenal striker I knowsmile

Congrats Pastor... U know this achievement extends far beyond duration and number of photos posted. Ur blog has created, and sustained, a family [this community of bloggers]. Na u be Don Corleone!

The variety in the 64 shots u've selected is also testament to ur wealth of creativity. In the words of a famous man, "ME LIKEY!"grin

ps: what makes these ur 64 best?

Hey dude,

My question on yesterday's photo was more educational, for my benefit... was wondering why the compostion works the way it does - with her face in just the corner of the shot, and the big "emptiness" in the remainder of the shot? What makes that effective?
Congrats mate!

Lovely collage : yes even I saw someone else just got to 200 but I don't remember who...congrats and here's to another 300!
We don't think we will ever regret to have stumbled across your blog some time ago. Simply because we can never imagine that you will ever start posting any bad pixels ;-)! Keep on inspiring us and posting these gorgeous pictures...

Congrats Bro. Glad to have been on this journey with you, I have learned a lot from you myself. Keep blogging and keep taking more wonderful shots. We will be there to say another congrats at the next 200.

I know the shots are your best 64, out of OVER 200. But looking back at all your images, I think you made a big mistake. We should be seeing OVER 200 images in this montage. All your shots have been "favourites/best shots". YUP THEY ARE ALL THAT GOOD.


Aaaaahhhhhh, now you stole my idea for a post like this. Darn the Alakija man smile

Well done Jide, i've enjoyed your site since i first came across it. You've amassed quite a collection of images, that i'm sure will continue to grow in style, impact and quality. I hope we get the chance to meet up for some shots in the near future. Regards, Chuks
