Theme #1:Bananas, Brent inspired

For the sake of the theme this is the best I could come up with. I had to stop at the grocery store at 1am to do this. Okay I'm not desperate, I was actually stuck in traffic today on my way back home from North London and I didn't get out until about 1am. Okay off to bed now.

For those of you locals here in London, I'd like to introduce you to "SoulLoveSunday". It's an installment by "yinkavelli" and co. You into a smooth vibe, lovely Neo Soul groove then check it out. I'll be there....with my camera on Sunday.

Best of all it's FREE!!!

I am intrigued as to what the grocery man thought you were doing? This is a super shot Jide it has a tension within due to the clever use of framing and the angle the image sits at. B&W again your'e not moving over to the dark side buddy are you, I have posted a pic for you and another blogger unfortunately you link was missed out but I shall attempt to correct if I get time this am...

Take care and have a wild soul Love Sunday, I shall expect great things!!!

Lovely lovely shot. I wondered how many people would do b&w interpretations...I should have guessed you would!

p.s. not sure you've tagged this the same way as others. I get 12 results for 'Theme1' but not yours.
