Hide and seek

At last the summer is here at least in England, but it's brought with it the rains. Somehow I don't really mind, as long as it's not too cold. The rains keep it cool. I can't stand extreme temperatures both cold and hot.

I want to lift things up a bit on my photoblog by i) Posting more regularly i.e. daily and ii) Posting more interesting images. I haven't been as consistent as I would have liked.

This is a shot from my Ikorodu series

It's odd, but I found myself mostly looking into those sad eyes on the background, not at the smily girl.

The eyes of the second child drag you in. Great shot.

This is a shot with lots of personality but its overprocessed. What did you do to the teeth?!?!

I like seeing your reflection in their eyes, do you do something to get this to show clearly?
Jide Alakija: No it's just a hot sunny day. She has lovely reflective eyes!
