Feel the laughter

Not feeling too inspired today and not in the best of moods hence this is up late and finally not the best of images but I had to put something up and I haven't put up a Nigerian picture for sometime now.

Please excuse the blown highlights, there's something about his laugh that caught my attention anyway I hope it puts a smile on your faces as its has mine.

Have a fab weekend guys.

Made me smile. Like shot smile

An extremely bust Suby that if Sinem finds out I am taking a quick visit to Shutterchance would kill me as I'm supposed to be getting ready to go out for the last leg of planning and spending
Great expression! I want to hear the joke now.

What a great smile! Very inspiring.
The smile is just awesome, but in my mind the blur stuff in the foreground disturbs a bit. smile
