Carnival 2006 #20: The spirit

Sorry guys....I'm tired and have nothing on the computer blog worthy.

Will you make up yor mind, what happened to the fat guy? smile

Cool, you and Mal have the same kinda idea today

Jide Alakija: Changed my mind. It wasn't blog worthy! smile
I love this piece, I see a lot of depth.

but this is creative!
its most unlike what you would normally put up
Jide Alakija: Thanks Deji, I would love to put up more creative shots. I think I've become too cultured inmy work and I don't like that. I like my work to be quite varied. What do you expect? What is normal on my blog? I anticipate your response.
I had to check my address bar to be sure I was on alakija's photoblog...but I am and I am proud to say he has shifted from the norm..haha. I like it oh.
Jide Alakija: LOL....I've always wanted to put this up sometime back but I didn't want to bore you all with too many carnival images. This shot is typical of what I want to put on my photoblog. I don't know if I've executed it well though.

It's interesting that people have an expectation of what thay want to see on my photoblog, what do you expect to see on Alakija.com? I anticipate your response. Thanks.

Not sure what is not creative about this. great stuff. I can hear Mal in the dark mask and the black cape.
Jide Alakija: Thanks Nev.
Jide Alakija: lol..thanks.
I expect to see colour (loads of colour) OR mono/duotone (exquisite mono/duotone)inside a portrait that isnt like something u've seen before...then u'll say hmm there's something about this picture...ohhhhh its Alakija.com. As u can see...with this picture u've had 163 hits and only 8 comments...so not Alakijaish

Then again dont allow us box u into portraits o!!!
Jide Alakija: That's very very interesting. I never really thought that my portraits gave that impression, so you are telling me that you want to see more portraits? I'm there thinking that there are way too many on my photoblog, I need to get back to what I used to do.
yup, deifnitely different from your normal stuff...i like it,,.,
Jide Alakija: Thanks Sam.
Attractive image Jide. The blur shows off the movemnet really well.
Jide Alakija: Thanks Chris.

A bit of movement and action make this a fine shot. I'm not too sure about her expression, though. She almost looks in pain smile
