Another long day at work, well helping out Asiko and now I'm too tired to say anything, it's easier to post up a shot and in an area I've not looked into for a while, Photos from Nigeria.

Please tell me what you think of this one.

It definitely has a story to tell, Jide, and therefore is very powerful to me. I wonder what he sees and what he's thinking!
Jide Alakija: LOL...that's an interesting "wonder", I think a lot of us are like this every once in a while.

I like this shot. I think it's the color that really makes this photo. At least for me.
Jide Alakija: I take it that you are referring to the toning? That's very good of you to have spotted that. Thanks
This has such a mood of loneliness. The large expanse of space and the body language of the man portray sadness or loneliness to me.
Jide Alakija: Thanks Mary, don't you read frustration or relaxation or even "I don't care" in this one?

WOW... the guy looks sick. Like he's stuck on some sand dune and is dying of starvation. It actually makes me sad, this photo. Well captured. Where was this taken?
Jide Alakija: THanks Aibee, it was taken on bar beach, Lagos, Nigeria.
i'll bet that you're about tired of hearing positive comments about your work! grin
