Jide Alakija #4

Here is one taken by a good friend. I had help with this one. I gave quite a few poses and this one came out on top. My friend has never taken a professional interest in photography, and I have to say I'm very impressed with their efforts.

I love the angle. I wonder where your other hand is tho. I like the fact that there is a bit of mystery to the shot. You look rather insightful and it makes me wonder what you were looking at or thinking. The photographer did a great job! ... and good work on the editing too.
Jide Alakija: Help, I'm armless!!!! It's hidden in the shadow!
Jide, I am really not impressed with the layout. I have a small screen on my laptop and it is really diffcult to appreciate this view.
Jide Alakija: Ovo sir, please bear with the SC team on this issue. it's something that's being dealth with at the moment.
A wonderful study of human intelligence. So well captured. Regards, chad
Jide Alakija: Hardly but thanks!

Can I pilfer this image from you?
Mr Jide Alakija it is agreat opportunity for me to be able to view your work.

It's really hard for me to comment on any of them cause to be able to express my true feelings i will have to get words from another planet.

Once i saw this one with you i was happy to see the man behind the camera.

Everyone of your photos i have seen is amazing.

I was directed here by Jeremy Weate and i am glad i wasted no time in searching you out.He said you liked one of my pictures he uploaded on facebook, the cow.

I'm inspired by all i have seen.

Now i'll continue my tour of your work.

Thank you.
