Skee, A portait

I just managed to get an internet connection at the hotel I am staying in. They have a really weird charging system. It's 5GBP for one hour, 10GBP for 24 hours or 30GBP for a week. It's really rubbish when you think about it because I really don't need that much internet. Paying for one hour just seems wrong and paying for 24 just seems a waste.

This is another photographer on the chance. Infact this is the chap that has mentored and inspired me mostly at the beginning stages on my own journey. Check out his work

the skeeeee!

absolutely love his work

you've captured him well btw

(as if i for yarn another tin berore wink)
A handsome guy with a cap and his camera - seated on a nicely broken-in leather sofa. Finish the scene with a deliciously complex storefront as backdrop. Place a talented photographer with his own camera in front of all of this - and have him push the button. See - isn't this easy. Nice!

This portrait is hot! I like how the camera is just resting on his lap. The processing is good here as well. Great work!
Jide, I Just love this Shot, It's Skee-tas-tic, and that's not just because it a pic of me.
You are the only one allowed to posts shots of me without my permission, cough....

We really had fun this day, I'm sure this sofa cost a bomb and we where eventually booted of it by the owner lol.

In yrs from now we will look back at the Alakija journey from glory to glory to glory!

Keep up the great work!
