Discarded and Forgotten

Right I've finally got round to getting a new cable today which I'm sorry to say I paid too much for. £14.99!!!! for a piece of wire! Crazy.

This is one I took on the day I was leaving Lagos, I decided that I'd taken too many people and street photos and it was time to do some more people-less images and more colourful ones. Lagos is a very colour town I've concluded because I was able to get quite a few colourful images without any stress.

And this is another I need help titling....Thanks Dammie for titling yesterdays image.

There is something sad and lonely about this photo. How about "Discarded and Forgotten" or just either word by itself.

It is a crime that those cables don't last longer for the price they cost. I recently discovered that my speedlight can be used wireless with my camera and can be operated off camera without extra wires or hardware...just the pop-up flash to command it off camera, really cool feature. The pop-up can be used as additional flash or fill or just to control the remote flash independent of the pop-up. I was really excited when I discovered it could do that only about a month ago...you learn something new every day.
Jide Alakija: Thanks Laurie....I like your title.

Nice shot. I remember that, flower...I dropped it when she said no...oh it was a very painful day...oh the inhumanity...oh the pain.
Hiya Jide and many compliments (belatedly) for the festive season.
A nice splash of beauty among the dark tones of earth. Nice shot indeed. Very many good wishes for 2007 and continued success for your photography and Shutterchance. Many regards, Neil.

Love the pattern of light and shadow and the bit of color among all that brown texture. Nice shot!
